It’s been a cold winter. Your chili recipes should be perfected by now! Craig and Chris Ackerman and Ted and Gabi Blacklidge will co-host a Chili Cook-Off Competition. A chef who brings a slow-cooker with at least two quarts of Chili enters at no charge and will vie for Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice prizes. If you do not cook, please plan on a $10 cover fee (collected at the event) to contribute to the feast. Judges will be selected from non-cooking participants.  BYOB.
