It's a big decision: who makes the best meatballs in the Mohawk Valley? Taste and cast your vote for your favorite restaurant meatball recipe on Sunday, March 7th, 2010 from noon until 4pm at the Blue Flag Room located in the Historic Union Station, 321 Main Street, Utica NY.

Restaurants competing for the coveted Best of the Best Meatballs Trophy as of Jan. 28th: The Auburn, Bella Cucina, Busy Bee Italian Café, Jake's Deli & Pub, Joey's, Nicole Rocci*, Prop's Inn, Raspberries Café, Rosa's and Ventura's.

Abraham House’s (whose mission is to provide a secure and loving home without charge to the terminally ill) is holding its second annual March Meatball Madness fundraiser, Sunday, March 6 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. at The Blue Flag Room and at the Historic Union Station located on 311 Main Street, Utica. The public will vote on which local restaurants have the best meatball & sauce recipe. New this year will be pasta bowls donated by local potter, Dennis R. DeStefanis. There will also be many free tastings, family entertainment and a kid’s activity corner. Adult tickets are $10.00, children 6-17 $5.00 and 5 and under free. Advance tickets for $1.00 off and can be obtained by calling Abraham House at 733-8210 or on their website at www.theabrahamhouse.org.

Here at "Broken-Down Upstate City" I'll put in a plug for Dino's meatballs at your local market. Pretty good on a weeknight with a quick red sauce.
