A number of local restaurants participate – many of which I can recommend. Included are chefs from Little Moir’s Food Shack and Leftover’s Café, Imoto, Coolinary Café, Guanabana’s, Buonasera, La Scaletta, Spiro’s Taverna, Sharkbite Grille, PGA National’s Ironwood Grill, Talay Thai, Embassy Suite’s Verdea, Schooner, Jupiter Island Grill, Pita Grille and The Bistro. Chef Lindsay Autry of Top Chef will also be here to serve her dishes and wine notables such as Virginia Philip, Mariya Kovecheva, and Matt from the Tequesta Brewing Co. will pour drinks.
Get your tickets online to save $5. Tickets are $100 for VIP Seating (a first this year); $35 online and $40 at the gate (kids are $15) – with a limited amount available.
Last year, they sold out quickly and a lot of people turned away at the gate, so keep it in mind if you’re going. Parking is free in the garage – but also is limited; park on the northeast side of the bridge and walk over if you want to avoid the traffic tangle.
The ticket money benefits the Friends of Jupiter Beach – who maintain clean beaches and work to keep it dog-friendly, as well.
