There's not really gonna be a food fight at the United Way of the Mark Twain Area's 2012/2013 Kickoff Campaign event, but it gave me an excuse to use the old Animal House movie phrase and I haven't had that excuse for a long time.  While I'm guessing my food fight hopes won't materialize, the 7th annual Taste Of Missouri will happen Thursday, September 6th at the Quality Inn and Suites in Hannibal from 6 to 8pm.

A family ticket only costs $25 and from what I understand, that means you and your seven kids can load up on plate after plate of yummy food from participating restaurants from all around the area.  If you're alone (sorry about that) and your match.com date isn't available that night, individual tickets are available for $10.
