The Short List: Taste of Williamsburg Edition
Because it is funnier when it is in Italian
Sunday afternoon, Neighbors Allied for Good Growth and People's Firehouse will kickoff the inaugural Taste of Williamsburg at N. 11th Street. They've been marketing like crazy and it is expected to be a crowded affair (get there early, I bet they run out of food).
The event will feature multiple cookoff champion Theo Peck, below left, versus Nick Suarez, below right, for the heavyweight cooking title of Brooklyn. Read here for a preview. Peck is heavily favored, but don't sleep on Suarez, who drew pastrami chili as his go-to dish for the competition.
Check back early next week for a full round-up of the winners and losers (as well as a list of boom and bust links of stories related to Williamsburg's condo boom). May the best cook win.
