Get a jump on the holiday leftover drudgery! Dine out with fabulous people!

The holiday season is upon us, and the chef in your family is cooking nonstop. Mark your calendars for several opportunities to lighten the load of said chef (and give everyone a break from the leftover parade) by eating out at one of CoMo’s locally owned and operated restaurants.

It’s a great time to take a friend out to eat for the holidays, grab some carry out/catering for your event, or pick up a gift/gift card from the restaurants.

Feast 2 Fight AIDS events are dining-out fundraisers. All you do is show up at the venue at the time of your choosing during normal business hours (with 10 of your closest friends in tow, we hope!), bring the F2FA Flyer for that month’s F2FA, and present it to the server/cashier when you pay. Then the nice restaurant owner sends Trail to a Cure a check for 15% of what you and your friends spend on food, libations, gift certificates! Easy peasy! And it’s for a nonprofit that has raised $52,000 towards the fight against HIV/AIDS in the last four years!

November’s F2FA is at Smokin’ Chick’s BBQ every Wednesday (there are 5 of them, so there are 3 more opportunities)! Here’s the flyer! Try the pulled pork, pictured above. Good eats are calling your name! And they have spice rubs and more for sale (stocking stuffer?). And it’s not everyplace that the folks whose name is on the marquee actually wait on customers. Chick and Lissa take good care of their patrons.

December’s is on a THURSDAY–it’s on December 1 (not Dec. 7, which would be our typical 1st Wednesday F2FA), which you know, of course, is World AIDS Day. F2FA is conveniently scheduled for La Siesta Mexican Restaurant downtown, so it makes a great complement to the WAD activities  going on in the downtown/Stephens area. Here’s the flyer! We’re looking forward to chiles en nogada, but there is a lot of great food (and Dos Equis on tap and MARGARITAS!) on the menu. “Los hermanos Guillen” and Paco and their crew will take care of you. Watch the city/county health department Facebook page for details about the Columbia World AIDS Day observance.

Shakespeare's Pizza--The Masterpiece

January’s is at Shakespeare’s (one of our favorite venues)! It’s on Wednesday, January 4th, 2012. Both locations (or all 3 if the new south location is open by then). Here’s the flyer! The masterpiece, pictured above, is tasty, but let us recommend whole wheat crust, artichoke hearts, and pepper cheese (plus any additions you might prefer). Kurt’s crew will make sure you enjoy a slice of great pie–or more!

Please do TTAC (and these locally owned/operated establishments) a favor and print a few extra flyers for each event and pass them out to friends or colleagues.

And you HAVE marked your calendar for TTAC’s 5th anniversary Ride/Walk/Run event? We have added a half-marathon option!

It’s on Cinco de Mayo–Saturday 5/5/2012! Really. Mark your calendars. You don’t want to miss it! Maybe we’ll even have a unicycle rider wearing a sombrero! Registration and fundraising are opening soon!

Do you think Paco would lend this sombrero to Dean, our expert unicyclist?

And if you’re not following us on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter what are you waiting for?

Thanks for reading and passing along to anyone you know in Central Missouri who might also like food. If you’re on our website reading this, there are some nifty little sharing widgets just below these words. Use them, please!
