Well, sign me up for a road trip to one of my favorite Idaho cities and vacation spots!  A northern Idaho city is now home to an OFFICIAL Macaroni and Cheese Festival and I think it would be a crime to not be there.

Make sure you put this down in your calendar-- January 13th, 2018: Mac and Cheese Festival in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. It's only a 6 hour drive and if you take the route through Idaho, it's a really beautiful drive at that.  Organized by the Coeur d'Alene Downtown Association, there will be six restaurants competing for the BEST mac and cheese, appropriately named the "Golden Noodle Award".

If you didn't think this could get any better, I hate to tell you this but you're wrong. For just $25, you can get 6 bowls of mac and cheese to check out AND six paired beer tastings.

If you want to pass on the beer, you can--just $15 will get you a sampler of all six dishes.

Tickets go on sale December 6th.
