South Beach Wine & Food Festival

South Beach Wine & Food Festival Opens Ticket Presale For Amex Holders

The 2012 South Beach Wine & Food Festival comes to town February 23-26 and promises to once again be the premiere foodie event in Miami.

Festival favorites like Burger Bash ($225) hosted by Rachael Ray and Paula Deen's Sunday Brunch ($150) will be joined by some intriguing new events like Conscious Bite Out with Geoffrey Zakarian ($175) and Trucks on the Beach hosted by Andrew Zimmern ($95).

Tickets go on sale to the general public on October 24, but American

Express cardholders can purchase tickets starting today through Sunday,

October 23.

American Express is also offering 15 percent off the

purchase of a Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village ticket including

speed line access (regularly $225, with discount $191.50), or a Festival

Weekend Pass (regularly $1,280, with discount $1,088) to cardholders

during pre-purchase.

The above mentioned prices don't include tax and service fees, by the way. Hey - we never said the SBWFF was cheap...only fun.
