Tickets for Tasting Table's Lobster Roll Rumble Go on Sale Today
The Lobster Pound's roll will rumble.
Our digestive tracts are still working out the kinks from the Lobster Roll Claw-Off that Tasting Table threw last June, and this year's iteration promises to be a boon for gastroenterologists across the city.
The folks at TT have sent word that tickets to the Lobster Roll Rumble on June 9 will go on sale today at 1 p.m. With 17 rolls from across the country and extra-fancy judges, it looks like it's taken a page from the Burger Bash.
This may be the only opportunity you'll ever have to stuff your piehole with crustaceans while Martha Stewart, Harold Dieterle, Katie Lee, and Kyle MacLachlan (Agent Cooper owns a winery, and apparently likes to eat) do the same. They'll be judging the rolls, and Martha will probably be judging you as well.
Tickets are $130, and their proceeds benefit Share Our Strength. A list of all of the competitors can be found on the Lobster Roll Rumble site. Sadly, it doesn't include Dr. Claw, but as he proved last year, he doesn't need a formal invitation to participate.
