2nd Annual Chili Cookoff & Blues Extravaganza

August 9, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

| $35.00
Blues BBQ

Last year, you guys came, you feasted, and you helped us raise big money for the National MS Society.  To keep up with the sweltering DC temps, we decided to raise the thermostat and pair or annual cool blues tradition with a little spice.  Back by popular demand, we’re bringing back the duo of competitions for Best Chili and Best Baked Good (Sweet or Savory)!

Join us for live music, a chili throwdown from some killer competitors looking to claim the glory, a baking contest full of the sweetest treats imaginable, and all for a cause that is close to our hearts. Tickets get you unlimited tastes of chili, cornbread, dessert, cool beverages, smokin’ blues, and plenty of sass from Local MC and MS Ass-Kicker, Rick Franklin. All proceeds from the event will go towards the team’s fundraising for the Capital Challenge Walk in September.  Help us raise $15,000 and get closer to a cure.
