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 ticketfly.com now, because this event sells out and VIP access is limited.

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.
