When Ramen Attacks: This is no vintage Japanese horror/sci-fi flick, and there's nothing spooky about it. Eight serious chefs from local and national kitchens converge on the Mill City Museum to honor the art of ramen but also in hopes of kicking cancer's ass, as well as to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Zen Box and just have an all-around slurpy good time. 

This year's event will be held on Sunday, September 27, beginning at noon. 

The following chefs will be presenting ramen creations: 

Keizo Shimamoto, Ramen Shack in New York City

Justin Carlisle, Red Light Ramen by Ardent in Milwaukee

Jorge Guzman, Surly Brewer's Table in Minneapolis

Jack Reibel, Il Foro & Paddy Shack in Minneapolis

John Ng, Zen Box Izakaya in Minneapolis

Also, chef demonstrations by the following: 

Kenshiro Uki, Ramen Lab & Sun Noodle in NYC 

Diane Yang, Spoon & Stable in Minneapolis

Thomas Boemer, Corner Table & Revival in Minneapolis

Other stuff to imbibe, ingest, and enjoy: 

Asahi Beer

Surly Brewing Co.

Frio Frio MN Ice Lollies

Kaishin Dojo Kendo Performers

Mu Daiko Drummers

Seven Dragons Kempo Martial Arts Team

Music by DJ Steez

The deal on admission: 

Admission is free, but this year organizers are offering a "Ramen Passport," which should assist with the long lines that the event has been plagued with in past years. If you're going more to eat ramen than to mix and mingle, you're "strongly encouraged" to purchase one of these puppies. Here's what a $40 passport gets you: 

Two tickets for ramen 

One street snack ticket

One dessert ticket

Two beverage tickets

Same-day admission for one to museum exhibits including guest chef demonstrations (first some, first serve) 

Additional individual tickets for ramen will be available for cash only onsite on a first come, first served basis until items run out. Passports go on sale September 8. Go to the Zen Box Izakaya Ramen Attack event page on that day for ticket sales information. 

Chef demos will require a Mill City Museum ticket.
