With his commanding presence and entrancing voice, St. Louis native Vincent Price made a huge name for himself on the silver screen. But Price's abundant life wasn't all horror shows and monster movies; he was also a respected art collector and an acclaimed gourmand. Join Price's daughter, Victoria, as she celebrates the 50th-anniversary re-issue of her parents' best-selling cookbook, A Treasury of Great Recipes, 6:30 p.m. tonight at the St. Louis Banquet Center (5700 Leona Street; 314-605-3684 or www.tenaciouseats.com). Victoria joins the movies-and-foodies group Tenacious Eats for a screening of her father's film Theatre of Blood and a five-course meal based on recipes from the book. Admission is $75 in advance, and $95 the day of the event.
