Firehouse chili

Posted on March 9, 2016


Regular readers will have noticed that I have a soft spot in my heart for firefighters, mostly because I raised one.  Partly, though, it’s because they show up to do work worth doing when we most want it done.  All of this is a prelude to inviting you to the the  Torch Lake Fireman’s Association 3rd Annual Firehouse Chili Cook-off.

Becky Norris and I had a wonderful time at the First Annual Chili Cook-off. As near as I can tell, so did everyone else in the room.  It was waaaay better than a political caucus.

  • You can come for free.
  • You can taste all the different chilis for free and vote for your favorite. There will be drinks, sides and desserts, too.
  • No one will yammer at you to vote for Chili X, or make snide remarks about Chili Y.
  • There will be youthful firefighters and their families.  There will be cute little kids!
  • There will be a raffle.  The raffle is the one thing that is not free, but based on previous experience, the prizes will be excellent and tickets priced very reasonably.

I don’t see how you can go wrong.
