According to restaurant officials, 2,000 passes were claimed in less than one minute in 2015. Those passes quickly showed up for resale on websites like eBay, and resold for prices far above the initial $100 price that the restaurant charges.

This year, a total of 21,000 passes will be made available to consumers. The passes are good from October 3rd through November 20th. The pass is only valid for the person whose name is printed on the card.
