This Wednesday, 20 of Miami’s finer restaurants will serve food and drink pairings at the fifth-annual To Live & Dine in Miami at the Moore Building (4040 NE Second Ave., Miami). The excuse for the event is the yearly restaurant issue of MIAMI magazine, the magazine for people who like to say “Miami” loudly. But the reason to go is that you can be fed a ton of awesome food without having to schlep all across town to get it. Also, a portion of the ticket sales benefits Chapman Partnership, which not only has 800 beds for homeless men, women, and children in Miami but offers its clients job training, health care, and comprehensive case management. Let’s face it: You’re a glutton. But now, after years of eating your community out of house and home, you can finally give back a little without cutting down on your insatiable cravings. Lots of top eateries are serving at the event, including Eating House, Oak Tavern, db Bistro Moderne, the Dutch, Zuma, and Restaurant Michael Schwartz, which is similar to chef Michael Schwartz but curses less. New Times’ Best New Restaurant for 2013, Khong River House, will be there too. The event runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets cost $42.99 including fees at liveanddinemiami.eventbrite.com. Admission is for those age 21 and up. For more about Chapman Partnership, visit chapmanpartnership.org.
