If you’re actively working to lose weight or eat better, you might want to exit out of this article immediately. While the thought of being fit sounds great, the taste of macaroni and cheese or a grilled cheese sandwich is better. Which is why you need to put this amazing festival on your calendar of plans for Saturday, October 22nd. Houston, Texas will be the home of the Mac and Grilled Cheese Fest and this is one big party that is strictly for adults.
Most people think a festival based on cheese would be a good family outing but this event is kicked up a notch as it’s only for people 21 and over. Yes, there will be lots of adult beverages consumed at this festival and all tickets will be sold as all-inclusive which means once you’re in you can enjoy all the food and drinks you want. This also means planning a sober ride or utilizing a ride share program (Uber or Lyft) would be a great idea on the day of the festival.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time.
