2nd Annual Mac & Cheese Throwdown STL was a sell-out event sending people into food coma!
Thank you all for joining us for the 2nd Annual Mac & Cheese Throwdown STL on Saturday, March 10 to celebrate the greatest couple of all time -- carbohydrates and cheese -- at the Moto Museum and Triumph Grill. The Mac and Cheese Throwdown was a big hit, with tickets selling out more than two weeks in advance. Attendees lined up around the block to get in, eager to taste-test the unlimited mac and cheese samples. But more was on offer than just gooey goodness: with great tunes by DJ Mahf, bottomless craft cocktails and plenty of Schlafly beer flowing, we thought the party might go all night. Congratulations to Salt + Smoke: the barbecue juggernaut, which now has two locations, won the coveted People's Choice Award this year. Runner-ups Capitalist Pig and BEAST Craft BBQ also showed they had the right stuff.
Don't miss the next great RFT event - Iron Fork on Wednesday, May 2 at City Museum. Tickets on sale now.
2018 People's Choice Winner: Salt + Smoke
Submissions were received and the top 5 were selected for this year's new STL Amateur MacMaster competition. Five amateur chefs went head-to-head on Thursday, March 1 at Mak's Pub & Grub and one winner emerged!
Congrats to Korbin!
