Congrats to #33, Allie!
If you like grilled cheese, you’ll love one of my favorite food events: The Big Cheesy.
Held next weekend, The Big Cheesy features grilled cheese from 5 different shops, with guests voting for their favorite grilled cheese. Featured shops include Artisanal (the reigning champ), Campbell Cheese & Grocery and Depanneur (both artisanal grocers from Williamsburg, Brooklyn), salumeria Ends Meat, and rustic sandwich shop The Wheelhouse. You’ll wash the grilled cheese down with 32 oz of beer, thanks to Goose Island.
The Big Cheesy is April 23 + 24 at Openhouse on Mulberry and Kenmare. Tickets are $30 and you’ll get one hour to sample the grilled cheese, so pick your time slot wisely (11am – 7pm) and make sure to show up hungry.
And, we’re giving one lucky winner a pair of tickets. To win, comment on this post with your favorite grilled cheese sandwich (homemade or from a restaurant!) by 11:59pm Monday night (4/18). Note I have to approve comments, so it may not appear immediately. Good luck!
