Win a Pair of VIP Tickets to New Times' Pairings: Name Your Favorite Celebrity Pairing to Win

The sixth annual New Times' Pairings 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 serve their best dishes, each paired with a different fine wine.

Besides great food and wine pairings from hotspots like Tap 42, 3030 Ocean, Market 17, and Steak 954, there's live music, craft beers, and cocktails for your eating and drinking enjoyment. In fact, to make this year bigger and better, we've added an entire beer garden.

You can always purchase your tickets, of course. But, you know... It's Friday and we're in a good mood here, so we figured we'd give a pair of VIP tickets away. Want them? Here's how:

Just tell us your absolute favorite "pair" and why you chose them. The pair could be real or fictional. Animal or Human (or a combo). We don't care -- just make us laugh. Here are some examples:

  • Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner
  • Abbot and Costello
  • Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson
  • Tarzan and Cheetah

OK! Just post your favorite pair as a "comment" to this blog. In order to qualify, you must register with a valid email or leave your Twitter handle in your comment (so we can notify you if you win). We'll announce a winner Tuesday morning.

General admission tickets are on sale now for only $45, which includes unlimited samplings of food, wine, specialty cocktails, craft beer, and live entertainment. VIP tickets are $80 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. Purchase tickets at now, because this event sells out and VIP access is limited.
