No, your eyes aren't fooling you (it isn't Sandra Lee's yearbook photo), 80s rock legend Vince Neil of MÖTLEY CRÜE will be making two appearances at the 2007 Food Network Wine & Food Festival!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blabbermouth.net tells us that:
On Sunday, February 25 at 2pm, Neil himself will preside over the bar along with Francesco Lafranconi, founder and director of Southern Wine & Spirits of Nevada's Academy of Spirits in the step by step concoction of everybody's favorite frozen cocktail.Neil will initiate margarita lovers in the art of making the perfect "Rita", blended with his own Tres Rios tequila, the outcome of a dedicated search by Neil for the purest 100% agave nectar, which he found flourishing at the juncture of three rivers in Mexico.
Later that afternoon at the Publix Grand Tasting Village, Neil will open the Delta Live Auction tailored to the ultimate Vince Neil fan. Up for bids is one case of signed bottles of Vince Neil's Tres Rios Tequila, two first class tickets on Delta Airlines to Las Vegas, a "sweet" suite at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas with all accommodations for two, a personal invitation from Vince to have drinks with him in person at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, dinner at the RIO at Café Martorano and a Vince Neil personally autographed guitar. Bidding begins online at www.sobeauction.cmarket.com and carries over to the Delta Live Auction on Sunday, February 25.
This festival is just getting better and better. Tickets are going fast, so be sure to try and make it down to South Beach if you can.
