The Annual Memorial Day Chili Cook Off at Cafe Saint-Ex needs volunteers to help with a variety of activities including set ups, the kids’ zone, the lemonade stand and ticket sales. This year’s Cook Off benefits Garrison Elementary School at 1200 S Street NW (you can also find the school on Facebook). You can sign up online to volunteer and a coordinator with the Garrison School PTA will contact you.
The annual event is sponsored by Cafe Saint-Ex and will be held on the 1300 block of T Street NW next to the neighborhood eatery. The event runs from 11 am to 5 pm Monday, May 30. In addition to chili, there will be grilled hamburgers, a hot dog eating competition, live music, a kids area and a Peroni Beer Truck. We will have more details later this week.
Borderstan.com and Luis Gomez Photos are proud to be among this year’s sponsors. One of the chili judges will be Alejandra Owens. She writes about food and restaurants for Borderstan.com and at her own site, One Bite At A Time.
