Taste of Little Village: Flavors of Mexico
(Little Village, 26th and California)

Celebration of Peruvian Street Food
Chef Gaston Acurio hosts an event to benefit the Pachacútec Culinary Institute in Peru, which helps underprivileged children find kitchen careers. Drink Pisco sours, nibble world-class bites, bask in the glow of your effortless good deeds. ($125)
