As you glide through the stunning interior of Orchestra Hall, stop and sample everything from beefy burgers and ice cream to vegan butchery and donuts. Participating restaurants include the Kenwood, Third Bird, Nightingale, Sweet Science Ice Cream, the Herbivorous Butcher, Firebox Deli, Erte, Red Cow, Minnesalsa, Glam Doll Donuts, and Pizza Luce.

Then take a break from the chow and grab a specialty cocktail from Vikre Distillery (or a frosty craft beer or a St. Croix Summer Red) from the bar.

And if you're VIP, you'll get all this plus early entry at 6 p.m., complimentary drinks until 7 p.m., specialty cocktail samples by Vikre & Bittercube, exclusive samples from Coup d'Etat, oysters by Sea Salt, and a very sweet swag bag.

The party runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Follow the festivities across the street to the Dakota, where the Official Best Of After Party will continue until 1 a.m. Work night, shmork night.

Tickets are on sale now. General admission is $25, and VIP is $55. Rock on, party people.
