How do I do the chili tasting?

... with a spoon.

Last year, we tried it. This year, we're ONLY doing passports.
(No single tickets) We're hoping that the passports allow folks to get to more chili faster. (less time standing in line, and easier purchasing). Three levels of passports available:
$10 for 25 tastings
$5 for 10 tastings
$3 for 5 tastings.
There will be over 30 chili tastings this year; ranging from ridiculously spicy, to vegetarian, to meat, chicken or all bean versions. This is a competition. We have a panel of judges who taste them all. But your vote counts, too. Ballots will be available day of, or you can print one from this site the day before.

They're also being PRE-SOLD at some very friendly businesses; Banana Factory Gift Shop, HomeBase Skate Shop, Cleo's Silversmith Studio and Cutter's Bike Shop. And they're available to buy RIGHT NOW.

You can share a passport. AND.... if for some reason, you don't use up your passport by 2PM, you can use it NEXT YEAR! No harm, no foul.

If you really want to taste as much chili as possible, start directly at noon at any of the locations. (Map should be up next week). Chili is only served until 2PM. Some locations end earlier than 2PM, if they run out of chili.

nom nom nom nom.... (mmmm. Chili.......)

  1. Being able to keep unused passport tastings until next year is a nice addition. Last year I purchased enough tickets to try each of the Chili offerings but since so many ran out of chili long before 2 PM I went home with more than 10 unused tickets in my pocket. I hope participants plan for the crowd size better this year and make more chili. Some places ran out incredibly quick.
