This year's biggest event for food lovers, the Miami New Times' Iron Fork and Miami Spice kickoff event, presented by the Downtown Development Authority, is coming to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami on Thursday, August 1.
Today is your last chance to purchase tickets in advance.
The event, which features dozens of Miami's finest restaurants serving up their best offerings, and live musical performances by the cast of Legally Blonde, doesn't stop there.
It's also where you can find two of Miami's finest chefs engage in a heated battle for ultimate culinary supremacy and the title of Iron Fork 2013. Jamie DeRosa, chef/partner at Tongue & Cheek and Giorgio Rapicavoli, chef/partner at Eating House, will battle it out live and onstage in the most fierce culinary competition the world has ever known.

After that, tickets will be available at the door (while supplies last), with GA tickets $55, and a very limited number of VIP tickets available for $90.
