Tonight: Slider Battle @ YOLO!

Tonight, 17 Fort Lauderdale chefs and their teams are trucking over to YOLO for "Sips & Sliders at Sunset," a friendly competition that started when YOLO threw down the gauntlet, challenging its neighbors to do better than YOLO's signature meatball

slider with ricotta cheese.

The competition is wide open -- chefs can bring

chicken sliders or crabcake sliders or try their hand with the standard baby beef burgers. Participating restaurants include

3030 Ocean,  Johnny V's, Mancini's, Blue Moon Fish Co., the Grateful

Palate, Himmarshee Bar & Grill, Casablanca Cafe, Noodles Panini,

D'Angelo, Rocco's Tacos, and China Grill.

Tickets cost $25 in advance ($30 at the door). That includes two drink tickets, winetasting, and the sliders, of course!  All proceeds go to Jack & Jill children's charity.  (A similar event in 2009 was called "Moonlight, Meatballs, and Martinis.")

Attendees will be able to vote for their favorite slider alongside "celebrity" judges including Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler, Miami Dolphins player Anthony Fasano, WSVN-TV meteorologist Julie Durda, New Times Associate Editor Deirdra Funcheon, and

Maxim's Hometown Hottie Lisa Morales.
