Oh, and 100% of ticket sales go to benefit hunger relief charities Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength, so not only will you be getting top-notch 'cue (and cocktails, and brews, and wines, and live music, and fun-ass times on the dance floor), but you’ll also be doing some good. Get tickets now before they sell out again, and if you need more inspiration, scroll through some of the dishes from last year below.
