Cocktails and Curds at Rosy's, Super Bowl LII

UPTOWN?The second year of the Cocktails and Curds Competition has seen the informal class co-hosted by St. James Cheese Co. and Cure's Neal Bodenheimer transform into a full-blown event, with judges, a cash prize, and a spirited (hooray for puns) sense of competition. According to Gambit, the finals for Cocktails and Curds will take place this Monday, Oct. 14, at Rosy's Jazz Hall in front of a judging panel that includes Sue Zemanick, Justin Devillier and Aaron Burgau, Bodenheimer himself, and Hogs for the Cause founders Rene Louapre and Becker Hall. First prize is $1,000, and tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door. [Gambit]

UPTOWN?Monday out-on-the-towners may also be tempted by the eighth appearance of the Italian pop up Gemelis at Lilette on Magazine Street. Lilette sous chef Edward Charles embraces his Italian roots with a four-course dinner that forces guests at this intimate dinner party to "meet strangers" by sharing platters of bruschetta, bucatini alla matriciana, and bistecca alla griglia.

CBD?Good news for vendors in the CBD?not even a dramatic, game-altering power outage can keep people from wanting to visit New Orleans. The city has put in an application to host Super Bowl LII, joining a list of five other cities: Miami, Dallas, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, and Tampa Bay. []

SEVENTH WARD?The 7th Ward welcomes a new resident this week, Mother Land Cafe, a Senegalese and Gambian restaurant that lists its dishes, according to Megan Braden-Perry, "on a picture menu on the wall." Chef Ted Ftty does her best to draw local analogies to her exotic dishes, explaining that theibou yapp, a traditional Senegalese meat and rice stew, is really just like jambalaya. [Gambit]

EVERYWHERE?Gambit has released its Fall Restaurant Guide, which offers a neighborhood-by-neighborhood breakdown of the best eats, drinks, and more eats all across our fair city. Be warned: you might get dizzy perusing the whole thing. [Gambit]
