If you’re a modern foodie you not only live to eat you also live to tweet about the food you love. On Wednesday you can combine both passions as HoustonPBS hosts Bon AppeTweet, an initiative encouraging public television viewers to use Twitter to share comments and recommendations about food programming using the hashtag #HoustonpbsEats.
To mark the event, Channel 8 will be airing food programming from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. and using breaks to air profiles on Houston restaurants.
The Houston Chowhounds are getting in on the action by hosting a viewing party and fundraiser for PBS the same night from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. at 14 Pews (the former Aurora Picture Show, 800 Aurora St. in the Heights). Admission is $20 and includes a one-year membership to PBS, which usually goes for $40. All proceeds will be donated to PBS.
The Chowhounds event will, naturally, feature some good chow: Hot dogs by Revival Meats on buns by Slow Dough; sandwiches from the new Flora & Muse in CityCentre; gelato from Trentino Gelato and beer from Saint Arnold.
The Chowhounds invite all to this casual event. Be prepared to Tweet. Whole Foods is conducting a Tweet Challenge by donating $1 per tweet to the station to support food-related programming.
