The Great Guac Off

The Great Guac Off exists for a simple reason: to marry team building activities with that most delicious of foods knows as the avocado. Whether you smash it, mash it, stir it or just order it, everyone loves a little guac.

When you do your team building or team bonding activity with the Great Guac Off, you can expect:

  • fun games like Punacado and an updated version of happy cup
  • adult story time, with some of the wildest facts you never knew about avocados
  • snacks! including chips, veggies and salsa to eat with your guac
  • more than just a guac making competition
  • fun, active, engaging competition for your whole team

The Great Guac Off is available throughout NYC (and in other cities as well). They operate out of a network of rental spaces, which means they can usually get a location close to your office. The prices seem reasonable, especially once you include the cost of food you would otherwise pay for at a restaurant.

Overall, if your team is into cooking competitions and loves to eat, a guac off could be a perfect fit for you!

Quote from the Website:

“I had a great time on this walking tour. Our guide was very generous and made us fell right out home, while he walked us to some of the most delicious, authentic and historical eateries on this side of NYC. From his stories I got a good feeling of the Lower East Side neighborhood: it’s history and cultural influence on the island of Manhattan. I had a wonderful time, and my belly was happily filled with a variety of tastings. I loved experiencing this piece of New York with you.”

Quote from the Website:

“I loved the tour before it even started. Ahoy New York is run by Alana Hoye, who is a New York food expert. Her specialty is Chinatown and Little Italy, and she’s spent the past three years perfecting this three hour tour. In between tastings Alana and her assistant Ray filled us in on the history of the two neighborhoods (fascinating) and pointed out landmarks like New York’s first tenement building. Not to mention a TON of recommendations on which restaurants to try (and which to avoid). We left VERY full and happy.”
