What are your plans for the weekend, Borderstanis? If you’re coming up short, I have something for you! The Memorial Day Cafe Saint-Ex Annual Chili Cook Off!
Borderstan.com and Luis Gomez Photos are among the cosponsors of the event, and I’ll be there judging the best chilis that chefs from local restaurants have to offer.
The annual event is hosted and 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.
There will be local bands playing music all day, a Peroni beer truck and a kids’ area for some family fun (because beer trucks and family fun definitely go together!).
All proceeds from the 2011 Chili Smackdown-Cook Off go to Garrison Elementary School at 1200 S Street NW; you can also find the school on Facebook.
Now to the most important part: the chili.
The annual Memorial Day celebration in Logan Circle Park is Monday, May 25. The statue in the circle is of Union Civil War General John A. Logan of Illinois.
