Who Will Be The Mac Daddy?
The Mac & Cheese Throwdown 2014 Gets Melty, December 14
Tickets Include Exclusive Post-Throwdown Performance by Comedian Ben Gleib
The Mac and Cheese Throwdown returns this winter to the House of Comedy located at 5350 East High Street (Formerly City North), Sunday, December 14 at 4:00 p.m.
Tickets for this incredibly popular cheese-fest are on sale at: http://girlmeetsfork.com/events/mac-cheese-throwdown-2014/
Tickets are $22 each and include admission and a ridiculous amount of mac and cheese and a ticket to see Ben Gleib from Chelsea Lately perform after the throwdown at House of Comedy.
This event is open to mac and cheese lovers 21-years of age and older only and tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis.
The brainchild of Kirti Dwivedi of Diya Marketing and Susie Timm of Girl Meets Fork Marketing & Media, the Mac & Cheese Throwdown has sold out for the past 5 years and the organizers do not expect anything different this year.
“I get e-mails to my website all year-long asking when the next throwdown is happening,” said Timm. “We are delighted to bring this cheesy goodness to the masses and honored by how beloved this event has become.”
The preliminary participating Chefs and/or Restaurants include:
Chef Michael O’Dowd, Urban Vine
Chef Mel Mecinas, Talavera
Chef Sadhana Raj, 24 Carrots
Chef John Cruz, Social Box Neighborhood Eatery
Chef Richard Garcia, Café ZuZu
Chef Stephen K. Eldridge, Pink Pony
Chef John Collura, Cibo e Vino
Comedian Rick Bronson, House of Comedy
Several more participating chefs will be announced in coming day as up to 12 restaurants will participate in this battle of the mac. A panel of three non-professional judges will blind judge the competition using a set of seriously cheesy criteria thus crowning a winner. Event attendees can purchase $1 “People’s Choice” tickets and stuff the ballot box of their favorite chef. All proceeds from the People’s Choice contest will be donated to a Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation.
