going to see bobby flay? is he cooking?

alkapal | Sep 12, 2008 04:55 AM

when i found out bobby flay was going to be here in d.c. in november for an appearance/demo/whatever at the metropolitan cooking and entertaining show, i thought, "hey, let's go."

then......i looked up ticket prices (yes, tickets....this ain't yo' momma's book signing at borders). they are around $ 200-220 each.
these are at the convention center.

this has an expensive event with him on the same dates at the washington renaissance hotel (!?!):
i'm surprised these sites are so expensive without any information -- or incorrect info.

edit: was finally able to get through to the metrocooking (official) website.
the flay tickets are $50-$75 for an appearance at the celebrity theatre (and includes general admission).

the variance in the price is quite shocking ($50 official vs. $200 "other ticket sites").

now that i've confused you (ride along with me!), i think the bottom line is: flay is appearing at the convention center -- not cooking, official tickets are available (as i'm typing). from metrocooking for $50-$75.

i'm debating whether the overall event is worth it (and whether i want to pay extra to see a celeb that i see a lot on tv). have you been in the past? will you go again?
