FrontRunners: Above-Par Pairings

<< Back to Robb Report, April 2009

The secret is out—sort of. A previously unadvertised Founders’ Dinner is included among the 53 activities listed on the itinerary for the Second Annual Pebble Beach Food & Wine event (www.pebblebeachfoodandwine.com). But to learn the dinner’s location, you have to acquire one of only 22 available tickets, priced at $3,000 apiece. The dinner, to be held on Wednesday, April 15, will include nine courses prepared by Thomas Keller and Daniel Humm. (Each guest is responsible for bringing one magnum of wine.) Three resorts along Pebble Beach’s famed 17-Mile Drive will host the festival’s various other events from April 16 through 19. Ticket prices range from $165 for a single event to $4,750 for a four-day VIP package.
