Season Tickets at Next - How much?

Next, of course, being the Grant Achatz's restaurant in the West Loop.

If you know how much seasons tickets go for (and I know it depends on what hour and what night of the week one's ticket is for), then you probably already know the restaurant's M.O.

To recap, one simply doesn't make a reservation and choose things from a menu. (Perish the thought!) One instead acquires a ticket (at a substantial price and months in advance). At the appointed time, you get to go and enjoy a seventeen to thirty or so course of preselected dishes (a tasting menu). (If you knew what you wanted to eat in a restaurant, you'd be a celebrity chef, I guess.)

Every three months or so, Next changes its theme (Paris 1906, some Japanese thing, a hunting lodge) and a sequence of these over the course of the year gives rise to the season ticket concept.

So, what is the price range for a season ticket? How much would Saturday 8 pm run? What about Tuesday at 10:30 pm?
