It’s Hot, Hot, Hot…..Chili Cookoff! October 15, 2017

The Island Time Tavern and The Emerald Isle Parrot Heads are teaming up for a Charity Chili Cook-off on Sunday, October 15, 2017. We are in search of the best “Chili Cookers” that Emerald Isle has to offer and of course some lucky “tasters” to choose the “Chili King or Queen”. Bring your best pot of chili and help us raise money for cancer research!!  There is a $10 Entry fee for chili makers and a $5 fee for tasting!! The tasting is fantastic (especially when paired with a cold brew)!! The winner of this year’s event will receive a plaque and a $50 Island Time Tavern gift certificate!! Bragging rights also will be allowed for one year!! So dig deep for that secret family recipe or invent something new. You will need to bring your entry in a crock pot and bring your own ladle for serving. Chili entries must be at Island Times Tavern by 12:30 and the Tasting begins at 1:00. See you all there!
