We are taking the safety and health of our attendees, vendors, sponsors and community-at-large very seriously. We are now making plans and are hopeful for a rescheduled date in November 2020. We remain excited to host you and will get back to you as soon as possible with the specific details. All previously purchased tickets will be honored during the rescheduled dates this fall or you may choose to wait until our 2021 or 2022 events, which will be announced at a later date. We will post updated information here as plans finalize. In the meantime, we urge our local audience to support our restaurants, hotels and vendors affected by this situation, as well as our beneficiaries for the 2020 event—New Orleans Culinary & Hospitality Institute (NOCHI) and Café Reconcile.Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to toasting with you soon.
