Who needs a Festival of Lights when you can have a Festival of Chefs?
Disney's smarmy little rodent, perhaps. But for the rest of us, a festival of hotshot chefs trying to outdo each other in wowing our taste buds and stuffing our gullets is a helluva lot more like it, especially when it's held in the swanky, oceanfront world headquarters of impossibly firm breasts and well-toned abs, Nikki Beach.
This 22nd annual festival November 10 is for a good cause, though, with all proceeds benefiting Easter Seals South Florida. Among this year's festing chefs: host Michael Gilligan (W South Beach), Ralph Pagano (STK), Sam Gorenstein (BLT Steak) and Clay Conley (Buccan, formerly at Azul).
Tickets to get your share of all the food, wine, bubbly, and swell items in the silent auction cost $100 each and can be acquired here.
