I love this idea: Go out to eat on Wednesday, Oct. 1, and be a do-gooder without even breaking a sweat. A whole slew of Texas restaurants are part of the first-ever statewide dine-out day next week. If you visit them on Oct. 1, you’ll be promoting Texas foods and wines; on top of that, many restaurants are donating part of their daily profits to Texas food banks. The event is the first-ever Go Texan Restaurant Round-Up, sponsored by the Texas Department of Agriculture. Participating restaurants will have special Texas menu items, a fixed-price Texas meal, a Texas food and wine pairing, or a Texas wine list. So go forth and eat (out).
