This Saturday is both Chinese New Year and Robbie Burns Day — but it’s also the Uptown Waterloo BIA’s inaugural Uptown Comfort Food Crawl that’s part of their 9th annual Chili Cook-off, 2nd annual Mac ‘ N’ Cheese Challenge and first ever Soup Showdown.
The event runs from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturday only and is part of Waterloo’s annual Winterloo Festival. There are judges’ awards and People’s Choice awards.
The comfort food crawl attracted over 500 people last year and will be held at three Uptown Waterloo restaurants:
Chili Cook-Off: Kentucky Bourbon & BBQ
Mac ‘n’ Cheese Challenge: Abe Erb Brewing Company
Soup Showdown: Prohibition Warehouse
Tickets are $10 for all three food events. Buy them here.
