Looking for something to put in your mouth this weekend? Here are a few things we have on our plate including a fundraiser for food community member Lisa Guingo, who recently was diagnosed with lung cancer, and a Greek cooking class with Denise Clayton of Denise Is Cooking. Don't forget this weekend is your last chance to vote for the best flavor in Gelato Spot's chef flavor competition. And mark your calendars for our New Times Best of A'Fare. Tickets are on sale now.

Fundraiser for Lisa Giungo at Union at the Biltmore
Friday, September 6

When the food community heard early last month that restaurateur, chef, and businesswoman Lisa Giungo had been diagnosed with lung cancer, support poured out to help her beat the aggressive disease. This Friday, Union at the Biltmore Fashion Park will host its own fundraising event in Lisa G.'s honor. From 6 to 8 p.m., 20 percent of all sales will go to Lisa -- there will also be raffles, prizes and music. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased online and you can also make cash donations through the event website.

"Grin and Beer It" Art Show
Friday, September 6

This First Friday art show combines beer and art as 6th Avenue Gallery and local designer Erik Von Weber present a show of craft beer labels inspired by coveted values. The fictitious beer label art will be enlarged as posters, coasters, and T-shirts throughout the gallery in appreciation of the important but often-overlooked virtues of life. "Grin and Beer It: A Cheeky Menu for Hoppy Living" will be on show from 6 to 10 p.m., during which time attendees will be able to sample craft beer and vote for their favorite labels.
