Rockford club hosts 8th annual "Best in Paradise" competition


A Rockford club brings Jimmy Buffet's words and his world famous restaurant chain to life with "Best in Paradise" cheeseburger and margarita contest.

For 8 years, the Lombardi Club has hosted and organized the competition.  Teams of up to four present their best burgers and beverages to a panel of judges including our very own Chief Meteorologist Eric Sorensen.

He helped judge 6 different cheeseburgers and margaritas made up by the teams.  Samples were available for everyone at the competition.

All proceeds from the competition go toward the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
