The 4th Annual Rails to Restaurants, a "METRO Rail Crawl," will be held Monday, Nov. 16, 2015 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.  The event kicks off with a party at the University of Houston Downtown, followed by a quick trip on the Red and Green Lines to a Dynamo Stadium Block Party.  Next, participants are invited to get on board the rail again for the "Tasting Ride," where they will get to sample food, drinks and desserts from 10 downtown venues.

"Rails to Restaurants" is one of the signature events during Houston Citizenship Month, an annual volunteer-driven celebration highlighting Houston’s diversity by hosting events that celebrate the many social and economic contributions of everyone who calls Houston home.

"Rails to Restaurants" is $20 per person and 100 percent of the proceeds benefit Houston Greeters, a non-profit organization that showcases the City of Houston through tours and unique events. Click here to purchase tickets.
