The Crave Arizona culinary festival is 72 days away, so to get the early buzz going, the organizers are having a 72-hour sale on tickets.
The price? $72, naturally.
It's a special ticket package (regular price, $100) that includes admission to the event kickoff party and Top Bar Chef Competition, plus the Grand Tasting event that's the focal point of the weekend.
Scheduled for October 22 to 24, the three day gourmet party will also include dinners and wine tastings for an additional cost.
Looks like the countdown's already begun -- the $72 deal ends at midnight on Thursday.
