The main event is followed by an after party with more food sampling and live music, but the question is: Will anyone have room for that after the main event? But it wd be a good time to socialise and compare notes about the main event.

Ticket price includes all demonstrations, food, beverages, and parking fees, as well as a subscription to Los Angeles magazine. A part of proceeds benefits the event's philanthropic partner Kids Courage.
