Guactacular 2013

This is year 5. Remember year 1: 350+ people landed upon the Bell House’s front lounge much to my surprise. We ran out of chips, we ran out for chips, and then we ran out of chips. It was a crazy time. And now we’re here in year 5. So we’re doing something special. This year’s Guactacular is going to be a day of fun.

Holy smokes kids, Guactacular is this weekend! Earlier this week, I posted some words of wisdom from some of our Guactacular competitors who have been to a Nachos NY event or two. Now it’s time to hear from the rest of the competitors. Judging by their answers, we all should be pumped to taste some insane and inventive guac this Sunday. And don’t forget about Mothers’ Day! Now, on to the hard-hitting questions.
