Holy mole - 25 of them made by both pros and abuelas?

Has anyone been to the Mole to Die For Tasting Contest at the Mission Cultural Center? It is the fifth annual so I'm hoping someone went and it is as good as it sounds.,

From the SF Weekly ...

"One of the best things in the world is the sight of competing grandmas. Our favorite place to see amped-up octogenarians here in the city is at the Mole to Die For Tasting Contest. Your door fee gets you samples of about twenty-five versions ... and the event is divided into two categories: Professional and home made. The latter is where the abuelas come in, hauling crockpots of their own special recipes. While the public pigs out, the grandmas sit around nervously, eyeballing each other and ordering children around. It's spectacular, in a funny, small, delightful way."

For $7, it sounds like the deal. Is worth my while to move my schedule around and get down there this Wednesday?
