There were roughly two dozen restaurants providing a wide variety of smoky goodness.

Texas and Oklahoma are feeling the devastating effects of weeks of heavy rain, tornadoes and flooding, and the American Red Cross is there, helping people in the Lone Star State get back on their feet.

The storms have impacted about 35 percent of the state, destroying or damaging thousands of homes. The Red Cross is providing shelter, food, water, relief supplies, health services and emotional support to people in need.
