Food-and-wine festivals allow people to taste scores of flavors in one day, a feat previously attainable only by cramming five frozen dinners and a variety pack of juice boxes into a blender. Savor expanding horizons with this GrouponLive deal to the Inaugural Burger, Beer, and Balls Bash presented by the Taste of Brickell Food & Wine Festival on Saturday, August 4, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. rain or shine. For $50, you get one VIP ticket (a $100 value), which includes:
- Early entry to the festival at 4 p.m.
- $30 in food and beverage tickets to use at more than 30 onsite restaurants
- Unlimited beer samples
- Bracelet for exclusive access to the VIP lounge

Beside the crystalline waters of Biscayne Bay, the Inaugural Burger, Beer, and Balls Bash corrals the celebrated morsels of more than 20 area eateries to mingle freely with live music, craft beer, and handpicked wines. Sophisticated palates drag their owners on a circuit of restaurants, where they'll sample each chef's unique spin on burgers and meatballs and swill more than 40 different frosty brews, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Club of Miami. Afterward, attendees can cast their ballots for their favorite bites, before lending their ears to live Motown and funk music from Pocket Change and enjoying appearances from the Miami Marlins. At 7 p.m., an eating contest sponsored by Burger and Beer Joint pits contestants against one another as they attempt to devour the Motherburger: a 10-pound Angus-beef patty topped with lettuce, tomato, and science fair ribbons Mom saved from the third grade.
