The salsa slam marks an expansion for Food Wars. Organizer Jeannie Choe says this time, 300 tickets will go on sale, up from the usual 200-250. At $16, it's a bit pricier, too ($16, instead of $10-$15), since it's a benefit for two groups. Tickets go on sale next Monday.
If you get the nod to be one of the 20 competitors, you'll get $15 worth of produce from the Ferry Plaza farmers' market. Casa Sanchez is donating the chips. To be considered, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the following: your name, the name of your salsa, a description of it, your phone number, and your e-mail. Oh, and buena suerte.
