MANNA’s Annual Guac-Off Returns for Round 3

MANNA's 3rd Annual Guac-Off

MANNA’s 3rd Annual Guac-Off

If mashed avocado is your thing (yet to meet any naysayers there), join MANNA in their third annual Gauc-Off this Thursday, May 21st. The event runs 6 PM – 9PM at Morgan’s Pier, where a ticket snags you unlimited guacamole tastings and a free beer to wash it down. Signature margaritas, alongside a full cash bar, will also be available.

Competing this year is Top Chef Season 11 Winner Nick Elmi, of Laurel and Morgan’s Pier. He’ll be going up against the guacamole-connoisseurs from Bainbridge Barrel Street HouseCafe Ynez, Cantina Dos Segundos, Guerrilla Ultima BBQ, La Calaca Feliz,  Los Camaradas, Mad Mex University City, Mas Mexicali Cantina (West Chester), Whole Foods South Street, William Street Common, and Xochitl.

Tasters will cast their vote alongside guest judges Keith Lucas (MANNA’s Executive Chef), Fox 29’s Jennaphr Frederick, BEN FM’s Marilyn Russell, Ian Hussey of the Pennsylvania Ballet, and MANNA’s Junior Guac Master, 10 year-old Allison Flam. Alongside ticket holders votes, they will crown a Guac Master by the evening’s end.

Tickets are $30 ($15 for kids) and can be purchased online.
