Dessert comes first at this Restaurant Week-eve kick-off battle where pastry chefs from around the state compete and foodies feast. Scores from celebrity judges — Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen, “Next Great Baker” runner-up Gretel-Ann Fischer and Vermont drag legend Amber LeMay — and votes from you decide the winner of Vermont Restaurant Week’s Signature Sweet.
Higher Ground Ballroom, 1214 Williston Road, S. Burlington. Tickets: $15 adv./$20. Limited availability.
