Tacoma, Wash. — On Saturday, March 29 at 6:30 pm Museum of Glass will kick off its third annual Slider CookOff. The evening will feature a slider cooking competition and tastings showcasing seven South Sound restaurants as they battle it out on the grill to prepare the tastiest slider. Guests along with “mystery” judges, who will circulate the event throughout the evening, will vote for their favorite offering.
Robin Lucas from ShowCase Media was a judge at the 2013 Slider Cook-Off. Lucas recalled, “Last year’s slider event was chock full of savory food, approachable art, music and cars. It made for a cultural experience that was exhilarating and engaging all at the same time.”
Along with the food, the event will also include 1950s rock and roll music performed by Daryl and the Diptones and live glassblowing by John Miller. Miller is known for creating glass sculptures of iconic American food, such as cheeseburgers and donuts.
Philip Panagos entered his restaurant Social Bar and Grill into the slider race last year, but this year he’ll be returning to the competition with his second restaurant, Paesan. “I’m excited to have two ponies in the race,” says Panagos. “Guests should expect sliders that are really pushing our limits with bold flavors and bright colors. I’ve pitted the chefs at each restaurant against each other, so we have some in-house status at stake as well.”
