LUCKYRICE NYC 2013 is an Asian food festival that will run April 29 to May 5. The weeklong festival celebrates Asian culinary culture with grand tastings and dinner events around the city.
How it works is that attendees have to purchase individual tickets for each event. Most of the dinners are $88 and includes dinner and drinks. Most of the cocktail events are $50 and includes unlimited cocktails. Tickets are already starting to sell out.
Now in its fourth year, LUCKYRICE originated in New York but has since expanded to organizing festivals in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Miami.
