Museum of Glass Slider Cook-Off

This Saturday is the 2nd Annual Museum of Glass Slider Cook-Off.  If you’re looking for something both fun and tasty to do this weekend, this is the event for you. Nine local restaurants are competing for the title of best slider…and I get to be a judge! I’m very excited for the competition. It’s a great excuse to go to the Museum of Glass, and it should be a great time, with music by the Daryl & the Diptones and live glass blowing by artist John Miller.

Still on the fence about going? Check out my sneak preview in the Weekly Volcano. Participating restaurants include Asado, Bite Restaurant and Bar, Boathouse 19, Brix 25, Dirty Oscar’s Annex, Marrow Kitchen and Bar, Maxwell’s, Social Bar and Grill and Art House Cafe.

If you’re going to the event, come say hi!
