Babe's cooking up another pre-race Pasta Dinner

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A favorite mainstay of the Boilermaker weekend is here once again.
 
Babe's in North Utica is getting set for its annual free pasta dinner slated for Saturday, with hundreds of pounds of pasta currently being made and about 1,000 loaves of bread being baked.     
     
A 2014 15k bib is all the identification you need to get your pre-race meal free of charge.
     
The "Macaroni Grill and Bar" will be open all day to serve up the fuel you need to run on Sunday.
 
"We encourage the locals to come in and take advantage of the free pasta dinner during the day," said Jeff Stone, of Babe's. "We open at 11 a.m., but we don't get too busy until 6 p.m. 
 
"Before that, reservations are always welcome and we'll get you right in"
 

The meals aren't just for runners either, as volunteers get vouchers to enjoy the big dinner too.
