Chili is one of those foods that nearly everybody loves, but there are so many different varieties of it.
It can be made with or without beans. It can be made with beef, chicken, turkey, pork and even vegetarian. It can be mild or spicy.
Well, regardless of your fave, if you love you’ll want to attend the 2nd Annual Orlando Chili Cook-Off at Blue Jacket Park in the Baldwin Park community.
The event, which takes place tomorrow, February 26, will feature live music, a kids zone, and of course, lots of chili samples. Yum!
Tickets are $7 in advance, or $10 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free. Gates open at 11am, with all proceeds benefiting Special Olympics of Florida.
The weather tomorrow is supposed to be really nice, so it’ll be a perfect day to head out and eat some delicious chili for a good cause (and I don’t mean your taste buds).
It’s not St. Patrick’s Day, but if you feel like getting a bit o’Irish on, then you’ll definitely want to check out this weekend’s first annual Feile in Baldwin Park.
This Irish Music and Culture Festival is taking place Saturday, November 20, 2010, at Blue Jacket Park, located in the Baldwin Park neighborhood of Orlando.
Local Irish pubs will be serving up food, as well as drink specials like $5 carbombs and Guinness pints.
Entertainment will come via bands like The Young Dubliners, Off Kilter and more. There will also be a “Little Leprechaun” kids zone for the little ones.
The event runs 1pm to 10pm. Admission is $10 in advance and tickets can be bought at Paddy Murphy’s (Baldwin Park), Liam Fitzpatrick’s (Lake Mary) and Hagan O’Reilly’s (Winter Garden). Tickets can also be bought day of at the gate for $15, or $10 with a can of food to donate to the Hope Foundation. Children under 13 are free.
This Feile (pronounced Fay-La) sounds like it could be fun.
