There's an awesome free event (yes, FREE! for those who RSVP) going down at The Grove at Farmers Market this Thursday, Sept 25th at 7pm. Top Chef contestants Chris "CJ" Jacobsen and Antonia Lofaso (who is also executive chef at WeHo hot spot Foxtail) are scheduled to appear, thanks to Los Angeles Magazine and the Sherry Council of America. CJ and Antonia will be facing off against each other in a "friendly" cooking competition, and there are also free tastings and demos from Grove restaurants like The Farm of Beverly Hills, Morels French Bistro & Steakhouse, Maggiano's Little Italy, and The Whisper Lounge.

It's a sneak peek of Los Angeles Magazine's upcoming Food Event 08, scheduled for late October in Malibu. And yes, it is free, but you do need to RSVP a.s.a.p. to (323) 769-6392 or
