Chili Cook Off for Friends of Franks!

June 28, 2018 all-day

We’re signing up chili cook off teams but still have a few slots open – and we need judges (tasters). Join us at Santa Canela on July 28 from noon to 2:30 for some great chili and a good time. The entry fee for chili cookin’ teams is $25. And it’s only $10 ($15 at the door) to enjoy the chili, along with corn bread and Texas sheet cake for dessert. To register your cookin’ team or buy advance judging (tasting) tickets contact Sharon.
