The Fried Chicken Throwdown
The 2nd Annual Fried Chicken Throwdown, sponsored by Peerless Distilling Company, will be held on Saturday, October 17th from 12:00pm-5:00pm at the new ReSurfaced lot at 10th Street and the Ohio River in downtown Louisville. This sustainability inspired culinary competition will award cash prizes of $500 to the Best Chicken, Best Side, and Best Dessert, and the winners will be selected by ballot voting amongst the attendees. Admission to the event is free, and tastes will be sold for $3 for chicken and $2 for sides and desserts. All proceeds will benefit Slow Food Bluegrass' Garden Grant Program.
Participating restaurants will include Royals Hot Chicken, Wiltshire on Market, Joella's Hot Chicken, Farm to Fork, Over the 9, Roux, Marketplace, Gilberto Gelato, and others.
The Fried Chicken Throwdown will be one of the exclusive events to take place at the new Resurfaced lot, which will be activated for 3 days only, Oct.15-17, 2015. The ReSurfaced movement is meant to illustrate the economic potential and benefit of incrementally activating currently unproductive spaces while creating a more vibrant downtown.
