    Some of the best Italian food I've tasted in awhile. Many dishes were restaurant quality. Everyone was friendly and I can't wait until our next MeetUp! The Sportsman's Warehouse is a class act-fantastic employees!

    Awesome is the only word to describe the Italia Cook-Off. The quality of the dishes improves each time and that seemed like an impossibility before. What imagination and skill! Those who are not participating are missing and important food adventure, and culinary experience.

    We can start cooking as soon as we are set up. It's not like the last one. Just a friendly cook off among friends. We just have to be done by 12. I'm usually there a little before 9 and it's not a problem.

    You don't have to be a member, although it is encouraged. It is pretty easy to become a member. Register on and RSVP. That simple!
