Tastes of Texas at Downtown Grand raises funds for Hurricane Harvey victims

31 August 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- With previous Culinary Road Trip stops that have paid homage to regions across the U.S., including New Orleans, Wisconsin, New York, Las Vegas and Philadelphia, Chef Scott Commings and the Downtown Grand Las Vegas are dedicating September's monthly event to a very special Texas Culinary Road Trip aimed to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Set to take place on Wednesday, 27 September from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., the event will be expanded to allow for up to 150 people to take part in this unique dining series. Tickets to the multi-course dinner will be $50 per person or $400 per table of eight. One hundred percent of all ticket sales will be donated directly to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund set up by Houston Mayor, Sylvester Turner. Tickets are now available for purchase online. In addition, Freedom Beat will continue to support the hurricane relief efforts by donating $2 from every lunch and dinner entrée purchased between 1 and 30 September.

Chef Scott's seventh dinner stop will take guests on a unique excursion Deep in the Heart of Texas with a western cuisine aimed to give event-goers a taste of the Lone Star State while raising money for those affected by the storm.

"During all of these previous dinners, I have always put forth the feeling, sense and message of camaraderie and community to all guests," notes Commings. "This is a great time to continue that effort and give the people of Las Vegas the opportunity to give back to the people in Texas, Freedom Beat Style."

The "Everything is Bigger in Texas" menu will include:

Frito Pie
Texas Caviar

BBQ platter
Smoked Brisket & Hot Links
"Franklin's Style BBQ"
White Bread

Cowboy Cut Ribeye
Beans & Potatoes

Pecan Pie

Supported by Texas-themed décor, live entertainment and photo opportunities, this intimate dinner series hosted monthly by Chef Scott Commings is normally limited to 25 seats inside of Freedom Beat, but due to the importance of helping the victims of the hurricane, the event will be open to approximately 150 guests and is moving into the Fremont Room at the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino in order to accommodate the demand for this special, one-off fundraising event set for Wednesday, 27 September at 6 p.m.

Individual tickets to this one-of-a-kind Culinary Road Trip dinner are available online now at Downtown Grand for $50 dollars (tax deductible) and are available on a first come, first served basis. For businesses looking to contribute, tables will be available for $400 (tax-deductible) with 100% of all ticket sales going to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
