Just three days left until the First Annual Chili Jamboree at Mississippi Studios! RAIN OR SHINE, there will be:
Ten top local chefs (from Podnah's Pit and Smokehouse 21 to Tasty N Sons, Departure, and Castagna!)
Ten massive batches of chili, for you to judge!
Pie from The Honey Pot Bakery!
Live music by Memphis-based headliner Lucero, as well as Sturgill Simpson, Daniel Romano, Shelby Earl, and Mission Spotlight.
Doors at 2pm, Sunday, with voting at six PM on the nose. Word on the street is that there will be one vegetarian chili, although as of press time we can't put a name to the claim. These are some secretive chefs.
Please see our feature write-ups this week for full information about the festival.
Get your tickets here while they last. Sales volume as of this morning does strongly forecast a sellout.
The first annual Chili Jamboree is thrown in cooperation with Mississippi Studios, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and meat purveyor Nicky USA
