Show Off Your Best (Meat)Balls

Do you have the balls to take on a meatball challenge?

If so, Boca’s Meatball Room (3011 Yamato Road, 561/325-7352) has just the thing for you. It’s the annual Homemade Meatball Contest, a balls-to-the-wall taste-off to discover the best home-cooked meatballs around and, not at all incidentally, raise money for the Boca Raton chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Your soon-to-be prize-winning meatballs will be judged by a distinguished panel of experts who know a thing or two about balls, including sports-talk host Sid Rosenberg and the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders.

The event takes place at the restaurant at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18. It’s limited to 25 contestants and they’ll all have to pre-register by calling 561/210-4411 or emailing Then just whip up your meatballs and schlep them over to the restaurant for judging.

In addition to being able to brag about have the best (perhaps even the biggest) balls in town, the winner will get their meatballs put on Meatball Room’s menu, plus a $500 gift certificate and other good stuff. So get the balls rolling. . .
