How do you get to experience the best restaurants and local eats all in one night? At the Battle of the Hors D’Oeuvres!

The 29th annual Big Brothers Big Sisters event is an indoor food and drink festival and organizers say the idea is all about interaction.

Participating restaurants and food establishments will battle it out in a competition for their chance to win two award: guests will have a chance to be food critics and vote for their favourites to win the “People’s Choice Award”, while a panel of expert judges will choose the “Critic’s Choice Award” winners.

Restaurants include the Bourbon Tap & Grill, Neros Steakhouse, Rino’s Kitchen, Snack Bar-B-Q, Sushi Guru and The Willistead Restaurant.

(See photos from last year’s event.)

Other participating food establishments include Caesars Windsor, The Iron Kettle Bed and Breakfast, Parkside Grill – Rochester Place Resort, Smashed Apple Gourmet Catering, and Thyme to Go.

And on the beverages side of things, expect to see BREW, CREW, Muscedere Vineyard Estate Winery, Oxley Estate Winery, Pelee Island Winery, Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery, and the Walkerville Brewery.

The event takes place at Caesars Windsor on May 21st. Tickets are available on the BBBS website and include hors d’oeuvres from each vendor plus drink tickets.
