Just in time for Thirsty Thursday, I have an offer you shouldn't refuse! Get Real NY is hosting the Belgian Beer Festival on July 8th and 9th, and if you enter discount code 'skinnypig', you will receive $20 off your ticket to any session, any day. HOLLER. You know you love me. But I digress…
The food: Petite Abeille has signed on to be the lead restaurant participant for this glorious event, serving up their signature mussels, Belgian waffles, pommes frites and more. Also getting down with some Belgian food action is Cafe D'Alsace and Luke's Lobster. YUM. And what would a Belgian festival be without Belgian chocolate?? A festival I wouldn't endorse, that's for damn sure. Fortunately, Danny Macroons, Moho Cocoa, and Roni-Sue Chocolates will all be there. Thank god.
Each $85 ticket ($65 for Skinny Pig readers!) gets you a souvenir glass, unlimited tasting pours, a beer guide, unlimited food sampling, live music, and tasting panels. The $115 VIP ticket ($95 for Skinny Pig readers!) gets you all of the same in addition to one-hour early access to the festival and admission to a special VIP tasting room featuring several rare and hard to find beers.
I have been to a couple of Get Real's events before, and I can say that not only is it a great lineup of food and drink, but they never oversell their tickets so the crowds are kept to a minimum. In other words (mine), going back for seconds has never been easier.
Remember to use discount code 'skinnypig' for $20 off! Yay.
