Originating in the Panhandle neighborhood of San Francisco, the Urban Eating League is a progressive dinner with a competitive twist. It’s an evening about eating good food, meeting new friends and getting creative.
If you’re an eater: You and your teammates will visit five houses in one evening, and score each house on creativity, flavor, hospitality, and execution. It’s up to you and your teammates how you will stand out amongst the other teams, for the host sites will be able to vote at the end of the evening for their favorite team of eaters.
If you’re a host: You and your teammates are responsible for planning a meal, buying the food and cooking and serving for 30 people. You will be given a budget of $100. There will be 5 rounds of eaters, 6 people at a time. The event spans about four hours with each round being 30 minutes. There is a 15 minute break between each round for hosts to reset and eaters to travel between sites. It’s up to you and your teammates to decide how you will stand out!
