The Greenwich Wine + Food Festival is looking for the best sandwiches from Fairfield and Westchester Counties . . . and they need your help. If you’re a big fan of a sandwich from a restaurant, deli, or cafe or work at a restaurant, reach out to Brookeknetzger@ungerpublishing.com or call (203) 588-1363.
We already told you to save the date, so it’s about that time to get your tickets for the 2015 CT Chefs Challenge! The competition goes down on Friday, September 18, starting at 7 pm at the Lincoln Culinary Institute in Shelton. This year you have two options for tix, too: GA for $50 which includes free beer/wine, apps, food buffet, coffee, and dessert or the Tasting Ticket for $100 which also includes a reserved seat at a shared table, and a tasting dish from the chefs for the table to share. Also included is the cocktail hour where you’ll have the chance to drink, try some apps, meet some new friends, and learn about The Optimus Foundation who are the benefactors of this incredible event.
Now, here are some of the great things to look forward to:
A common duck.
An ornery chihuahua.
An average lamp.
A dainty bowling ball.
A mason jar of The Smoke & Bones BBQ Sundae Challenge.
What do all of these seemingly random things have in common? Yup, they all weigh six pounds. Six pounds? Six pounds!
While that might not seem like much when you’re carrying your chihuahua in your purse down the red carpet or throwing strike after strike down the lanes, that’s a helluva lot to shove into your face. But, at least it’s not a six pound duck or lamp that you’re eating…we’re talking ’bout the highly sought after BBQ of Smoke & Bones BBQ of Derby, CT.
