An expanded Grilled Cheese Invitational spread out this past Saturday at Center Studios, with eternal lines that shook us with flashbacks of the Street Food Festival's clusterhump here in February. Getting close enough to see, let alone buy, most of the 250 sandwich entries presented great difficulty, but we spied some zany versions floating past the sample-dispensing Tillamook Truck. There were grilled cheese made with chocolate, red velvet, Funions, maple syrup, cheese of every shade, and enough pork-products to induce nightmares, as well as one named for Morrissey and Rob Drydek's Cheese Ballin' crew, among a cast of costumed cheeseballs. We loved Hot Knives' "Band Camp" grilled cheese with aged cheddar and apple butter, Grilled Cheese Truck's brie with cranberry, and The Oaks' black forest bacon sandwich. So, who won prizes for their creations?
