Modern Luxury editor and Angeleno critic Brad A. Johnson is busy organizing his annual Chef's Night Out, which celebrates his picks for the city's best that he Tweeted like a man possessed at the end of last month. An incredibly solid lineup of toques will be there, from radicals like The Bazaar's Josh Wigham, Michael Voltaggio, Benjamin Bailly of Petrossian, Ray Garcia, Laurent Quenioux, and Ludo, to stalwarts like Gino Angelini, Hiroyuki Urasawa, Susan Feniger, David Myers, Josie LeBalch, Josiah Citrin, and both Suzannes Tracht and Goin, among many more. In addition to that killer set, Chef's Night Out features the restaurant awards and one giant raffle/auction, a ticket for which is included for all entrants. Prizes include a dinner at LudoBites and stays at Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris, hotels in Hawaii and Bangkok, and our own Beverly Hills Hotel. And how do you win two free tickets, saving yourself $95 to $150 per entry?

There are a few ways to enter. You can become either Angeleno's or Mr. Johnson's pal on Facebook and write a message telling them which chef or restaurant is your favorite. If your not on "The Facebook," you can also re-tweet any of the man's or magazine's messages about the party on Twitter and and you'll be entered to win. The winner will be announced on July 28th, giving you three days to purchase tickets if you alas, fail in your quest. All is not lost though, as a share of proceeds go to help fund after-school programs through L.A.'s Best. See details, plus the current line-up of chefs and raffle donors below.
