Who doesn’t love mac and cheese? Follow-up question: If you don’t, what’s wrong with you?
Since none of us can get enough of this creamy, cheesy nectar of the gods, there’s no shortage of excitement in the air at the announcement of Capital City Mac Fest in June, featuring a mac and cheese showdown of more than a dozen chefs and vendors.
“These are all very different cooks,” Borghardt says, “so it may not be your grandmother’s mac and cheese. Everyone’s going to put their own spin on it.”
Capital City Mac Fest won’t go down until June 10, but Geaux Rouge will host a ticket release party with brews and live music at Curbside Burgers next Thursday to kick off ticket sales. Full price tickets go for $35, but the first 150 tickets sold at the party will be discounted at $25. Since tickets are limited for the fest, the party offers a chance to guarantee your spot ahead of time. Bonus: Every ticket buyer gets a mac and cheese treat from Curbside.
A portion of proceeds from the party will go to local social issues podcast altBR to help fund a north Baton Rouge/south Baton Rouge unity event the team is planning for later this year.
The party starts at 7 p.m. next Thursday, April 6, at Curbside Burgers. Mac fans, you know what to do.
