Food-obsessed Lucky Peach magazine is throwing a Korean-inspired blow-out this month to celebrate the James Beard Award-winning publication's new book with food, drinks, dancing and karaoke. The big party, excellently-dubbed "Kimchi and Wieners," will take place in the lobby of The Theatre at Ace Hotel on May 22 to celebrate the release of The Wurst of Lucky Peach, a globe-trotting sausage travelogue and cookbook. They'll be serving up Korean BBQ-inspired sausage fest courtesy of chef Chris Oh of Hanjip and Seoul Sausage Co., and pouring Tiger Beer to cool off your palate.

The event will also feature karaoke hosted by Baby Ketten Karaoke, which is known for their rad songbook with sweet tracks you won't find elsewhere. There will also be a dance party thanks to a DJ set by Them Jeans of the food-centric The Stew Podcast, and you can chat it up with Lucky Peach editor-in-chief Chris Ying about the new book, sausages or whatever the beer inspires. The party is the first stop in a multi-city tour.

Tickets to the event can be found here and are $39.50, which includes food, beer, a copy of the book, and fun printed surprises by digital print and design company MOO. The event takes place on Sunday, May 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Ace Hotel is located at at 933 S Broadway, Downtown.
