The VIP tickets for the 6th Annual Choice Eats sold out in a record thirty minutes. Thirty minutes people! And they only have a limited number of general admission tickets left. Here's who's coming so far...
Black Shack Burger
Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter

And here are the details. This year's event will be held Tuesday, March 19, 2013 from 6:30 - 9:30 PM at the 69th Armory on Lexington Avenue. General Admission tickets are $50 and include "complimentary food and dessert tasting, craft beer pairings, wine & liquor beverages, and entertainment throughout the night." Also, in addition to "Eats" you get "Choice Sweets" tasty dessert morsels from some of the best spots in the city. A portion of the ticket sales go to Slow Food NYC.
For a food event in the city on this scale with this much good food (and booze), it's seriously a no-brainer. You will get your money's worth. Click here for tickets before they sell out and you're stuck buying pricey scalped ones on Craigslist.
