Daylight Savings got you down? Stop mourning that lost hour of sleep and celebrate the good things, like state-wide food competitions! In case you needed another reason to love Rhode Island, head downtown to The Spot Underground right now for The Great Cupcake Championship. Some of our favorite food trucks will be there reppin’ Thayer Street. According to Flour Girls Baking, tickets for today’s cupcake showdown are sold out (boo!), but it’s worth jotting down and following the event’s Facebook page to find out when the next face-off will take place. After all, if $10 gets you all-you-can-eat cupcakes with milk and coffee, imagine what the Mijo’s/Taco Truck duel will get you…
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 4/25
Ratty: Turkey and Wild Rice Soup, Chicken Cutlet Parmesan, Vegetarian Sandwich Bar, Swiss Fudge Cookies
V-Dub: Minestrone Soup, Steak and Pepper Fajitas, Black Bean and Spinach Tacos, Refried Beans, Swiss Fudge Cookies
Advantage: V-Dub. Why would we need a vegetarian sandwich bar when sandwiches are customizable anyway?
Ratty: Carrot Ginger Soup with Agave, Lemon Sesame Chicken, Spinach with Toasted Sesame Seeds, Magic Bar
V-Dub: Bean Chili, Mac And Cheese Bar, Corn Pudding, Braised Rainbow Swiss Chard, Florida Key Lime Pie
Advantage: V-Dub. Cheesy as it may sound, there's really no food quite as comforting as mac and cheese.
