Hey Phoenix, are you ready to party?
Because on October 7, New Times will host its 17th annual Best of Phoenix A'Fare, a celebration of all things awesome and local. This year's event will be held at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa from 8 to 11 p.m. You can expect all the usual stuff — as in live entertainment, food, and plenty of drinks.
And here's the even better news: though tickets don't go on sale to the public until Monday, you can buy your pre-sale tickets now with a special promo code. All you have to do visit the Best of Phoenix A'Fare Ticketfly page and enter the code "NOMS."
Your $40 general admission ticket will get entry into the event, food samples, cocktails, wine, beer, and entertainment. Participating restaurants include Caramel Addiction, Carlsbad Tavern, Mother Bunch Brewing, Ms. C’s BBQ Chicken N Ribs, Oatmeal Café, Tacos De Juarez, Talebu Coffee & Wine Café, T-Bone Steakhouse, Volstead Public House, and Wingstop, to name a few.
Additional sponsors include Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Shock Top, Stella Artois, Four Peaks, Hornitos, Gentleman Jack, AZ Distilling Co, Arizona State Fair, EOS Fitness, Phoenix Relief Center, Highern Chef, Valley Chevy, Stacy’s @ Melrose, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, and The Monastery with more to come.
A limited number of VIP admission tickets will also be available for $60, and include an hour early entry into the event at 7 p.m., and VIP gift bag.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, August 15 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online. A portion of this year’s Best of Phoenix A’fare proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
