Eatin’ Chili

Y’all common down n grab a bite o grub!  The annual Texas Chili Cookoff is held every August.  This year it was on the west end at beautiful Brewers Beach where you can watch the planes take off and land from your comfortable seat in the sand.

The location has changed over the years and so has the chili.  Not the stuff the judges try, that has very stringent rules.  Over the past few years a lot of the contestants have added vegetarian or white chili to their ‘menu’.  Individuals, restaurants, and companies all vie for the chance to be the chili king of St Thomas.

There is also a costume contest.  Whichever booth has the most chili spirit gets an award as well.  The contestants for this particular prize form a parade and try to get more votes using their sparkling personalities.

    Karen Said,

    Afraid…never! I dont think FAA regulations will allow us to bring our winning chili on board a plane.
    Too bad for San Antonio. They will never know they are second.
