The CIA at Copia Second Annual Guac Off!

Date: June 16 @ 12:00 pm2:00 pm
Price: $25.00

It’s guacamole game time at The CIA at Copia on Sunday, June 16 for our second annual Guacamole Culinary Competition! 

Local Bay Area chefs will be pitted against each other to see whose guacamole reigns supreme! Each restaurant will be provided with staple guac ingredients, AND they are encouraged to bring a few special ingredients to create their signature dip.

Sample the guac goods during a walk-around tasting in our state-of-the-art kitchen and vote for your favorite! A panel of special judges will determine the “Judge’s Pick”, and you’ll decide the “People’s Choice” award. New this year will be the “Peacock Award” for most original recipe!

Then once the winners are crowned, enjoy a summer libation on our outdoor mezzanine overlooking the Copia gardens. Tacos and beer will be available for purchase after the event.
