Whether you’re a cooking connoisseur, a food-biz wiz, or gastronome novice, Slow Food Austin challenges you to join its second annual Grub Trivia fundraising event on August 17th at Saengerrunde Hall. Up to 30 teams will compete to win the surprise grand prize and the honor of being named the quickest slow foodies in town.
Emceed this year by John Antonelli of Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, the food-focused, pub-style trivia game will also include round prizes; a “grub crawl” of tastings from more than a dozen of Austin’s finest “slow” restaurants and artisans; happy-hour priced local brews, wines, and spirits; raffle prizes from local businesses; and its famous halftime hog butchery by Bryan Butler of Salt and Time Butcher Shop and Salumeria with cuts auctioned by Andy Langer.
Slow Food Austin will also present its Snailblazer Award to a member of the food community who has made a significant impact for the cause of “Good, Clean, and Fair Food.”
