Entry to this special event from 2-5 costs just an additional $10 or less (TBD) in addition to the $10 admission fee, gets you tastes of all the dishes, and gives you a shot to vote on your fave.  The winner gets some major bragging rights and gets to take home a cash prize.  Plus, all proceeds go right to The Mill River Collaborative and The Mayor’s Youth Employment Program, so your addiction to bacon can serve some altruistic value.  If you’re a Stamford restaurant or chef and would like a spot in the contest, there just might be a spot for you.  Call up Shelly Kapitulik at (203) 898-1501 or e-mail her at shelley@splashpr.us.
