Tickets Still Available at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival

The South Beach Wine and Food Festival kicks off next week, and if you're planning on going but haven't purchased your tickets yet, you're still in luck. While many events are sold out completely, a number of them still have tickets available.

In October, we detailed the top five SoBe W&F events worth going to. Not all of them are cheap, mind you -- the Daniel Boulud Tribute Dinner in particular topped five large ($520 a head, to be exact). Then again, it sold out -- what does that say about the fest's target audience? At least one of those events still has tickets.

See what's available after the jump.

The Prelude Dinner with hosts Michael Symon and local boy Peter Vauthy

going down at Red The Steakhouse. Tickets run $200 for a rooftop wine

soiree and menu featuring all Certified Angus beef. Starts at 7 p.m.

next Wednesday, February 24.

The Perrier-Jouet BubbleQ hosted by Emeril Lagase still has a

number of general admission tickets going for $350 a pop. The event

will section off the private beach at the Delano Hotel and fill it with

food from a cadre of chefs and restaurants. Local entrants include

Forge, Howie Kleinberg of Bulldog Barbecue, Steve Martorano, Gordon

Maybury of Lowes Miami Beach, Mark Militello of The Office, Allen

The Whole Foods Grand Tasting Village still has vacancies on

both Saturday and Sunday, February 27 and 28. The fest's signature

event features two ginormous tents chock full of food and wine from

local restaurants and international distributors, plus appearances by

Food Network Chefs like Guy Fieri and Rachel Ray. Tickets cost $212.50

per person for both 11 a.m. chow bells. Check out our recap of last year's Grand Tasting Village here.

The Barilla Interactive Lunch with Scott Conant is one of the

less expensive options at the fest at only $150 per person, and allows
