The hilarious impromptu evening has also been celebrating local talent in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, and on the high seas.

Kitchen Café is fast becoming a unique and exemplary nightspot featuring the hottest entertainers. Owned by chef and jazz guitarist/singer Tony Hakim, Kitchen Café offers a variety of homemade cuisine ranging from pot roast to Mediterranean Tapas to signature salad entrees.
