Dear Guinea Pigs:
We should have news on an upcoming Cobaya dinner very shortly, but we have some more exciting news as well.
You may have already seen that we will be repeating our collaboration with South Beach Wine & Food Festival next year for another Cobaya / SoBe dinner. It's already been posted on the SoBeFest.com website here: (If you want to see what last year was like, check out this Cobaya SOBEWFF flickr set.)
We've got another great line-up this time: Andrew Zimmern will be coming back, and we'll have Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook from Animal, Son of a Gun and Trois Mec in LA, Carlo Mirarchi from Roberta's and Blanca in NY, and Alex Chang of Miami's Vagabond gets to play host. The dinner will be on Thursday February 25, 2016.
Though tickets do not officially go on sale until next month, we're able to get Cobaya members the chance to book your seats now. Even better: book now and you can get them for $225; when SoBe puts them on sale, they will be priced at $250.
The process is a little different from our usual events. To get in on Cobaya SoBe 2016, you will need to send a ticket form in or call SOBEWFF to book. To get the form or the phone number, please send an email to the usual place (cobayamiami [at] gmail [dot] com). Also different: This event will also be first come first served, with no limits on the number of seats, so move fast.
Please note: You have to return the form no later than October 1, 2015, because tickets will be released to the general public shortly after that date. Our dinner was one of the first SOBEWFF events to sell out last year, in a matter of hours, and we expect spots to go fast.
Hope to see you there!
