We are happy to announce that the 11th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational returns for a triumphant “once more, unto the breach” attack of all things cheesy in our original stomping grounds at Los Angeles Center Studios on 4/20 from 11am to 6pm.
The 11th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational is happening on April 20th, 2013 at Los Angeles Center Studios in downtown Los Angeles and will be the biggest, cheesiest, MOST imperial delight to ever land on the toasted, melted shores of Los Angeles.
NOWHERE will you find more hot cheesy goodness than at the GCI, with vendors such as The Grilled Cheese Truck, Heywood Grilled Cheese, The Counter, Greenspan’s Grilled Cheese, The Oaks Gourmet, Melt It, Elbows Mac & Cheese, Cheesy Amigos, Dogtown Dogs, and many more, you’ll be able to pack your belly to bursting with hot cheesy goodness!
Plus, there’s music! The infamous RICHARD CHEESE AND LOUNGE AGAINST THE MACHINE will be playing the GCI at 12:30pm! ALL THIS CHEESE will definitely turn it up to 11!
What? You haven’t bought tickets yet! Well not to worry.
Tickets are on sale now! Even though we have reached capacity for official judges for 2013, don’t you worry because you can still vote in the People’s Choice awards by purchasing as many hot and fresh grilled cheese from our vendors that space and time will allow.
Our Sponsors are totally the best people EVER!
