Bobby Flay And Nacho Just Invited Fans To A Virtual Cocktail Party

Culinary personality Bobby Flay is hosting a cocktail party, albeit virtually, along with his Maine Coon Cat, Nacho Flay – and you are invited. The co-host of the "Always Hungry" podcast took to Instagram to formally invite all his followers to join him and his beloved furry friend sidekick to the event. As Flay wrote, "@nachoflay is so ready for December holidays so [we] decided to plan a virtual cocktail party ... December 15 at 8 p.m. ET on the @madebynacho Instagram Live!"

We are feeling the festive feline vibes and it seems apropos that Flay would host this soiree with his favorite buddy. According to CBS News, Flay has always had a special relationship with cats. The celebrity chef told the outlet, "From the time I was born, there were always cats in my house. My mom was, and still is, obsessed with them. As an only child, they were as close to my brothers as I had." 

And Nacho is definitely a huge part of Flay's life now as the chef revealed in the article that the two are inseparable: "Nacho plays fetch, he opens every door in my house, he follows me from room to room, and is never out of ear shot. And neither am I!" To see their bond up close and personal, you'll definitely want to get in on this very Flay feline fete, especially if you are one of the first 30 to register, which offers an extra special benefit.

Of course, like most cats, Nacho is not going to be outdone by daddy Flay. The gentle giant and beautiful orange-and-white cat took to his own Instagram account to 'invite' his fans, too: "Dust off your fanciest collar and make sure your human is presentable because I'm having a party on Instagram Live! That's right — your virtual presence is requested for my first annual A Very Flay Holiday!" 

The post also promises some "catinis and other fluffy-yet-festive surprises!" And then the post proverbially raises a little catnip in front of would-be party goers, sharing, "We'll even answer your most urgent holiday cooking and entertaining questions!" Not only that, but the first 30 registrants will get "A Very Flay gift box" put together by none other than Nacho. A little swag goes a long way — and Nacho definitely knows how to entice his invitees. Simply register at the link in Flay's bio on Instagram to sign up for this one-of-a-kind event.

With over 8,000 likes between both Bobby Flay and Nacho Flay's accounts as of publication, fans are definitely excited. One of Nacho's followers wrote, "This is ridiculously adorable, how can we not attend?" While another responded with, "Can't wait! Registered! My kitty and I will be there!" Honestly, we couldn't agree more and are wondering if Anne Burrell and her cat will stop by this very "Catmas" celebration because it is going to be lit.
