So you’re getting excited for Mac & Cheese Fest at Copper Mountain. You’ve got your tickets, you’ve seen the menu and you’ve got your schedule planned. Well, here are some important tips to keep in mind so you can make the most of it.
1. Don’t skip breakfast.
Of course you’re going to devour a ton of cheese and pasta but don’t show up on a completely empty stomach. Your body might fight back if you try to stretch that tummy out too fast.
2. "Sample” isn’t quite the right word.
These aren’t those tiny little ketchup-from-McDonald’s sized cups. Don’t be surprised if the chefs hand over big ole bowls of the goods. Which leads us to #3.
3. Leave no friend behind.
If your goal is try every single mac (as it should be), be sure you have a friend or four to share everything with. There’s no way you’ll be able to do it by yourself (unless you’re some kind of super human with a supersized stomach).
4. Slow and steady wins the race.
Savor each mac and don’t eat too fast. With 5 hours of sampling available both Saturday and Sunday, you have plenty of time to try them all.
5. Everything tastes better with vodka.
Each chef/restaurant has a paired Svedka cocktail available so take in the full experience with refreshing libations.
6. Shimmy a little.
The festival comes complete with live music including a performance from SUSTO on Sunday, July 29. A little movin’ around will help all that food settle.
7. Stay within rolling distance.
After the main event, you may be stuffed to the gills and ready for a quick snooze. You know, to aid in the digestive process. Make the most of naptime by lodging just steps away. There are still units available - book now.
There you have it. You’re ready to take on arguably the best food festival in all of Colorado. If you haven't already gotten your tickets, now's the time. See you soon!
