Federal Hill Winter Chili Cook-Off at Metropolitan Feb. 27th

From the e-mail from Metropolitan's Bruce Dorsey, citing the competition organizer; I've been at this competition in past years, and it's a lot of fun and a nice way to explore the chili universe (like walking into Max's for a flight of 15 beer samples), and the money goes to a good cause:

Annual Federal Hill Winter Chili Cook-off!

This year's annual Federal Hill Chili Cook-off at Metropolitan will be at the upstairs bar on Sunday February 27th, at 6:30pm.  We once again will be raising money for the Christ Lutheran Center on Charles St - $5 at the door (additional donations welcome) for all you can eat chili and great beer specials, with all door proceeds going to Christ Lutheran's Shelter.  Last year's turn out was great and we hope to exceed the amount we are able to donate, but in an effort to make this event more fun for everyone we are going to limit the number of chili entries to 15 (last year we had 19, and the year before 20). 
I doubt they're seeking more entries--they'll probably get enough from their "usual suspects"--but if you want to come in "out of nowhere,"  email ncsugiantsfan@yahoo.com - with the name of your chili and what category it is in (meat or vegetarian).  Minimum entry six quarts or more.
