Grilled cheese is no laughing matter, and it's time we had another contest to determine which grilled cheese rules all. Dairy-and-butter-and-bread fans will want to keep April 23 and 24 free, because that's when the Big Cheesy returns.
Organizers say they've "researched five of the most talked-about cheese wizzes from around the city and invited them to compete for the title, with you as the judge." The competitors are reigning winner Artisanal plus Campbell Cheese & Grocery, Depanneur, Randolph Beer and The Wheelhouse.
A $30 ticket will give you an hour to try all the varieties, two Goose Island drafts and a vote for your favorite. two ice-cold Goose Island drafts. Plus, 5% of the profits will go to the Food Bank For New York City.
The Big Cheesy will be held at 168 Bowery; there are slots from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24.
