DISNEY — If you can't get enough of Disney World and enjoy their food, as well, you're going to be a happy person: for select dates this fall and winter, visitors who purchase stays at select resorts as well as tickets to the theme park will be able to eat free. Totally, completely free. Be sure to book your stay at one of the qualifying hotels, which can be seen here, and then make your dining reservations, as popular restaurants tend to book out quickly.

BOOKS — Chef and food writer Ruth Reichl will discuss her first novel, Delicious!, at the Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges on Monday May 18. Reichl, who was the food critic at the Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times before becoming editor of Gourmet magazine, will discuss her first foray into fiction over a $78 per person, three-course seated lunch. More information is available here.

WALL STREET — Brazilian churrascaria Fogo de Chao is seeking to follow on the heels of Shake Shack and try its luck as a publicly traded company. Fogo de Chao, which opened in southern Brazil in 1979, now has 35 restaurants internationally, including 25 in the United States. They are famous for their all-you-can eat Brazilian churrasco-style meat, which is theatrically presented and cut at the table. The restaurant charges $59.95 per person for all-you-can eat meat and salad bar. Fogo de Chao plans to trade on the NASDAQ under the symbol "FOGO."
