Three words: Charity. Chili. Showdown.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m always in for fun with food and fundraising! Throw in a little healthy competition, and I’m sold. That’s all I needed to hear when I was asked to be on the guest panel of judges for this exciting event.
It’s an Old Town Showdown (hey, that kinda rhymes!), happening March 21 at Augie’s Mussel House & Beer Garden! From 4pm – 6pm, four local Alexandrian cooks will be competing for the Chili Championship title with all proceeds benefiting Feed It Forward DC. Voting will be conducted by a judge panel (that I’m so excited to be participating on) and the winning chili will be awarded a championship trophy!
The $45 entrance ticket includes a tasting of each competing chili and the following:
Augie’s and Feed It Forward have set a goal to raise $10,000 with this event. For tickets, follow this link to the Old Town Chili Showdown ticket page

. If you’re a fan of friendly competition in the name of fundraising for charity, I hope to see you there! This event is going to be ‘hot hot hot’ and I can’t wait to try these chili recipes from the chefs of my Old Town favorites. Will I see you there?
