About a dozen restaurants in San Diego are going to battle it out for bragging rights on the best macaroni and cheese in the entire city. Fun? Yes, we definitely think so.

The San Diego Mac ‘N’ Cheese Festival is serving up some of the most delicious pasta with gooey cheesy sauces, where competitors will offer yummy takes on the classic dish. Twelve restaurants compete in this creative mac ‘n’ cheese competition where ticket buyers (lucky rascals) and a panel of judges get to sample these mouth-watering variations of the classic dish. As if there were more reasons to love the concept, there will be beer and wine tastings, live music and even a mac ‘n’ cheese eating contest!
