For the 11th year in a row, Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit, presented by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Chase Sapphire and Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits of Nevada, takes over Las Vegas. As tradition, the event kicked off with a saber off, this time bringing chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger of Border Grill fame to ceremoniously saber a bottle of Perrier-Jouët champagne at The Vortex at The Linq. The “Too Hot Tamales” are the first female chefs to lead the saber off and, to recognize their support, they were given personal sabers to do the honors during the inaugural event.

Frank Pellegrino Jr., Greg Sherry, Guy Savoy, Lorena Garcia, Rick Moonen, Scott Conant and Shawn McClain were just some of the chefs and restaurateurs who joined in the festivities to kick off the weekend of wine, cocktails and meals at Caesars Palace, The Cromwell, Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, MGM Resorts International’s The Park, the Venetian and the Palazzo.

Believe it or not, some tickets are still available at vegasuncorkd.com.

This year, favorites Alain Ducasse, Bobby Flay, Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro, Giada De Laurentiis, Gordon Ramsay, José Andrés, Julian Serrano, Michael Mina, Nobu Matsuhisa, Tom Colicchio, Charlie Palmer and Wolfgang Puck all make an appearance.

Guests can take in a Picnic in The Park at MGM Resorts International’s newest outdoor dining and entertainment district, and go on a mixology journey with Mariena Mercer at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. To sample a bit of everything, guests can still purchase tickets to perennial favorite The Grand Tasting at Caesars Palace and indulge in Sweet Escape: An Evening of Buddy, Beignets, Bonbons & Booze on The Palazzo Pool Deck.
