Holy crap, is it almost that time of year already? Start watering your avocado trees, and poisoning your friends’ avocado trees… because GuacBowl 2009 is only two months away! Save the date: February 1, 2009.
So Guacweiler Beach didn’t win Best Presentation. It was still a lot of fun to make, which I painstakingly documented while I was building it. The whole process took about two weeks — not including ordering the parts from BBQs Galore. So if you ever wanted to know how one goes about building and a […]
Shahan has made a video of Guac Bowl! It’s titled “The Agony, the Controversy, the Glory… A hard hitting, behind the scenes exposé of what really happened this year at Guac Bowl.” Click on the picture to the left to watch it. Thanks, Shahan!
Oh, what a Guac Bowl it was. Every year, the entries get bigger, tastier, and crazier, and yesterday was no exception. Let me put it into context: usually, about half the entries are clearly aiming to win the “presentation” category, and the other half are tasty, but in regular ol’ bowls. This year, every guac […]
It’s Guac Bowl Day! Yaaay! It’s raining! Booo! That’s right. The big news of the day so far is that Mother Nature fucking hates Guac Bowl, and made it rain. How will this affect the delicate balance of moisture in your guac? How will it affect voter turnout? How will it affect my entry specifically, […]

Holy shit! Guac Bowl is the day after tomorrow! Are you panicking? Don’t worry. Take a few deep breaths into a paper bag, then read these calming words of advice: – When you get to my house, make sure to check your guac in with me. I’ll give you a little numbered sticker to put […]
The good press just keeps on coming! The Guac Bowl was featured on Evite.com’s blog! Eerily, like a modern day Carnac The Magnificent, I predicted this would happen two posts ago. What’s that? You didn’t know the Premiere Internet Invitation-Sending Website® had a blog? What rock have you been living under, chump? (Thanks, Christine, for […]
…sort of. If LA.CityZine.com were as popular as, say, Google or Yahoo, we’d be famous. That’s right! Everyone’s favorite “Zine” about “City” life in “LA” did a feature about Guac Bowl! Like the Nikki Finke of guacamole competitions, hard-nosed journalist/Guac Bowl participant/neighbor Maggie Flynn pulled no punches in her scathing exposé of our yearly party. […]
Here’s another Guac Talk!! for you. Today’s guest bloggers are Josh and Alie Lee, friends of mine who moved to Connecticut a year and a half ago, and decided to host their own Guac Bowl East. It was the first of the Official Guac Bowl Spin-Offs — though as you will read in the first […]
