Hotel Vegas to Host Chili Cook-Off for All
Hotel Vegas is excited to host its new and improved Rotel Vegas event Sunday, September 5. Chili will be served, judged, and consumed by the masses. DJ Boi Orbison will be spinning all-country vinyl, along with other outdoor music performances. Whether entering the competition or tasting the chili, there’s something for everyone in store.
Each team competing in the cook-off will present a meat-based and a plant-based chili (everyone gets to try chili at Rotel Vegas). Teams will be judged by an esteemed judges panel in two categories: Professional Chefs and At-Home Cooks. However, Best In Show will be judged by the community. As a sponsor of this year’s event, Beyond Meat will be donating the plant-based meat for each team to use. Other partners like Segovia Produce will be donating pantry items for both entries.
This event is free, but to taste and judge the chili guests will need to purchase a $5 chili tasting kit. Each kit contains serving bowls, spoons, napkins, and hand wipes. Guests will place a token in the box of the team who they think should win Best in Show once they’ve had their fill of chili options. Guests are welcome to stick around after the winners are announced for a free after-party outside at Hotel Vegas.
Guests are also invited to donate to Southern Smoke, a nonprofit 501c3 foundation created to raise funds for charitable purposes, principally for support and assistance for those in the food and beverage community and their suppliers.
