Already a long-time sup- porter of great charities like the Juvenile Diabetes Research Founda- tion (JDRF), Tom thought Dubuquers just might like to come together to celebrate the glutenous, gluttonous glory that is mac and cheese, in all of its imaginable forms. Thus was born the first event: Mac & Cheese Fest. Scheduled for Thursday, May 4 (May the 4 th Brie with you!) at the Grand River Center in the Port of Dubuque, Mac & Cheese Fest combines the best of both worlds for an amazing experi- ence like no other. Foodies and craft beer lovers unite to taste more than 25 varieties of mac and cheese paired with over 50 craft beers. It’s going to be a very Gouda time! The regu- lar public event runs from 6 to 8 p.m. with VIP access starting at 5 p.m. Live music will be provided by Uni- corn First, pumping out your favorite rock and pop-synth hits from both the 1980s and today. Look out for the fog and bubble-shooting mascot! Advance general admission tickets to this all-you-can-eat extravaganza are $35 with a limit of 800 tickets. Admission includes unlimited sampling of mac and cheese and craft beer, a Mac & Cheese Fest commemorative pint glass and other Mac & Cheese 10  Events 365INK MAGAZINE April 20–May 3, 2017 Issue #289 Fest swag.
