You Be the Judge
Sunday, November 22, 2009
Over 20 area restaurants will be competing in "Chowdafest" this weekend in Westport to benefit The CT Food Bank. It's a chowder and soup competition among restaurants from Stamford to Milford, where YOU can be an official judge! With your $5 donation (kids under 12 are FREE), you get a spoon and a voting ballot - then you try decadent samples of chowders and soups, then vote for your favorites.
Ten restaurants will compete on each day so plan on attending both days this year.
