South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cheap Seats: Tickets Under $100

At $225 per ticket, The Grand Tasting Village requires a major financial commitment.
Although the South Beach Wine & Food Festival is still a month away, the time to get those tickets is now. Indeed, some of the more popular events are sold out. You've already missed the meaty Burger Bash, BBQ & The Blues hosted by Food Network's "Iron Chef" Michael Symon, and Paula Deen's annual Sunday brunch (although it may not be the same now that she has to watch her diet). Many of the "New York Times Dinner Series" are also off the table, as well is your chance to mingle with Antonio Banderas, who is appearing at the festival on behalf of his winery in Spain.

So what's still available, and more importantly, affordable? The "Grand Tasting Village" should be upped to at least the size of a regional municipality for the $225 per ticket price. And "Best of the Best" better be the damn best; at the bargain cost of $350, we are thinking that everything should be topped with caviar or foie gras. Festival for the rest of us? Here's our round up of events that are priced under $100, get the cheap seats while you can.
