Food-centric Lucky Peach magazine is throwing a special event downtown in February that will feature food and writing from top talent from Los Angeles and beyond.The two-part event, known as Eating Out Loud, takes place on Feb. 2, 2016 and will begin at the historic Million Dollar Theatre with readings from the likes of food critic Jonathan Gold, chef Roy Choi, Lucky Peach founder and chef David Chang (of New York's Momofuku empire), musician Kim Gordon (of Sonic Youth fame) and comedian Eric Wareheim.

Following the readings, the party will continue next door at Grand Central Market, where chefs will prepare one-of-a-kind food pairings for complimentary beer and wine. Participating chefs include Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of Animal, Kris Yenbamroong of Night+Market, Jessica Koslow of Sqirl, and Brooks Headley of New York's Superiority Burger.

Tickets to the 21+ event are now on sale and go for $45 each (plus a service fee), and includes admission to the Million Dollar Theatre performances, the reception at Grand Central Market, free beer and wine and a one year subscription to Lucky Peach. Food at the event, however, must be purchased separately.

A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit Zero Foodprint, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint of the restaurant industry.
