2011 hasn't even kicked off and we already have two important dates for you to add to your calendar. The Village Voice tasting event, "Choice Eats," has been scheduled for Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at the 69th Armory on Lexington Avenue in New York City. But near term the most important date to remember Wednesday, January 26th, the day that tickets go on sale...
There will be a limited number of early bird ticket prices of VIP ($70) and general admission ($35) and regular full price tickets there after will be VIP ($80) and general admission ($45). Mark our words, these tickets will SELL OUT. These tickets ALWAYS SELL OUT.
Here's the VIP vs. regular breakdown: VIP ticket holders get to skip the line and have access to an exclusive VIP room one hour early at 5:30pm where there will be a sampling from selected restaurants, complimentary beverages "and other surprises."
General grant you admission for the sampling from 6:30 - 9:30 and complimentary beverages.
Two additions to next year's Choice Eats that we're super psyched about are the special "Choice Sweets" dessert tasting hour and "Choice Streets." For "Choice Sweets" VIP ticket holders can try out the selected treats and sweets in the special VIP room while regular attendees can grab desserts in the lobby on the way out.
For "Choice Streets" some of the city's most popular food trucks will be parked along the front of the Armory and "guests will be able to sample some snacks while waiting to gain entry to the main event--free of charge." Pretty sweet since the line to get in if you don't go the VIP route can be super long.
