At March 5 Foodie Fete Celebrating Female Restaurateurs, Glam Gourmands Go for Gold!

Caracol

WITH MARCH COMES spring (hooray!), Women’s History Month, and Houston’s Let’s Talk & Celebrate, a foodie fete hosted by Let’s Talk Womxn restaurateurs. On the evening of March 5 at Caracol, hosts Tracy Vaught, Sharon Haynes and Alli Jarrett will honor International Women’s Day with abundant food, power cocktails and entertainment.


For the glamorous event, the organization encourages all men and women to come “drenched or accented” in gold to revel in Houston’s gourmet power. Come for the feast and stay for the party, with 30-plus tasting stations to peruse, and short presentations from the hosts. Let’s Talk Womxn is a volunteer-based, collaborative movement of women-owned food and beverage entrepreneurs. Founded in Chicago, it has expanded to 14 cities nationwide with more than 700 members. Each Let’s Talk city will host its own celebration across the nation in March.

At the Houston bash, look for representatives from Angel Share, Bocage Catering, Ate Kitchen, KUJI Kitchen, Black Chef Table, Bonfire Wings, Caracol, Dandelion Café, Fat Cat Creamery, Harold’s Restaurant, Bar & Terrace, Hive Bee Farm, Kirin’s, Kriti Kitchen, Low Tide Kitchen & Bar, Mai’s Restaurant, Renaissance Wine, Southern Sweets Bakehouse, Stetsi Brewing, Tacos A Go Go, The Upside Pub, Thistle Draftshop, Three Brothers Bakery, Timeless Vodka and Traveler’s Table.

A little background on the Houston co-hosts: Geologist-turned-restaurateur Tracy Vaught is a native Houstonian who founded H Town Restaurant Group, which encompasses Hugo’s, Caracaol, Xochi, URBE and Backstreet Café. Alli Jarrett, who was recognized by the Texas Restaurant Association as the 2022 Outstanding Restaurateur of the Year, is proprietor of Harold’s and Low Tide. And Sharon Haynes founded Tacos A Go Go, on the grow with five Houston locations.

Let’s Talk Womxn members say the group is not an organization or an entity, but an action-led movement by women business owners as peers with a focus to collaboratively boost members’ businesses. LTW is open to all women owners of food and drink establishments.

The March 5 event will be held from 6:30 to 9:30pm with power women cocktails and live DJ music. Cost is $100 per person. Tickets and more details can be found here.

Come hungry and thirsty!
