We have 500 each of the ones you need to collect from Southern Comfort, and will make surprise announcements during the time slot when they’re coming out, so be ready!

  • You can stay in one of the bars during a time slot, or jump to all of them… but if you want all the food samples, you have to visit all those bars.
