Chili, Beer, and Firefighters

Chili, beer and firefighters go together like, well, chili, beer and firefighters. Get all three tonight at the 16th Annual Fire Chief Ale Chili Cook-off Competition at Rock Bottom. Twelve Chicago firehouses are teamed up with twelve Chefs from Chicago’s best restaurants to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. It’s only $10 for a bottomless bowl of chili, and another $5 if you want to pair it with a Rock Bottom Firehouse Ale.

Who picks the winners? A panel of local celebrity judges, and I’m one of them! Come tonight and eat some chili, drink some beer, and say thanks to those Chicago Firefighters.
