Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

The sixth annual New Times' Pairings event is just a little more than a month away.

The annual celebration of South Florida food and fine wine is coming to the Broward County Convention Center on Thursday, September 26. From 7 to 10 p.m., the best restaurants in South Florida will offer up their best bites for you to enjoy -- with each restaurant paired with a different fine wine.

Of course, as the saying goes, man does not live on wine alone. (That is how the saying goes, right?) That's why there's live music, craft beers, and cocktails at Pairings, too. General admission tickets are on sale now for only $40, which includes unlimited samplings of food, wine, specialty cocktails, craft beer, and live entertainment.

VIP tickets are $90 and include access to the party at 6 p.m. for an extra hour of frolicking and food and entry to the exclusive VIP lounge.

To show our readers how much we love you, Clean Plate Charlie has a pair of VIP tickets to give away. How do you win these tickets, valued at $180? Simply tell us in the comments field of this post your most ridiculous "wine snob" phrase.

Is it, "I detect subtle hints of fig and dirty feet in this Cabernet"? Or perhaps you prefer, "The mouthfeel of this wine reminds me of cottage cheese."

The most insanely, over-the-top snobby phrase will win the tickets. Please remember to log in to the comment system with a valid email address or Twitter handle in your post, so we can contact you if you win. We'll choose a winner on Friday afternoon and announce it Monday Morning.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
