Rachael Ray Burger Bash Sold Out–Again

Those of you who were as excited as we were to hear the news that a second batch of the coveted tickets to Rachael Ray’s Burger Bash were going on sale over the weekend must be just as disappointed as we are to find out they are now all gone; and there won’t be anymore.

As one of the most highly anticipated evenings during South Beach’s annual Wine & Food Festival, the Amstel Light Burger Bash presented by Allen Brothers and hosted by Rachael Ray was completely sold out before news of a second batch of tickets even spread very far. Devoted followers of the event scooped up the final tickets which were sold on January 10 until 9 p.m.

The event will take place on the white-sand beach of The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach where some of the best burger makers get together to demonstrate their unique interpretations of a classic dish.

A fun new addition to the event is a special 45 minute preview reception for a limited number of Burger Bash enthusiasts who want to have access to the evening at 6:15 p.m. instead of 7 p.m. For $300, not including tax and service fee, you can watch “Rachael Ray meet and greet all Burger Bash chefs as she tours and tastes” prior to the official opening. A portion of the proceeds from the preview reception will benefit Rachael’s Yum-o! Foundation, a “nonprofit organization that empowers kinds and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking by teaching families to cook, feeding hungry kids, and funding cooking education and scholarships.”
