It’s nacho average Friday night on Facebook! Hometown favorite, Bill Murray is teaming up with fellow nacho lover, Guy Fieri to raise funds and awareness for the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund. In what’s sure to be a hilarious face-off, the duo will compete in the Nacho Average Showdown virtual nacho-making competition. Their sons, Hunter Fieri and chef and restaurateur Homer Murray will also battle to show their dads the secret to the perfect nacho.
The live event, which is sure to provide some laughs and feisty but friendly banter will raise funds for America’s restaurant workers facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis. Each competitor will create his signature nacho for the showdown judges, Terry Crews and Shaquille O’Neal. Food Network host Carla Hall will emcee the event, which streams live on the Food Network Facebook page Friday, May 15 at 5 p.m.
The Restaurant Employee Relief Fund was created by Fieri, chef and host of the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF). The Fund provides restaurant workers with $500 grants, and 100 percent of all donations go directly to RERF.
