Portland's Best Chefs Face-Off Over Chili

The Mercury's second-annual Chili Jamboree promises big names and bold flavors this weekend.

Lardo, Departure, Podnah's Pit, The Woodsman Tavern -- they're all bringing their best batches of chili to the Portland Mercury's second annual Chili Jamboree Sunday, Oct. 5 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Mississippi Studios.

This year half the lineup is new, and even more chefs will be vying for the coveted "Chili Belt", so the event is divided into two stages: The "Afternoon Chili Jam" runs from 11 am. to 4 p.m. and includes Departure, Bar Bar, Kenny & Zuke's, Kim Jong Grillin, Podnah's Pit, and The Woodsman Tavern. In the evening, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Dick's Kitchen, Lardo, Radar, Smokehouse 21, Tamale Boy, and TILT take over the patio with their chili goodness. Vote for your favorite, listen to live music, and bring your Beano.

Tickets are $20, and you can get them here. Enter the discount code Chili2015 for $5 off.
