Chili Cook-Off

If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, head to the Arboretum of South Barrington for its second annual Chili Challenge! There’s nothing better to do on a cold winter day than warm up with a bowl of chili! Not to mention the challenge proceeds will benefit Gigi’s Playhouse of Hoffman Estates, the local chapter of a national organization of Down syndrome awareness and educational centers.

Guests at the Chili Challenge will be escorted by trolley to each chili tasting and are encouraged to join a panel of guest judges in rating chili recipes from participating restaurants which include: reigning champion Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant, Pinstripes – Bowling, Bocce, Bistro, L’Eiffel Bistro & Creperie, Potbelly and Nozumi Japanese Cuisine. Each restaurant will add their own ‘flair’ to their signature chilis.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Details include: Where: The Arboretum of South Barrington 100 W. Higgins Road South Barrington, IL 60010

When: January 29th from 1-3 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased here.

Hope to see you there!
