Gables Rotary presents inaugural chili cook-off

The Rotary Club of Coral Gables is presenting the inaugural Chili Cook-Off, "Chili Chillin'."  on Sunday, February 21. Members of the South Florida community will compete to see who makes the best chili. The club is hosting this event to raise money for its charitable projects, and to provide a fun event for the community. This will be the very first major Chili Cook-Off held in the City of Coral Gables. 

The event will take place from 2 to 6 pm at Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park which is located in downtown Coral Gables (2800 Ponce de Leon Blvd.). Contestants from local high schools, restaurants, and even fire departments will join in from around South Florida.

In the Open division, anyone is eligible to compete in two categories, best meat chili and best vegetarian chili. Prizes awarded will be trophies for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, as well as cash prizes. There will also be prizes given for the Best Decorated Booth, as well as The People's Choice Award where attendees may weigh in on their favorites. Winning teams will get cash prizes, and one trophy will be awarded to the best of each division to display for the entire year! Contestants will be judged by local leaders, as well as some local "celebrities."

The Chili Cook-Off is free to attend, and there will be tickets sold for those who want to taste the chili ($5 each). There will be entertainment for the whole family, with live music by "The Stiltsville" and "Funk Pedal," bounce houses, and other kids activities. Come out and enjoy the fun and the food and support the local "chefs". There will also be food and a variety of beverages for sale, including a beer garden sponsored by Concrete Beach Brewery.

To register as a chef and to reserve your booth space, please follow the information on their website: www.chilichillin.com, or call 305-441-8063. Deadline to submit your application is February 10.
