Last Sunday we hosted the 8th annual Duckathlon in the Meatpacking District of NYC. In our infamous event, chefs compete in a culinary obstacle course that takes them through hot eateries, dark bars and the diverse shops at the Chelsea Market. The competition was stiff, and we had a fantastic turnout of teams, sponsors and judges. Check out a few of our photos below… and check our Facebook page for more pics. And stay tuned – the video is coming soon!
