It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years, but Halloween marks the 10th anniversary of Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen, the restaurant that started the five-restaurant empire for Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman. To celebrate, they’re throwing a big party with some mighty fine culinary company from Memphis and around the country.

On Oct. 22, the party will be held at Old Dominick Distillery, next door to The Gray Canary, Ticer and Hudman’s latest restaurant to open. Food and drink stations will be set up and you can eat and drink until you can hold no more.
