Meatball Competition Canceled 
If you had plans to attend the Fatazz Meatball competition on March 6th, your plans have changed. We got word the event has been canceled due to "Due to unforeseen circumstances" with a side note of "Events Suck!". If you purchased tickets, they will be refunded.

Coconut Shrimp Soup
This soup is dangerous. Totally unhealthy, super spicy and tasty enough to rival anything you could get from a restaurant. The Noshery's Coconut Shrimp Soup recipe was a great start. We added 2 cups of chicken broth and 3tbsp of garlic chili paste to turn up the heat. If you don't like thick soups, reduce the cornstarch by half. If you like coconut milk, you will not be disappointed.
