Tickets on sale for 2012 SoBe Wine & Food Festival

Tonight at midnight, tickets to the general public go on sale for the 2012 South Beach Wine and Food Festival.

Guy Fieri's featured event at SoBe Wine & Food Fest will be Moët Hennessy's The Q presented by Allen Brothers, sponsored by Miami magazine, hosted by Emeril Lagasse and Guy Fieri.

The Q will be at Delano, Beachside, 1685 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL, scheduled for Thursday, February 23, 2012 from 7:00pm - 10:00pm. Tickets are $300. Click here for more.

The Q promises to kick off the Festival’s next 10 years in the most glamorous way. To host our opening night, we’ve tapped two major food personalities, Emeril Lagasse and Guy Fieri. Emeril is known for his enthusiastic catchphrase ‘Bam!’ and his highly successful restaurants throughout the US, which specialize in showcasing the cuisine of New Orleans, especially the long history of flavored BBQ creations. He currently hosts the Cooking Channel show Emeril Live and the Food Network Show Essence of Emeril.

Guy Fieri’s charcoal cred includes his Tex Wasabi's restaurants in California, which specialize in bringing Southern BBQ to the West Coast. He also hosts the NBC game show Minute to Win It and Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. At the forefront of this new event is a collection of the best BBQ chefs from across the nation preparing their signature dishes on the grills and in the smokers. From chicken to ribs and brisket to pork buns, expect to run the gauntlet of overflowing flavors and sauces.

A limited number of lucky Q enthusiasts will have the opportunity to purchase VIP tickets ($400) and get a special 45-minute preview. Be the first to try the BBQ as doors are open for you from 6:15-7 PM and watch Emeril Lagasse and Guy Fieri meet and greet The Q chefs and taste what they’ve got cooking.

Barbecue from Guy Fieri's Tex Wasabi's will be there. And participating chefs include Michelle Bernstein, April Bloomfield, Scott Conant, Marc Forgione, Nadia G, Stephanie Izard, Al Roker, Aaron Sanchez and many more.

Tickets for The Q include admission to The Q After Dark. The Q After Dark is your chance to dance the night away while tasting the delicious cocktail concoctions mixed together with a full-bar of spirits from the Moët Hennessy USA portfolio. This is a new tradition of Festival late-night parties! Who knows what remaining fare may be floating around from The Q? Dance in the sand, cocktails in hand, under the stars, with Moët Hennessy bars, party late-night, lots of delight! Sold separately, tickets to Q After Dark are $100.
