Every Thanksgiving there’s a war at my house. Lines are drawn, allegiances are broken, and blood is shed as everyone vies for my aunt’s mac and cheese. By the end of the day bloated bodies are strewn across the dining room, covered with cheese. Thankfully the Mac Off has enough for everyone to go around. There will be between 20 and 25 different restaurants vying for the crown, and each one will have a cheesy creation for you to sample. You only have a limited amount of sample tickets — general admission gets you 10 — so use them wisely. The event is geared toward families and will have fun attractions and loads of vendors. If you need a break, Annie’s Nannies will be on hand to provide daycare so you can dash to the booze tents like they’re your only hope of salvation. Andrea Dekker, marketing director for A Snappy Event, says, “Mac Off was the event that started our company. The owner, Paul Farrell, realized that there was no event in the area that focused around this amazing Southern food.” No word on mac and cheese beer yet, but there’s still time.
