Croquer: Free Chili 2010!
Organized by some Texans who know good chili, the Third Annual Free Chili promises some stiff competition and a whole lotta hotness!
I will have the honor of judging the contesting chili alongside Chris "CJ" Jacobson, who was a contestant on season three's Top Chef and is currently the chef at Santa Monica's The Yard, and Mackenzie Miller, a native Texan who was born into chili and also organizes the LA chapter of the Texas Exes.
All are welcome to try their hand at the chili competition, but forewarned though there are no ingredient restrictions, keep in mind these Texans are hardcore! "You can come with chicken green chili with white beans...but you get no respect. That being said, in 2009 a vegan chili placed 3rd in the fan favorites..."
Partaking in enjoying the chili is free and open to all, and what better way to spend a beautiful sunny afternoon on the coast? Austin's own Tito's Vodka is rumored to have a presence as well - Never a dull addition to a FREE chili fest.
More details on entering and attending can be found at freechili.org
Did I mention it's free?
