If you've got $225 per person to throw down, consider The Shikany Art Interactive Dinner Series, 7:45 p.m. Saturday, June 18 at the Miami Art Space, a 10-course, 10-beverage "evening of culinary adventures, visual stimulation and new experiences."
Named after Chef Michael Shikany, formerly of Ortanique, La Cofradia and Sushi Samba, the event is only open to members who have to apply to get in. At $225pp, some would say it's more like a Chicanery Dinner Series (sorry, we couldn't resist), but then there are those rare breeds who love filling out applications in order to eat. [EaterWire]
