Yesterday was a beautiful spring Sunday on the Outer Banks and a perfect day for the 2nd Annual OBX Taco Cook-Off at Ortega’z in Manteo. The money raised at this event will help send underprivileged children to summer camp at Jennette’s Pier. In fact, their goal was surpassed yesterday and 70 kids will be able to enjoy camp over the next two summers. How awesome is that?! Thank you to all 400 people who came out to support this cause on Earth Day!
Chefs Nathan Robinson and Dave Darnell served a Tamarind & Passionfruit Short Rib Taco that was deeee-licious and took home 2nd place in the People’s Choice and 3rd place in the Judge’s Choice.
Thanks for a great event, Jennette’s Pier! We were happy to participate.
