    I was at this event last year, but I promise it's worth every penny if not more. It's unlimited food, open bar, and wonderful people and chefs everywhere!

    From last year's event, and things you can look forward to this year!

    There is just something about bartenders that make them really bad a**... And I don't even drink.

    Everyone was given a masu for sake.
    Fun fact: Masu was originally used to measure rice during the feudal period in Japan.

    Otafuku, serving takoyaki, yakisoba and okonomiyaki.

    Open beer bar!

    Handmade soba noodles! You can't get any more fresh than this.

    Hundreds of people socializing, eating and having a wonderful time.

    Top chef Lee Ann Wong saying a toast and thanking everyone who came.

    Unfortunately, we can't grill at the venue this year. Brooklyn Brewery's fire alarm kept going off last year, so they asked us not to. Oh well.

    Thank you so much for reading! I really appreciate everyone's support here on KKF.
