Iron Fork, Riverfront Times' annual tasting extravaganza, is Thursday, March 28 -- only three weeks away! This year's event will feature samples from more than 40 restaurants and food trucks, four local chefs battling on the main stage for the coveted Iron Fork crown and a heated competition between a dozen local mixologists.
And you, dear Gut Check reader, don't have to pay full price.
Right now you can purchase general-admission Iron Fork tickets, which have a face value of $35, for only $25. Click here to purchase Iron Fork tickets. When prompted, enter the code Gutcheck (no spaces).
Your $25 ticket includes unlimited samples from all the participating restaurants as well as three (3) full-size adult beverages.
Now, if you're feeling fancy, you can skip the discounted general-admission ticket and go right for the VIP package. Your $75 ticket gets you early access to the restaurant samples, unlimited drinks, access to a VIP lounge with a view of the chef competition, a gift bag and a chance to punch yours truly in the face.
Just kidding. General-admission ticket holders can also punch me in the face.
Act now, and in the weeks leading up to Iron Fork be sure to search #IronForkSTL on Twitter for the latest information.
