These chefs will be cooking up a storm.

For the third year, chefs Kevin Gillespie and Joey Ward of Gunshow will host their popular series, “Hired Guns,” which kicks off with a two-night dinner Sunday, Jan. 31 and Monday, Feb. 1. The duo two will partner with Bryan Voltaggio, Gillespie’s friend from a previous season of “Top Chef” as well as several others. Here’s the “Hired Guns” line up:

More from the press release:

Tickets for the Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 dinners are $95 each and go on sale Dec. 31, 2015 via Xorbia. For those who want to attend all six dinners in the series, season tickets are available for $75 per person through Dec. 31, 2015 and for $85 per person starting Jan. 1, 2016 at RedBeardMerch. (Drinks, tax and gratuity are additional.)

Hired Guns began in 2013 as a way to lure some of the country’s most talked about chefs to Gunshow for a two-night showcase of their signature flavors and personalities alongside the restaurant’s featured items.

Gunshow is located at 924 Garrett Street. The restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. Reservations are accepted but not required.

Even though tickets will go on sale after Christmas, still add it to your experience gift list. For more ideas, click here .
