OK, so we are always posting photo essays of amazing food events like last weekend's LA Magazine's Food Event or last year's Great Chefs of Los Angeles And you are probably thinking to yourself, "Self, one of these days we are going to go to one of these amazing events. We deserve to drink champagne and eat adorable and delicious little bites too."

Thanks to the Great Chefs of Los Angeles, you too can party like a foodie at CBS Studios. Right about now you are probably thinking, "But this is a recession. How can I afford it?" Well, "ticket giveaways and other exclusive promotions for the event will be offered through the official Facebook Fan Page and on the Twitter feed

The 23nd Annual Great Chefs of Los Angeles will be an afternoon filled with food from the likes of Celestino Drago, Michael Fiorelli, Ben Ford, and the Two Hot Tamales, Mary Sue Milliken & Susan Feniger. Wine, beer and champagne will flow freely from too many purveyers to even list, although we must admit Piper-Hiedsieck stood out in the press release.

George & Ann Lopez will be hosting the event and expect guests to include Andy Garcia, Samuel L. Jackson, and Paul Stanley. Are you thinking what we're thinking? Where else can you eat paana puri with a member of KISS? Other plans for the event include music, serious swag bags, and auctions to benefit the National Kidney Foundation of Southern California. Great Chefs has also gone organic. Their "Go Green, Go Organic” theme promotes eco-conscious living and sustainability, utilizing organic foodstuffs and eco-friendly products throughout the festivities."

At this point, you may be thinking, "I wish LAist would get out of my head. Stop telling me what I'm thinking, LAist! I don't want any more Facebook friends! I don't want to tweet!" We will happily exit your brain now. Just go to the website to purchase tickets at for a mere $150 per person. Did we mention Paul Stanley was going to be there? Eating stuff?
