Since Denver recently ranked No. 1 most dog-Friendly city in America, and I let you all know about dog-friendly restaurants, bars, coffee-shops and hotels, this event definitely goes hand-in-hand with that article.
MaxFund, Denver’s no-kill animal shelter and adoption center, will host its 22nd annual Chili Cook-Off, on Sunday, March 20th 2016 at The Celtic Tavern. Maxfund no kill animal shelter’s Chill Cook-Off event will bring together Chefs and novice chili cooks to battle for the title of best chili in town from 1pm – 3:30pm, followed by the chili winners reveal at 4pm.
Chili categories are Red, Green, White, Vegetarian and Celebrity Chef – a category created for local restaurants and chefs to enter their recipes. Contestants can enter their chilies for $30 each at: bit.ly/1P6iLYp. (Only 30 contestant spaces are available.)
Prizes (and bragging rights) will be awarded to winners in each category. Each chef will be provided a station for his or her chili, including a table, chairs, tasting cups, tasting spoons and signage.
The event is family friendly, and will feature door prizes, a raffle, drink specials and more.
Patrons can pre-register to taste and vote at the event for the discounted ticket price of $10, or register at the door for $15 ($5 for children 12 years and younger). All proceeds benefit the animals at MaxFund. Pre-register at: bit.ly/1P6iLYp
