We're going on a little hiatus to recharge and get some vacation time from our show. We'll be back very soon with some fresh new content and new interviews. In the meantime, if you're new to our podcast or have been behind, now would be a great time for you to catch up on old episodes. We'll be back very soon just in time for the summer season and the warm weather!

Will a Cinderella entree make it to the finals? Will a ramen in Capitol Hill knock off one of Seattle's most iconic sandwiches in Round 1? Will a popular Chicken Wing spot steamroll the whole competition? Tune in and listen to all the match ups and upsets and find out who comes out victorious in the Tournament of Champions.

    In addition, Monica and Nelson eat through the Greater Seattle area this week in their "What are we eating?" section. Nelson visited Cinnaholic up in Capitol Hill for Cinnamon Rolls and more, received a delivery from Jennie's Goodies, stopped by Sip and Smile for the @bambamlambchops Bamdan, revisited Famous Kitchen BBQ, had happy hour at Joey's in Bellevue, and ate burritos at La C******a Taqueria, El Maestro del Taco, and Carnitas Michoacan.
