The fourth annual celebration, which will be held at Lone Star Brewery (600 Lone Star Blvd.), takes place Wednesday, June 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. and brings together a veritable who's-who of chefs both local and regional. 

Here's why you need to get your tickets ASAP before tonight's 8 p.m. cutoff.

First off, it's hosted by these two. Artist Justin Parr (right) and chef Robbie Nowlin of Boudro's (left) essentially tap their pals around town to make amazing food. The two usually serve up a fun dish, like last year's Hot Wells kimchi, while buzzing around the grounds taking care of business. This year the two are dishing out a grilled pork belly flat bread "taco" with Hot Wells kimchi, sambal mayo, cotija cheese and garden herbs. 

They invite folks like chef Jason Dady, who mentored Nowlin during his time at The Lodge in Castle Hills. A pro at all things food event, Dady usually busts out great interactive snacks like the hamachi ceviche bite he made for Culinaria's grand tasting.
