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.

Here's the line-up:

Cynthia Clark Harvey Elizabeth Maria Naranjo Judy Nichols Robrt Pela Sativa Peterson Kim Porter Susan Tully

Stay tuned to Chow Bella for more details.

Editor's Note: Due to a scheduling conflict, Tania Katan will be unable to make the event. But rest assured, you'll get to read her piece on Chow Bella.
