Mac-Off Matches Iconic Side Dish With Beer and Liquor

bildeSouthern Season next week is offering a class on pairing wine with mac-n-cheese, which seems almost too easy: Red wine and cheese are ideal partners.

Yet there won’t be any wine on the menu at Mac-Off, the fourth annual attempt to determine the area’s best mac-n-cheese chef. Restaurants including Rue de Jean, Angel Oak, Poogan’s Porch and Southern Season will sling the side dish at the Grove in Patriot’s Point from 2 p.m.-7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12.

So what to drink with the signature dish? Mac-Off’s featuring beer from Sam Adams, Angry Orchard and Bud Light, as well as a bloody Mary bar stocked with Tito’s Vodka, FireFly Moonshine, and Larceny Bourbon. Drinks are included with a VIP ticket, which sells for $50.

A regular ticket, which comes with 10 tasting tickets, is $20.

Mac-Off last year drew 4200 people, which may help explain why organizers are suggesting attendees “save the time and worry by taking the Charleston Water Taxi from downtown to Patriots Point and back for only $9.”

Tickets can be purchased in advance here.
