    For those of you with Chase Sapphire (Preferred or Reserve), how did the procurement of tickets go? Did you obtain early access to them because of the card? Were you able to use points to pay for the tickets/was the conversion a decent value? I had a Preferred and now have Reserve, but would love to potentially go next year - without spending a small fortune on purchasing the tickets.

    Yes, there are events available ONLY if you're a Sapphire card holder. So you get tickets if you buy with your Sapphire.

    @dvandentop oh I've got pictures. And thoughts.

    Lunch Like a Spaniard at Jaleo. $225. I don't regret doing this one, but wouldn't do it again. I think for some events you have to go in with a plan of attack and be assertive to get the most of it and I was a little too relaxed. I will never eat uni again. Jose Andres was very cool and Adam Rapoport (editor in chief of Bon Appétit) was fantastic.

    @dvandentop Mover and Shakers Mixology Tour at Cosmo. $145 (I think). I loved this. It was less crowded (but sold out). Started at Rose Rabbit Lie for drinks and snacks, then a drink at Vesper, drinks and snacks at Clique, then drinks and cupcakes at Chandelier 1.5. Mariena Mercer, the property mixologist at Cosmo lead the tour and she offered to give her email out if people wanted to ask her for the drink recipes. She sat and talked with everyone. Event was super organized. They let us out walk through all of RRL. I think my favorite drink was at Vesper-the Paradigm Shift.

    I kind of wish I had done Picnic in the Park. I'm looking forward to hearing @jenblase's thoughts on the Grand Tasting.

    Overheard people talking about the brunch at Giada's-they had to leave after the second course of four because it was running so behind but they had other events to get to.

    Beautiful pictures. Thanks very much for sharing them. Every year I say I want to go to this and then work usually gets in the way. Maybe next year.

    This year's tickets have gone on sale. This morning or maybe last night. I'm annoyed because I never got an email, and some events are sold out already. And I just checked the website yesterday morning and it wasn't live yet! Oh well.

    I'm getting the (regular) Grand Tasting ticket, not sure what else yet. The extra $90 for 30 minutes of early access does not seem worth it. Last year they had a special cardholder's event and a VIP seating area, but Chase Sapphire it seems is no longer a partner. My friend Heather is coming with me and it will be my DIA2 trip, so we're staying at Caesars.

    Anyone else coming that weekend and going to any events? @claired67?

    I think I saw the announcement on Twitter when everything went on sale @jenblase -2 days ago. I don’t think I’m going to be in Vegas in May so I’m out. I think.

    I did look to see if the Voltaggio brothers were scheduled to be at an event just in case I needed to make some adjustments to my work schedule but they are not.

    I think the Picnic in the Park sounds fun. Or one of the brunch ones.

    $90 for the extra 30 minutes is steep. You’d have to know where the chef you wanted to see was at and just haul ass as soon as they let you in to make it worthwhile.

    DAMN IT JEN!!!

    I can’t go in May, but now I really really really want to go to Picnic in the Park.

    *sigh* 2019.

    Darn, I was really hoping you’d be there that weekend!

    And H and I are thinking about the Picnic too, but worried it might be too similar to the grand tasting?

    The Top Shelf option at the Grand Tasting is ridiculous.

    The newish event at the new Michael Mina restaurant sounds nice though. Hopefully next year I plan better.
