Less than one hour remains in our Munch Madness restaurant tournament. It's down to Hungry Mother and East Coast Grill. Things are getting ugly. Over the weekend, the following arrived at East Coast Grill:

Dead fish, a six-pack of Miller High Life, and a threatening note. "To ECG: Drop out of the contest now or you will really know what Hell Night is!"

"Around 5:30 today Someone ...? sent [the note] to the East Coast Grill, with a box of beer and a fish skeleton ... then - by 6:15 as retaliation (they must have thought it was us - how dare they!?!) the East Coast Grill delivered us the prize pictured in the attached photo with a bottle of Fernet..." wrote co-owner Rachel Miller Munzer.

Yeah, that'd be a pig's head.

If this is just the run-up, what will happen when the victor is announced? The time to vote for your favorite rabble rouser is now.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
