Nicole and Sean will begin to serve the crowd at 1am. The theme of the night is Hot Stock, it’s that time of the year. You will have the opportunity to buy super hot delicious soup from both chefs until 2am. The proceeds are going to Kassidy’s Army, chosen by Chef Sean Griffin as the charity. The money raised will go directly to Kassidy’s family. At 1:30 am the main brawl begins, both chefs will remove themselves from their given food truck for the unveiling of ingredients. 30 minutes will be given to create 5 portions of one dish for the judges, the best dish wins. Their dishes are judged on a point system by the judges, 5 points for Taste, Use of Ingredients and Appearance for a total of 15 points.. Chef Mike Minor of Border Grill is returning as one of the three judges along side of Donna Rocker.
5 Food Trucks will be serving at the TRUCK STOP from 10-2:30am, LOLA D’S KITCHEN, QUALITY FOOD SERVICE, ROAMIN DOUGH,JUST ROLLIN, ENGINE 1 PIZZA AND BAKE MY DAY.
Before and during the BOH BRAWL you can express your love of chile by being a part of the judging for the CHILI COOK OFF!!! My buddy Brad will be up against Lola D’s Kitchen and the Owner of Insert Coins, Chris LaPorte. The chile will be sold from Quality Food Service, Roaming Dough and Lola D’s Kitchen, look for the special menus. Once you’ve purchased a bowl of chile you will have the opportunity be a judge. I’m not sure what the winner of the CHILE OFF is going to receive but bragging rights seems to go a long way.
Now for the COCK FIGHT, Jr Starkus of RM Seafood is returning for his second battle after taking the first win against Fernie Davidson. Big thanks go out to David Herlong for assisting with bar set up and producing the product from Diageo. No animals were injured during this event. Just sayin. November 17th JR Starkus will be up against a neighborhood favorite from The Downtown Cocktail Room, Kevin Gorham. The DCR is located downtown on Las Vegas Blvd and E. Fremont. If you have not been to DCR, I’ll give you a tip, push on the right side of the door to enter.
The COCK FIGHT will begin between 1:30-2am, we can decide that night.
Todd Harrington’s and Team Central will be returning with the PBR trophy. It will be hard to beat what Brian Howard added but I know Todd is creative. I’ll see you on Saturday.
