Meet Edible Houston's 2018 Local Heroes! 

Right now you are nominating your heroes and soon you'll cast your vote. On May 10th we'll celebrate with them! Join Ernie Manouse, our fabulous emcee, as we announce the winners of Edible Houston's Third Annual Local Hero Awards. We'll celebrate with local bites, brews, booze, wine and live music with the Will Van Horn band.

Each ticket gets a Local Hero Award pint glass, drinks, bites & samples from our finalists, live music and a raffle ticket for a chance to win fabulous prizes.
