I spent yesterday afternoon chomping and stomping around Cabbagetown where hundreds of like-minded folks tested out restaurant and civilian chili. Here’s my day in photos:
couldn't find a parking spot, although the sign said otherwise
walked through a dark, tatted tunnel for the love of chili
waited on a long line to purchase a coveted orange spoon
Hold on to your spoons!
took in the masses of people and chili stands
saw the guys from Noni's with colorful glasses
they served up a chicken chili = decent
steaming chili served in pitchers
long line of chili-slingers
The Vortex had OK veggie chili
teamwork at MetroFresh
reigning champs at Fox Bros.
Six Feet Under brought hush puppies
and plopped them on top of their chili
gotta use both hands for the hungry
round one completed
time for help from the antacid
dudes looking for some heat
interesting outfit choice, guys
but I'll still eat your chili
he didn't get the chili memo
neither did porky 😦
chili ran out quickly
at many stands
but many people were served
even the best chefs in Atlanta
Kevin Rathbun chugged a beer
and I met Kevin from Top Chef!
Honestly, none of the chili that I tried reached an awe-inspiring level but the event was super fun and the turnout was spectacular. A fun, fall day in Atlanta – come out next year!
