Charity Off The Hook Fundraiser, which falls on Monday. The event lasts from 6 to 10 PM, which gives you plenty of time to visit all 11 tasting stations from area chefs like Scott Drewno (Chiko) and Anna Bran Leis (Taqueria del Barrio), hit the raw bar and beer garden, enjoy a couple rounds of poker, listen to live music, and indulge in cigars and a little street magic. Proceeds from tickets, $75 a pop, go to local charities.
