Meatballs mean different things in different parts of the world. In Germany, they’re made with anchovy or salted herring; in Greece, you’ll find mint leaves in the ingredient list; across the globe they are baked, fried, steamed or braised.
But no matter how you make them, this year in downtown Albany there’s a very important ingredient – fun.
On September 28, 2014 the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District is hosting Food Fight | MeatBall Edition from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The food competition pits Albany County restaurants against each other in eight categories. Meat not your thing? Good news – categories include everything from best meatball to best vegetarian or vegan and everything in between.
For $1 per portion, the public will have the chance to taste meatballs from a number of restaurants including Jack’s Oyster House, Wolfs 1-11 and more to vote for the People’s Choice winner.
What’s that? You want to help decide another category? Ask and you shall receive!
We’re looking for a member of the public to help judge a category in the Food Fight – and on top of the fantastic job of helping to decide a winner, the person chosen will also get a downtown Albany t-shirt and a $100 gift certificate to a BID business of their choice.

See you Downtown!
