Over 700 people gathered for 'Kielbasa Idol' at Fifth Street Hall in Grand Rapids on Saturday night to settle one the West Side's oldest debates:  Who has the best kielbasa?

'Kielbasa Idol' Co-chair Ed Sypniewski commented:

It was absolutely phenomenal.  We had a line around the building that was longer than any Pulaski Days line we've ever had.

10 local markets and restaurants participated and awards were given for first and second place in two categories:  Judge's Choice and People's Choice.

Money raised went to support Steepletown Neighborhood Services.  Steepletown Neighborhood Services supports local residents through budgeting classes, educational support, youth camps, and much more.

Now for the GOOD stuff!  The winners!

Judge's Choice:  Plumb's - 4 Mile (1st) and Dick's Market (2nd)

People's Choice:  Frank's Market (1st) and Parkside Marketplace (2nd)

I am officially hungry.
