You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll definitely get hungry -- which is why it's a good thing there will be food and drink available for purchase at Cocina 10. Admission is free, although we'd love it if you bring a canned good or two to benefit St. Mary's Food Bank.

This is one of our favorite nights of the year. Hope to see you there.
