Mac Throwdown and Bartender Showdown for the Hope Center at Pullen

October 1, 2016

Are you ready for a Throwdown? A mac & cheese throwdown just for its own sake sounds great, but a mac & cheese Throwdown for charity? Even better. Toss in a bartender competition, and it just can’t be missed! The can’t miss Mac & Cheese Throwdown will include some of Raleigh’s best chefs and bartenders, a great local band (The Magic Pipers), and a few interesting “restaurant/bar experiences” for raffle prizes. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Hope Center at Pullen, whose excellent staff and volunteers work to support Wake County kids aging out of foster care to transition successfully into adulthood. General admission tickets are $45 (free for kids under 10 years old) and include unlimited samples of the competition MACs, one drink ticket good for one competition cocktail (for guests 21 years and over), ten “voting” tokens to choose your favorite MACs and/or bartenders, an all you can eat salad and dessert bar and bottomless iced tea and free photo booth access all night. There are also 20 early admission VIP tickets for $95 each, which include all of the perks of a general admission ticket plus an event t-shirt and a 5pm admission to avoid the lines. Finally, 4 judges seats are reserved at the bar competition for $145 each. With these tickets you get all of the privileges of a VIP ticket PLUS front row seating at the bar and the opportunity to sample all of the competition drinks. You can purchase your tickets (and more voting tokens and event t-shirts) online or in the Relish market.
