The Big Cheesy: Grilled Cheese

You can’t handle the cheese!

The third annual grilled-cheese showdown returns to its familiar venue, the pop-up Openhouse (201 Mulberry St., New York, NY) in New York this weekend. Featuring an all-star lineup of grilled cheese gods (that include Murray’s Cheese Bar, Lucy’s Whey and former winners Milk Truck and Melt Shop), a $25 ticket gets you an hour-long sampling of what has been described as the best grilled cheese competition in the world.

Various shops all over New York compete in seven different categories. You can wash down the deliciousness with beer from Sixpoint Craft Ales and soft drinks provided by Bella Lula.
