Iron Fork & Miami Spice Kickoff MasterCard Pre-Sale Starts Today

Miami New Times and the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) have combined forces this year to bring you what's bound to be the summer's hottest ticket -- the Iron Fork/Miami Spice Kickoff event, presented by Miami Downtown Development Authority.

On Thursday, August 1, from 7-10 p.m., The Adrienne Arsht Center will welcome attendees, who will sample foods from Miami Spice participating restaurants and listen to great music.

In addition, VIP ticket holders will be able to indulge in fine Wines of Chile, enjoy Bacardi cocktails and drink Stella Artois. Plus, VIP'ers will be able to access the event at 6 p.m. for an extra hour of food and fun.

The event will feature nearly 50 of Miami's best restaurants including A Fish Called Avalon;

Baoli; Atrio at the Conrad; City Hall; Il Mulino; Catch Grill and Bar; and Tuyo.

Tickets don't go on sale until June 1 -- unless you have a MasterCard.

Starting today, May 29, for three days only, you can get a head start on your summer culinary party plans by taking advantage of our Iron Fork & Miami Spice Kickoff MasterCard pre-sale. To sweeten the pot, we'll give you a 20% discount off both General Admission and VIP tickets. With the pre-sale, GA tickets are $32 (regularly $40); VIP tickets are $60 (regularly $75).

No promo code is needed. Just visit with your MasterCard and you'll get your tickets before anyone else -- and they're a bargain, dahling. But hurry -- because the pre-sale (and the discount) is only good for three days.

And, as the MasterCard commercials would say:

GA Tickets to Iron Fork & Miami Spice Kickoff -- $32. VIP tickets to Iron Fork & Miami Spice Kickoff -- $60. Telling your friends you got your tickets before they did (and at a discount) -- Priceless!
