Update x3: The new batch of tickets has now also sold out. Thanks for all the interest!

Update update: New tickets have been released!

Update: The event is currently sold out! But we've arranged for more spots and we'll release them Monday at noon.

Some restaurants have a special table in the kitchen where you can watch the chefs prepare your meal, and maybe even ask a question or two. So why not have a whole party there?

AOA is going to do just that.

New World Catering has a new space on Delaware Avenue with a bar and an open kitchen, and on Thursday, December 4 AOA is hosting a holiday cocktail party there with New World chef, author, and Chopped champ Ric Orlando.

We'll have food, signature cocktails, craft beers and locally-sourced wines. Here's a peek at the menu and how to get tickets.

We'd love to see you there.

And Its Gone!

Jeez, that sold out fast.

Great idea, AOA!

This would be a deal at 2x the price. Not surprised it sold out in record time!

Fantastic idea, unfortunately already sold out. If anyone can't make it, please let me buy your tickets from you!

Tickets sold out already!
