The Sysco Foods Grand Tasting & Bartenders Bubbly Bash was held on Sunday, March 26 at Port O’ Call Restaurant in Kill Devil Hills.
Every restaurant brought their “A” game and it was obvious in every bite.
The upstairs Bartenders Bubbly Bash was a big hit again, with Lucky 12 Tavern and their bartender Glenn taking home the prize for the second year in a row with their champagne cocktail and a whopping $347.30 in cash tips.
