If you've got a hankering for some grilled cheese, there's no better day to sate your appetite for the beloved sandwich than on April 20, 2013, when the Grilled Cheese Invitational holds its 11th annual gathering.

The cheesy event will take place this year at Los Angeles Center Studios, and will feature a very special (and aptly-named) guest entertainer, Richard Cheese. 200 competitors will go pan to pan for top grilled cheese-making honors in a variety of categories, plus vendors will be on hand to help you eat your fill of delicious eats, and there will be microbrews to help wash it all down. The GCI says info about competitor registration is forthcoming, if you have your recipe and spatula at the ready for battle.

The GCI announced via Facebook this morning details about tickets: Pre-Sale Tickets and Judging Society memberships and competitor registration will all go on sale on 3/8.
