Be a Judge at JA World Uncorked!

We'll admit it. Being a judge at a food event is all kinds of wonderful.

You get to eat delicious food, drink heavenly libations -- and critique everything. That's right! You get to do what your mom, every one of your teachers, and the bible have told you not to do -- judge others!

Don't believe us? Experience the supreme joy for yourself.

Clean Plate Charlie is curating this year's JA World Uncorked event on Saturday, January 19 from 6:30 - 10 :30 p.m. at Junior Achievement World at Huizenga Center

at Broward College (1130 Coconut Creek Boulevard, Coconut Creek) and we need another judge. That, dear reader, could be you.

Since we take judging very seriously, we want to make sure our special

guest judge knows their responsibilities. So, we're asking our readers

to submit their favorite south Florida restaurant and why on our

Facebook page (friend us if you're not already a fan). Be descriptive and knowledgeable (in other words -- make

our mouths water).

We'll pick the best answer on Friday, January 11 and

notify the winner. Please make sure you can attend and judge the event,

and are 21 or over.

The winner will receive a pair of tickets to

JA World Uncorked! (a $300 value) and bragging rights for judging a

big-time swank-a-delic curated food and wine event.

Tickets for JA World Uncorked! are still available for purchase and a portion of proceeds benefits Junior Achievement. Tickets include all food, drinks,

live entertainment by The Edge Band, a silent auction, and complimentary valet parking.
