You know what's better than food? Food that you don't have to make or clean up after. That's one of the great things about KISS FM's Taste of El Paso. Taste of El Paso happens Thursday, November 8, at the Convention Center.

You'll get a sample of appetizers, nine main courses, desserts, and tasting tickets valid for a variety of wine and craft beer selections. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. for an hour and a half cocktail hour (cash bar) where light appetizers will be hosted, then the doors open at 6 p.m. for a three-hour tour of some of El Paso's best restaurants
