Chili Today...

by

Spring forward, fall back into chili. OK, take this memory aid figuratively, not literally. No matter how much you might love chili, it's best to avoid diving into a vat of it. Autumn and chili do go hand in hand, and today is the prime day to hold hands with chili — again with the figurative — at the second annual Soulard Chili Festival. The festival and taste competition takes place on the parking lot of the Lift for Life Academy (1731 South Broadway; 314-436-2337, extension 203, or www.liftforlifeacademy.org). A $7 advance or $12 door ticket gets you a tasting card enabling you to sample all the chili varieties on offer from more than fifteen St. Louis eating and drinking establishments; there will also be other foods and a full range of drinks available (drink pass required; get the drink and chili pass for $15 to $20). Live music from Social Distraction and the Yoangelos will be on tap too. The Soulard Chili Festival runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
