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 30th 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 Budokan PanAsian, Bistro, Caesars Windsor, Enzo’s Trattoria, F & B Walkerville, Marco’s Pizzeria, Thai Palace, and Twigg’s Bar & Grill.

(See photos from last year’s event.)

Other participating food establishments include Caesars Windsor Catering, Just Jeff’s Gourmet Express, Parkside Grille, Smashed Apple Gourmet Catering, Thyme To-Go, and the University of Windsor.

And on the beverages side of things, expect to see BREW, Canadian Club Whiskey, CREW, Pelee Island Winery, Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery, and the Walkerville Brewery.

The event takes place at Caesars Windsor on May 26th. Tickets are available on the BBBS website and include hors d’oeuvres from each vendor plus drink tickets.

Organizers say Battle of the Hors D’Oeuvres has been supported by the community for 30 years and has raised over $1.5 million for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex youth mentoring programs.
