Tickets went on sale this morning to the general public for the New York Wine & Food Festival, perhaps best described by Joshua David Stein as "a branding branded joyous circle jerk of Food Network personalities, actual chefs, the various clown fish who crowd the culinary coral." It goes down as September 29 - October 2.
The Burger Bash (hosted by Whoopi Goldberg who's filling in for Rachael Ray this year) is already sold out, as is Bobby Flay's taco and tequila event. Hot tickets that will most definitely sell out include Carts in the Parc hosted by Andrew Zimmern, Paula Deen's Sunday Jazz Brunch, and Meatball Madness hosted by Giada De Laurentiis. New events include The Best Thing I Ever Ate Between Bread hosted by Duff Goldman, Fried hosted by Tyler Florence, and Rock and Bowl with Anne Burrell.
