Today is that all important day for Hot Chefs Day across the entire Eater universe. Here's how it works: Today, 16 Philly Chefs will compete in four different rounds. Each poll will be open for one hour. Then, the winners from each round will go on to compete in a finals round. Tomorrow, our big winner will go head to head with the chefs from all the other Eater sites to find out who is the absolute hottest chef.
If hot chefs aren't your thing, then you should visit the other blogs around town today that will tell you where to get oysters, eat chocolate, or find that perfect last-minute V-Day option for your sweetheart. And, of course, there will be another blog that says "up yours" to this terrible Hallmark holiday and will find ways for you single guys and gals ways to party solo. But, if you like looking at hot people, then you should stay right here all day.
The first poll will go up at 11:30 a.m. and close at 12:30 p.m., and then the next will close at 1:30 p.m., and so on. Since Jason Cichonski won the whole shebang last year, he is not eligible to participate this time around. But, we'll throw pictures of Jason in now and again as a palate cleanser.
Come back at 11:30 a.m. when the fun starts.
