The avocado is an amazing fruit (yup, not a vegetable!) that is full of nutritional value and health benefits, often being called a “super food.” They’ve got tons of vitamins and “good fats,” which is cool and all, but we mostly love ‘em because they are tasty as hell and are the key ingredient in arguably the world’s best dip: guacamole! If you’re like us and go crazy for guac, then you are definitely going to want to head to Field House American Sports Pub (1310 Fulton Ave., Sacramento) on Saturday, Aug. 13 from 5 to 7 p.m. for the Guac Off 2016, a tasting extravaganza and fundraiser for all ages. Whether or not you enter your own dip, if you love guac, you’ve got to be here, ‘cause the judging happens by you, the event attendees. So come hungry and leave happy and feeling like you did something for a good cause, because proceeds from the ticket sales go to the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children organization. Advance tickets are just $5 for adults, $3 for children. Those go up to $10 for adults and $6 for children at the door. Visit for more info, or hit up and search for the event. Shoot an email to if you’d like to enter your guac into the contest. Dip away, friends!
