Tasting Table’s Lobster Roll Rumble 2012 (Part I)
On Thursday June 7th, 2012, Tasting Table hosted its third annual Lobster Roll Rumble in NYC benefiting a national nonprofit organization Share Our Strength to help fight childhood hunger in America.
20 contenders representing 10 cities across the country competed for the title of being the Best Lobster Roll in America. With 8 vendors from New York and 3 from Brooklyn, did NYC take home this title?
Beyond the lobster roll contenders, Tasting Table had 6 official partners that help to make the night stellar. While tasting the lobster rolls, the guests are also able to enjoy drinks, entertainment, and even dessert provided by these partners.
Tasting Table set up a strict voting system where each guest are given a electronic voting bracelet that allows one vote for lobster roll and one vote for the best cocktail.
Contenders: B & G Oysters from Boston, MA;
If you missed it this year, make sure to mark your calendars and be ready for it in 2013!
I will go into more details on my tasting experiences for 11 of the vendors next time =)
