What a prix fixe! For $35 (half of which is tax-deductible), you can sample food and wine from Star Canyon, Mediterraneo, Gaspar's, Parigi, Dakota's, Cafe Margaux, The French Room, Blue Mesa Grill, Laurels, and dozens more of Dallas' best restaurants. Plus--the reason food industry events are such profitable charity--you'll be doing a good deed. "A Sample of Love, a Sample of Taste" benefits the Dallas Chapter of The NAMES Project--the quilt that features the names of AIDS victims. The first-time event will be held at The Apparel Mart on September 17, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are available by calling 520-ARTS or at the door.
