Winner of the VIP Pairings Passes: Your Best Pairings

Youse guys are really funny, you know that?

When we asked you to name your favorite pairing -- be it human couple, fictional characters, or...whatever...we weren't sure what we were going to get. After all, our examples were kind of lame. (Tarzan and Cheetah?)

But leave it to the smartest people on our planet to come up with some really good pairings. So good, in fact, that we wanted to share our top five favorites, counting down to the winning answer. The winner, of course, gets a pair of VIP tickets to New Times Pairings at the Broward Country Convention Center on Thursday, September 26 from 7 to 10 p.m.

If you didn't win this time around, advance purchase 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 wine, food and entry to the exclusive VIP lounge. Purchase tickets at ticketfly.com now, because this event sells out and VIP access is limited.

Here are the best pairings you submitted:

5. Macaulay Culkin and Heroin... because, well, he loves her soo much.

-Walter Larzik

Awww. Clean Plate Charlie is a sucker for all kinds of love.

4. Shaggy and Scooby Dooby Dooby Dooooooooooooooo

-Thumby

Take one classic friendship. Add ghosts and the search for snacks and you've got pairings gold.
