The 8th annual Shrimp CookOff is slated to be held at Ocean Boulevard Bistro & Martini Bar in  Kitty Hawk, NC – from 12:00 noon until 3:00pm on Sunday November 5th.  This casual, fun competition has been a huge success since 2010, and we look forward to an excellent eighth annual event.  We will have 8-10 competing chefs from around the Outer Banks, cooking fresh, local shrimp in their favorite style of preparation.  A live MC will be keeping up with announcements and door prizes and a silent auction will also be held on the second floor of Ocean Boulevard, with a People’s Choice Ballot.  The bar will be open serving Beer & Wine specials along with your favorite beverage.  The cost per person is $25 at the door, and tickets can be bought in advance at Ocean Boulevard or Outer Banks Veterinary Hospital in October 17th.  This year’s event is sponsored by the Nags Head Dolphin Watch, Kitty Hawk Kites, Outer Banks Veterinary Hospital, Access Design, and Max Radio.
