Music City Chili Cookoff | Saturday, October 15

October 14, 2011

So, it’s Friday morning. You might be a little groggy because you were up late watching Jersey Shore. You MIGHT have just thrown back that a quadruple shot, sugar free, extra whipped cream (seriously, I’ve seen someone order that) coffee. You want this day to end quickly, right?

So you can get to the weekend? The glorious weekend – great weather, a little football, and sleeping in? Sounds good, huh?

If you’re looking to have a real good time this weekend, I’d suggest you join me at the 2nd Annual Music City Chili Cookoff on Saturday!

If the words “CHILI COOKOFF” didn’t get you excited…Here’s some plainly laid out reasons:

1. You get to taste a ton of chili made by some of Middle Tennessee’s finest! Not to mention, food blogger extraordinaire and all around awesome person, Erin, will be competing as well! You get to enjoy my chili, Erin’s chili, and we’ll probably take a picture of you eating said chili (because…that’s how food bloggers roll). Isn’t that worth the $5 admission price already?

2. Two words – BEER GARDEN (Yazoo). Another three words – APPLE PIE MOONSHINE (Ole Smoky Moonshine). I need not say more.

3. While you’re enjoying some chili, there’s also going to be wings, hot dogs, and Maggie Moo’s Mobile Slab (ice cream, yay!) And if you have kids, there’s a fun house!

4. A portion of proceeds go to charity – The Tennessee Literary Coalition and Community Shares. Check them out here.

5. There’s going to be live music!

You’re ready to come? Ok, great!

Here’s the event information:

WHERE: Event Pavillion at Centennial Park

WHEN: Saturday, October 15 @ 11 am – 4 pm

TICKETS: $5 general admission, $15 beer garden (6 8 oz beers, 2 shots moonshine), Kids under 6 are free!

See you there!

    Thanks for delicious taste Vivek! I could really get the smoky, chocolate-y flavor from your ancho chili powder. Delicious!

    So… I am still raving about your chili…. for me it was– by a mile– the BEST entry! It was clean and bright and the spice was just right… Oh I am a poet… hahaha.. No really are you sharing the recipe–because I cannot wait another year to have some of it again?Thanks so much for being a part of what was such a fun day filled with great folks and some pretty awesome chili!!!
