Are you a self-described food nerd? A glutton for gastronome geekery? You might be one of the next champions of Slow Food Austin’s Grub Trivia.

Slow Food Austin’s third annual Grub Trivia competition is on August 16th at Saengerrunde Hall. Up to 27 teams will compete to win the surprise grand prize and the honor of being named Austin’s ultimate slow foodies.

This year tickets for the food-focused, pub-style trivia game will feature an open bar and a special tasting from more than a dozen of Austin’s finest “slow” restaurants and artisans. There will be a raffle with prizes from local businesses. The competing teams will include up to six members, and team members will each receive a Slow Food Austin t-shirt.

John Antonelli of Antonelli’s Cheese Shop will join as master of ceremonies. Bryan Butler of Salt and Time Butcher Shop and Salumeria will host the famous halftime hog butchery show with a live auction of the cuts. Special guest Andy Langer will be the half-time show auctioneer.

Slow Food Austin will also present its Snailblazer of the Year Award to a member of the food community who has made a significant impact for the cause of “Good, Clean, and Fair Food.”

All are welcome – as teams or individual “spectators” – to join in the fun and savor an edible education!

Our Grub Crawl Tasting will include:

At the bar, we’ll have:
Banner Distilling Company Vodka and Whiskey, Texas Keeper Cider, cocktails, and beer.
