Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, chef Dave Mau whips up a free meal for anybody and everybody who bothers to show up at the Memphis Santora. Why? It might be because Maus a nice guy, but who caresits free and its delicious. While the dinners mostly attract the hipster sect and not, say, the homeless sect, the food is very much gourmet: No dry burgers and fries here, friends. Maus dishes have ranged from baked eggplant and peri-peri chickenand he doesnt forget dessert, either. Hows bananas foster sound? Theres even free entertainment to go with that free meal. in the past, Mau has invited local favorites like Satisfaction frontman Michael Rosas, Red Yellow Sparks and the New Limb to play some tunes as patrons chow down. This Wednesdays event features Huntington Beach funk/rock/soul outfitand 2009 OC Music Awards nomineeHumanlab. Sure beats that free taco coupon for Jack-in-the-Box, right?
