Looking to Attend the SoBe Wine & Food Fest? You Still Can
Forget the Amstel Light Burger Bash hosted by Rachael Ray Thursday, February 25. The burger-and-beer extravaganza featuring patties by Bobby Flay, Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn, Michael's Genuine, and Shake Shack, to name a few, sold out in October.
Tickets to the Perrier-Jouët BubbleQ, hosted by Emeril Lagasse Friday, February 26 at the Delano Hotel, however, are surprisingly still available. The evening of bubbly and barbecue, which was once among the first to sell out, is really your only option before the weekend. Perhaps it's the $350 price tag. But then, a $525-per-person tribute dinner honoring French chef Daniel Boulud sold out long ago.
If Food Network celebs are your thing, you've missed the boat. Paula Deen's Kiss My Grits Jazz Brunch, Ming Tsai's Dim Sum and Disco at the Setai, and Guy Fieri's Moon Over Miami closing party are all sold out. Your only event option to snag a glimpse at a famous face is the Whole Foods Grand Tasting Village Saturday, February 27, and Sunday, February 28, where you can watch your favorite star do cooking demos and then wait in line for an eternity to get their autograph. (Oh, and you can also battle crowds to taste wines and sample foods.) Tickets cost $212.50 per person. If you go, catch Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert who will both be onstage Sunday at 4:15 p.m.
