Good afternoon, Wienerfest lovers large and small! Today I come with great Wienerfest tidings. For this week only we’re offering a special early-bird rate on all general-admission tickets of $55 per person, a reduction from our regular $90 rate. That price includes all you can eat wieners, all you can drink beer and Titos vodka, special wieners from Jay Batlle and Michael Mahalchick and a ten dollar donation to Smack Mellon, an artist residency and exhibition program that suffered serious damage in Hurricane Sandy. This wiener bacchanal will take place Sunday, December 16th 3-7PM at Postmasters, so it’s time to mark your calendars.
