More Tickets Released for Vegas Uncork'd (But They Are Going Fast)
Fresh off our all-we-could-eat buffet extravaganza, we have to admit it's hard to even think of food right now, let alone a four-day foodie festival like Vegas Uncork'd. But we know we'll be feeling better come May 6 and really, how could we pass up the chance to see and taste the best food from the best chefs in Sin City?
There are over 30 events taking place from May 6-9 at the Bon Appetit-sponsored affair and you can buy tickets to these events through the Vegas Uncork'd website. We had word that most of the tickets were sold-out but it looks like they just released a new batch yesterday.
Still on sale are tickets to the Celebrity Chef Blackjack Tournament, poolside at Encore on May 6 ($350 for players; $150 for spectators); The Grand Tasting, poolside at Caesars which features sample bites from a ton of Las Vegas restaurants ($175); as well as several demonstrations and dinners with chefs like Alain Ducasse, Charlie Palmer, Francois Payard, Bradley Ogden and Wolfgang Puck.
Tickets to the "much-coveted" but sold out Bobby Flay dinner at Caesars on May 6 have been sold-out but if you're desperate to dine with the Mesa Grill master, you can bid on two tickets via a charity auction with Three Square, Las Vegas' food bank. Only one pair of tickets is up for grabs and the last bid in was for $500. Tickets are regularly $195.
Not able to afford an auction price? You can put yourself on the waiting list by calling 877.884.8993. Just make sure you don't do any all-access buffets before you get to Vegas Uncork'd. We certainly won't!
