Taste and vote for your favorite RESTAURANT CEVICHE at this casual walk-around competition!
On this day, restaurants will compete to see who has the best #ceviche. For this year, we've invited restaurants from Mexico to participate hence the 'No Borders' addition to the name!
Two awards are given: A panel of local celebrity judges will conduct a blind-tasting and present the winner with the 'Best Ceviche' award. The People's Choice award will be chosen by YOU! Every attendee will receive tasting tickets and a voting ballot upon check-in. After you taste all of the ceviches, you will submit your voting ballot. After the ballots are counted and tallied, the winner is announced.
