This season, the organization is upping the ante, culinarily speaking, with the Bacon vs. Tofu night, June 27. They even have this cool graphic.
The idea is simple: Fans show up at the game and choose sides. You’re either for #teambacon or #teamtofu. Fans can vote and the results will be tallied and announced at the end of the night. There will be themed-games between innings and bacon and tofu-oriented businesses will be on hand to showcase their products.
Here’s the great part (and where The Beehive readers come in): The Grizzlies are looking for team captains, a couple of local chefs or foodie types who can whip up some culinary creations and help sway the vote. And they need your help. So, we’re throwing it to you. Who would be your choice to lead #teambacon? How about #teamtofu?
To get the conversation started, we’ll nominate:
- Keith from Keith’s Box Car Cafe. The guy knows his pork.
- Whoever does the bacon at Charlotte’s. Seriously, the BLT is probably my favorite sandwich in town. It is to die for (and from probably).
- Team Tofu:
- The chef’s at Whole Foods Market. They do this marinated tofu that is delish and versatile. They could probably come up with more than a couple innovative uses for the bean curd.
- The Million Elephant does a deep-fired tofu that ranks with any meat dish I’ve had.
What do you think? Who does bacon best? How about tofu? It’s slightly more obscure, but a few of your Beehivers are no doubt fantics. Who can lead #teamtofu to victory? Cast your vote by leaving a comment below.
