Ladies, gentleman, children, and assorted freaks: The next few paragraphs announce the Most Important Event In The History of Ever.

Since the dawn of time humans have looked to the heavens and asked themselves: “Who makes the best waffles?”

For millenia humanity’s greatest scientific & philosophical minds have tacked this problem – but to no avail.

In order to address such a critical existential question for at least 12 months at a time, a mysterious group of wise, sexy, people founded the Universal Waffle-Off Championship. Chefs from around the universe compete in Asheville, NC to decide who will be crowned “Master of the Waffle Iron And Supreme Potentate”

This year’s contenders are:
–>Celebrity Chef Jeremiah Jackson of “Simply Done Cuisine” fame
–> Ferris Camp of the New England Culinary Institute
–> Mystery Chef (I’m not allowed to announce who this person is publicly – but when local foodies find out – they’re gonna flip.)

The 2012 Waffle Off is being met with particular anticipation as expert archeologists from the History Channel came forward with startling new information: According to the ancient Aztec Prophesy – the next Waffle-Off may signal the return of Quetzalcoatl!

You, dear reader, are cordially invited to participate in the greatest waffle brunch put together by man, alien, or deity. In fact, it may be the last event of 2012 – or ever.

Professional Chefs compete, you eat delicious waffles and vote.

Results are tallied, and the winning chef is glorified above all others!!!

Cost: $5 + one of the following items:

–> Real maple syrup (No fake HFCS crap)
–> 1 gallon of organic orange juice
–> 1 bottle of Sparkling wine and/or Bloody Marys
–> Bowl of fruit salad. (Doesn’t have to be organic)

Note: A small group, such as a family or couple, may show up with a single one of the above items and it will count for the entire group. (For example: A family of 4 can bring a single bottle of real maple syrup.) If you don’t have time to pick up one of the items, no worries, an additional $5 will be accepted.

Babies or sapient entities who don’t eat waffles get in free.

So, to summarize:

What: 2012 Waffle-Off Championship: Return of Quetzalcoatl edition!

Who: Ferris “Waffleicisous” Camp vs Jeremiah “Waffle-nator” Jackson vs “Mystery chef”

Why: To have fun answering the most important question of all time: Who makes the best waffles IN THE UNIVERSE!!!???

Where: 13 Brucemont Circle, 28806 (Joe’s Temple to the Waffle Goddess)

When: Sunday – February 26th, 2011 @ 10:30am – 12:30pm

See you on the 13th! :-)
