Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

I Like Chili

Written by Patti on August 30th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Festivals are prevalent in Atlanta. We have festivals for everything.

I, for one, happen to adore festivals. All those fun people, all the fun food and beverages. Maybe even a blue grass band!

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for some chili, in some chilly weather….

I could go for some chili....


All Ages are Invited to Enjoy Chili, Live Music, Games and Nonstop Fun

The 32nd annual Great Miller Lite Chili Cook-Off will once again be held in beautiful Stone Mountain, Ga., where more than 300 culinary teams from across the country battle for chili bragging rights. In addition to sampling chili, Brunswick stew and cornbread, guests of all ages are invited to enjoy live music from some of the nation’s best tribute bands and partake in games such as the Mullet Flop and the Jalapeno Eating contest. As in previous years, 100% of the proceeds will benefit Camp Twin Lakes, a network of camps providing life-changing experiences to thousands of Georgia children with serious illnesses, disabilities and challenges.
