The Monogram Apartment Collection‘s MUSE at Museum District recently hosted “The Big Sizzle: Poolside Grill Competition and Fashion Show.” The day was hot and sunny, which were the perfect elements for a poolside bash at one of Houston’s hottest new apartment complexes. The event took place out at the lush community pool, where several local vendors were set up and DJs from Hot 95.7 FM were spinning the latest tunes. Five teams from other Monogram Apartment communities put their cooking and grilling skills to the test, while local celebrity judges tasted and scored their favorites. The celebrity panel of judges included: Ricky Cruz- Executive Chef at Grotto, Ebony Niicole- Miss Central Texas USA, Natasha Barrett & Katherine Whaley- KTRK ABC 13, William Gilchriest- Executive Chef at Brooklyn Athletic Club, Mike Chabala- Veteran Houston Dynamo Soccer Player and Keola Lui-Kwan from Hot 95.7 FM.
The Muse team ended up winning the grilling competition. Proceeds from this event benefitted The Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance.
