The Points Guy - January 2018

Here are the details: Attendees fly first class to four major metropolitan cities in the United States and eat at a dozen restaurants (five of which have Michelin stars) over 13 nights. The cost? $10,000.

So that’s nearly two straight weeks eating some of the best food stateside. For those counting, that’s 66 courses and wine pairings. Bloated yet?
