Tickets for this year’s greatest foodie show on earth, or at least in Healdsburg, are about to go on sale.

Single Thread restaurant, the much-anticipated haute farm-to-table dining experience that’s been called the biggest restaurant opening of 2016, will open ticket sales on October 21, 2016. The restaurant is expected to open in November, and tickets will be available for all of 2017.

Don’t want to wait? Folks who sign up for the Single Thread newsletter by October 14 will get a one week head start on weeknight reservations as well as first dibs on a special overnight package at the Healdsburg property. The overnight includes dinner and breakfast for two.

Why tickets? The restaurant is following a trend of restaurants like SF’s Lazy Bear and Saison requiring pre-paid dining experiences that eliminate any onsite cash exchange and allow the restaurant create a highly bespoke experience for diners. It also means, however, that you won’t be sitting on the phone for hours trying to get through to the restaurant.
