Brooklyn Cook-offs

Pinche triumphed over Mercadito and La Barra at the invitation-only Guactacular at the Bell House last night, but amateurs can go for glory in a Cupcake Cook-off at Union Pool on Monday night. A few entrants will even win a stupid nifty single-cupcake container for just walking through the door. [Metromix, Brooklyn Based]
