World championship cheese dip

Posted By on Sat, Oct 9, 2010 at 12:12 PM


The First World Cheese Dip Championship, the subject of this week's cover story, is underway at Diickey-Stephens park. Looking food. (I meant good, but it also looked like food.) I judged, doing my bit for charity.

Lots of good cheese dip was judged. After 15 samples, I concluded less is more. A good spice blend is more important than sausage or spinach or cilantro or other chunks of stuff. Nice try on a vegan entry, but ....

Huge crowd. Some people had their five-gallon pots wiped out in an instant. Perfect day. The mezzanine provided shade from another day of 90-degree, but dry weather. Lots of music. Plenty of beer. How long the cheese dip will last is anyone's guess. It was pretty darn good first-time effort for Nick Rogers and his cheese dip mania. I snapped a couple of contestants before the lines got long.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
