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, 9/26
Ratty: Tangy BBQ Pork Spareribs, Siena Roasted Couscous, Gnocchi, Swiss Fudge Cookies
V-Dub: Black Bean Louisiana, Pepperoni French Bread Pizza, Curly French Fries, Swiss Fudge Cookies
Advantage: V-Dub. Did you pick up on their strong "French" theme? No? Neither did France.
Ratty: Sauteed Collard Greens, Country Wedding Soup, Cuban Stir Fry, Chocolate Cream Pie
V-Dub: Ziti Pasta. Fresh Sunny Sprouts, Salt and Pepa Jerk Chicken, Fried Rice, Chocolate Cream Pie
Advantage: V-Dub. Salt and Pepa Jerk Chicken dishes really push it, push it real good. But this dish ain't for everybody — only the sexy people.
