Local bartenders from the Comox Valley squared off in the Mott’s Best Caesar in Town Competition on June 14th. Hosted by The Flying Canoe West Coast Pub, the contest was the kickoff to the BC Shellfish Festival. Our resident Caesar drinking expert Meaghan was graciously invited to sit in as a guest judge. The pair of us were put up in a beautiful room at the Best Western Plus -Westerly Hotel and Convention Centre. We were grateful for our comfortable beds that were within stumbling distance from the event; a determinant that would facilitate optimal Caesar drinking efficiency. With bragging rights and a coveted trophy on the line, this seafood themed battle royale was about to go down…and we were sitting in the meat seats.
