Better stock up on boxes of instant mac and cheese. If you haven’t already bought your $30 ticket for the Austin Mac ‘n’ Cheese Fest, you’ll be left to your own devices (a pot, water) if you want to enjoy “unlimited mac and cheese tastings” come Nov. 13.
The first ever festival to celebrate cheesy noodles in Austin is officially sold out. A blog post yesterday on the event drew a large, presumably hungry, response from our readers, including one accusation of attempted world domination:
It turns out mac and cheese lovers are more than just talk. While there were reportedly more than 200 cheesy tickets available yesterday afternoon, the event sold out during the time it took me to write this. But turn that macaroni noodle upside down. If this year’s any indicator, this event is sure to be more than a one-off.
For future promotion, may we suggest the tagline, “It’s just like ACL but without music and a lot of mac and cheese.”
