I like a festive holiday meal as much as the next person, especially if the next person is cooking. Especially if the person cooking is Chef Alana Shock. And this Sunday, Alana is selling complete Italian meals for a stunningly low $20!

See, Alana's is hosting a benefit for local guitar legend John Boerstler, whose severe health problems (he's doing better now and recuperating at the Cleveland Clinic) have caused him to miss many months worth of gigs.

Sunday's fundraising soiree will also feature a cash bar (cheap drinks!), plus the terrific Derek DiCenzo Trio. If you know John's friends like I know John's friends (and I'm one of them), you know this'll be one to remember. See you there.
