Tickets to Meat Fight, the barbecue competition and fundraiser being hosted by Alice "Cheap Bastard" Laussade at Sons of Hermann Hall in Deep Ellum, are sold out.
Never fear, though, because City of Ate has a pair of tickets that will let some lucky duo gorge themselves on delicious dead animal parts, beers from Deep Ellum Brewing Co. and tasty tastings from Knob Creek. Better still, the fortunate two can pretend they're contributing to the National MS Society, Meat Fight's beneficiary. Bestest still, the lucky ducat winners won't have to listen to Alice stand outside their homes chanting "loser, looooser," which she intends to do to anyone who doesn't come to the November 4 event.
How do you win the pair? Simple: In the comments below, write a single caption for the photos of those three chefs up there, Jeffery C. Hobbs, Jeff Bekavac and Chad Houser, who will square off in a barbecue competition. The winner will be chosen by Alice, so you should have a good idea of the sort of creativity we're looking for here. We will announce the victor at 5 p.m.-ish Thursday.
