Originally told you guys about this event on 9/30/14 (story printed below)…so this is just a reminder!

Jeff Eats “did” the last Meatball Room’s meatball contest and it was an absolute blast.

Got a fun event for you guys…Meatball Room’s Homemade Meatball Contest scheduled for October, 18, 2014.

Now, since you are literally the first people hearing about this CONTEST- you got a good shot of being one of the contestants-if that’s your game.

Last Spring (4/26/14) Italian restaurant-Meatball Room held its “first”- charity-best meatball contest on its outdoor patio. There were 25 contestants, a panel of judges (Jeff Eats was one of the judges), live music, kids’ entertainment, complimentry beverages–something like 300 spectators…it was an absolute blast, not to mention that Meatball Room made a nice-monetary donation to a local charity!


Two minutes ago, Jeff Eats received the below-email/press release. In a nutshell-“round” 2 is set for October 18, 2014 at 1pm. Just so you know, Jeff Eats is gonna be a judge again…but this time, I’m gonna be prepared and have a pack of TUMS in my pocket–just between you and me, some of those meatballs gave a whole new meaning to the expression “home made.” Not to beat a dead horse or nothing, but Jeff Eats is wondering if there might be a connection between American teenage runaways and meatballs?-anyway, later today- I’m gonna research Teenage Runaways In Italy!

Finally, back in April- way more than 25 people tried to enter-so if you want to be a contestant, move fast-registration info is in the press release.

Whether you’re a cook or just a watcher- you’ll have a real fun afternoon…catch you on the 18th!
Hi Jeff,
We are at it again – 2nd Meatball Contest at MR! Can you be a judge again? Many thanks! Kim

    Was a spectator at the last contest and it was fun.
    Meatball Room had one of the best balloon makers I have ever seen. The kids and adults loved the guy.
    Definitely going to be there tomorrow.

  2. Nonna says...

    Beautiful weather.

    Jeff, Meatball is the worst joint in Boca. Nothing tastes like it should. They would be closed based on their food but they keep running events to counter their poor food and service. You know I love food so believe me this is a loser!!!!!

    Watched the contest today and judges, contestants and spectators all had a great time. My group and I had a couple of pizzas and sodas while watching and the pizza was delicious. Throw in great Florida weather and a terrific outdoor patio and it was an enjoyable afternoon.
