Chili Cook-off Update

Many warm-hearted and well-fed thanks to all of the participants in this year’s Chili Cook-off! Some were brave enough to sample chilis and vote; some contributed through volunteerism; some threw caution to the February winds and tried their hands at wheel-throwing and handbuilding; and then there were those who toiled, boiled, experimented, and schlepped their chili contenders in crock pots to be judged by friends and strangers alike. The event grows in size and popularity ever year, and we are grateful to all of you for this.

We would also like to thank Longfellow Grill on Lake Street, Captain Ken’s Foods in St. Paul, our dear friends at Zipps Liquor, Sociable Cider Werks in Northeast Minneapolis, and our sweets conjurers at Mon Petit Chéri. We truly value your commitment to our clay community!
