So Excited for the annual Chili Cook Off downtown Kalamazoo this Saturday!I have been going to every chili cook off since I moved to Kalamazoo, so for the rookies here are some tips!

  • Bring some water and crackers. There is a lot of walking involved and the chili can  get really really hot!
  • Know where the bathrooms are! Coming from someone who has a very sensitive stomach. Always good to know when nature calls.

  • Be patient. The lines can get pretty long at some spots. Just remember there are 40 different businesses downtown this year competing in the cook off! So just find a shorter line!
  • Have fun, be hungry and I'll see you downtown this Saturday! For a full list of all the locations click HERE!
