Right before any professional sport season, the pundits come out of the woodwork and predict who will win the upcoming season. OK, these pundits are immersed in their respective sport but in most cases, it's the opinion of one and seldom does their prognostication proved to be correct.
Well, thanks to the folks at Mohegan Sun, we've put together a sweepstakes where discernible foodies can vote daily for who they think will win each of our five competition categories. Every vote is a chance to win a FREE "Stay & Slurp" hotel and ticket package.
We don't expect the predictions to be proved accurate as this is more of a popularity contest. The real vote comes after you've sample all the great chowder, soup and bisque from our event. However, we'll have a lot of fun seeing what restaurants are getting their fans excited about the competition but proof is always in the pudding or in our case, chowder.
Here's what we can predict: Chowdafest will feature 40 of the most incredible chefs and restaurants, all of them great but even in a competition that pits the best of the best head to head, there can only be one champion in each category. If the weather is good, we'll likely set a record for attendance which means a record donation in the fight against food insecurity. Hope you have 10/1 circled on your calendar!
