Grilled Cheese Throwdown 2013 is just around the corner.
No matter who you are, there's universal truth to the fact that sandwiches taste better when someone else makes them for you. Which is why we're always happy to holster our own spatulas and turn out for a night of grilled cheese sandwiches made by some of the Valley's best known chefs.

Meet up with the girl -- and her fork -- Susie Timm and other cheese-lovers at 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 3 to stuff yourself full of grilled cheese. It's time for Grilled Cheese Throwdown 2013.

The annual competition pits local chefs against each other for the title of Best Grilled Cheese in the Valley. In addition to copious amounts of melted cheese and bread, the afternoon event promises booze (there will be a cash bar) and well, a good time. For $20 a person, that's not a bad buy.

Participating restaurants who will be throwing down include Taggia at the FireSky Resort and Spa, AJ's Fine Foods, Olive and Ivy, District American Kitchen, 24 Carrots and 5th and Wine -- who will have the home field advantage since they'll be housing the event.

The event is 21 and over only -- although eating so much of one of our favorite childhood foods is likely to bring out the inner child in us all.

Tickets for the event tend to sell out so if you're pondering participating in this throw down, we suggest heading over the the Girl Meets Fork website for more information.
