  • The Pitch's annual Taste of KC is this weekend.

If you don t want to dine alone, then that usually means you have to

compromise when it comes to mealtime. Well, for one night, you can have

your cake and a date, too. The Pitch's annual Taste of KC is back, at the

Power & Light District from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Grab

bites from more than 20 area restaurants, including Waldo Pizza, New

York Dawg Pound, Dolce Baking Company, Pieroguys, and the Latin Bistro.

While you sample local cuisine, top chefs battle for the coveted Gold

Fork. This year, the Raphael's Charles d'Ablaing takes on Eric Carter

(President Hotel), Tito Le Chef (Latin Bistro), Matt Chaney (Rozzelle

Court), Tate Roberts (EBT) and Jesse Vega (Guadalupe Center). Tickets

are $35 if you order today, or $40 at the door. For an extra $10, a VIP ticket

gets you a goodie bag and entry to the event a half-hour early. Visit

pitch.com/tasteofkc for more information. This event is 21-and-older.

Trying to cut back on eating flesh? Then you don't want to attend the Zombie Fest at the Beaumont Club on Friday night. The zombie party benefiting the Homeless Services Coalition of Greater Kansas City kicks off at 7 p.m. The cover is $10, although it's $4 if you arrive dressed as a zombie.

It's time for ice cream. The Kansas City Ice Cream Festival is at the Overland Park International Trade Center (6800 W. 115th St.) on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. You can sample ice cream and learn how to make your own via interactive demonstrations. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for children 3 to 10 years old, and free for children 2 and younger. A portion of the proceeds benefits Autism Speaks. 

Toga! Toga! Toga! The chant made famous by Animal House may be trotted out a few times at the fourth annual

Toga Party

at Tasso's Greek Restaurant on Saturday, May 14. If youve got the best

toga (the contest is set for 8 p.m.), youll be driving home in a 1979

Lincoln Continental. The contest will be judged by Mark Metcalf, who

actually played Doug Neidermeyer in Animal House. The ticket price of

$20 includes two drinks.
