It’s time to celebrate ~LA COCINA~ for 10 years of making San Francisco a better place. Their annual gala is happening this Monday May 11th at the headquarters of Square, from 5:30pm to 10:30pm. There are a couple of different ways to participate, including a cocktail reception, seated dinner, and family-style after-party at nearby El Pipila.

The main part of the evening has been split into two portions, the cocktail reception and the sit-down dinner. During the cocktail reception, La Cocina alumni businesses will be serving their many dishes, alongside cocktails from Rye on the Road and wines selected by Shelley Lindgren, the wine director and owner of A16, A16 Rockridge, and SPQR. Calicraft Brewing will also be on hand, serving their local microbrew.

Dinner is nearly sold out (at press time, only two tickets were available—that’s what happens when Diana Kennedy is your special guest), but you can also check out the cocktail after-party, at nearby El Pipila from La Cocina alum Guadalupe Guerrero. The after-party is actually a family-style dinner and includes all the amazing pozole and sopes you can manage.

Available tickets begin at $25 for the after-party, $75 for the cocktail reception only, and dinner tickets start at $500 (sorry, the $250 price range is sold out, and the $500 range is almost completely sold out), so get yours now. 1455 Market St. at 11th St.
