Well the Greatest Grilled Cheese & Music Giveaway has come to a close and we now have our winners. These fine punsmiths were assigned with the grueling task of coming up with making a cheese related pun out of a famous musician or band name. The example given: A Tribe Called Quest = A Tribe Called Queso.

As you can see below they certainly did not disappoint. The following ten winners get to bring a guest to a grilled cheese tasting party hosted by The Melt at 925 Market Street, where they will get to munch to their hearts’ content, while drinking craft beer. Afterwards they’ll be heading over to The Warfield so they can groove their butts off to Big Gigantic. Here are the winners and their epic cheese puns.
