    The Ernest Hemingway one looks fun:
    Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival: February 24-27, 2011


    I think the most popular one where everyone gets trashed under the white tent on the beach is sold out.

    I've looked at tickets but everything seems so insanely expensive, that no. I think the only year events weren't so stupidly priced were the first couple of years.

    Has anyone gone that can tell me that the Bubble-Q or whatever it is is worth $500 per person?

    I filled out the forms to receive press passes before the expiration date, but they haven't gotten back to me yet, even though they were supposed to do so last Friday.

    So I'm hoping I get to write about the actual festival instead of the fact that they refused to give us press passes.

    This may be another formerly-fun event that's going South Beach "exclusive". In previous years I've received press releases but nothing this year. Guess they don't need the publicity anymore...

    The beach is already covered in the HUGE event tents that take up half the beach.

    Word on the street is that it was impossible to get press passes ... I didn't bother. However, I'm going because I have a special friend who hooked me up and no it's not that I slept with Tony Bourdain. I'm covering some random events though. Thankfully I'll do the tent thing on trade day so it won't be one hot mess with a bazillion people.

    Oh and by the way, even those legit food bloggers who got press passes didn't get carte blanche. It was all very limited.
