Everyone can rejoice! South Beach Wine & Food Festival tickets are now available for everyone who didn't (or couldn't) get in on the Mastercard privy access. Hooray!
We peons are now able to choose from the wide variety of events to take place February 21 - 23, 2013. We here at Short Order realize that SoBe Fest is not the cheapest of weekends to budget for -- but considering that it only comes around once a year, and seemingly gets better every time, the splurge should be considered a birthday/Christmas/Hanukkah gift to yourself. (And if you're so selfless that even that isn't reason enough to attend, keep in mind the festival's proceeds go towards FIU's tourism and hospitality program.)
