For its fifth round, the grilled-cheese showdown presents a lineup of six sandwich masters, such as Sons of Essex, Hudson Common and Mrs. Dorsey's Kitchen, who'll riff on the childhood classic with variations like garlic-challah-bacon and pulled pork–pepperjack. A ticket gets you an hour-long sampling of the curd creations, a pair of Goose Island winter ales and a vote for this year’s victor. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Food Bank for NYC.
