Iron Fork is less than a week away, and we have a sweet deal for those who've been slacking on getting their tickets.
Until midnight today, Short Order readers can buy general admission tickets for $20 (that means you save $15 off the regular price). Before we give you the details on how to buy, here's what you can expect next Thursday, October 21.
Sample food from local restaurants while you sip drinks courtesy of Famosa Beer, Bombay Sapphire, and Barefoot Wine from our open bar. Yes, open bar.
This year's Iron Fork, our third, will be held at downtown club Grand Central. Doors open at 7 p.m. But with fall upon us, why keep it all indoors? To make it all more fun, we're having a block party. The street will be closed off, and many of the participating restaurants will grill while you listen to saxophonist Jon Saxx and local band Barefoot & Brendon.
Area 31's chef John Critchley will defend his Iron Fork title against chef Jose Luis Flores (De Rodriguez Cuba). Who will take the pan? Leading up to the competition, check out one of the event's cooking demos.
And to close off the night, we'll announce the winners of the first Short Order Awards. You voted. Now you can find out which chefs, mixologists, and pastry chefs are taking the prizes.
So go on, visit newtimesironfork.com and enter code NEW TIMES when checking out to get your $20 general admission tickets. Remember, it's valid only until today at midnight, so stop slacking already.
