John Sedlar to Open R26 on Beverly

It’s not an April Fool’s prank. It really is the first day of Grilled Cheese Month. And to honor this historic moment in dairy, online registration to the 8th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational has officially opened. Sponsored exclusively by Tillamook (the guys behind the mobile loaves of cheddar you’ve seen on the road recently) this year’s invitational is the go-to event for gooey cheese aficionados throughout the country. And the best part—the challenge is open to the pubic. So let the melting begin. Contestants, register at the website quickly. The max number of competitors is 300 (250 amateur/50 professional). Any spillover will be placed on a waiting list. Spectators, mark your Google maps and iCals, this year Mecca will be at the Los Angeles Center Studio in downtown on April 24th.

BTW, if you’re looking to be a judge, make sure to register at the website as part of the Judging Society. (That’s right, it’s a society.)
