MacChilifest: A Spicy, Cheesy, Beefy Event for Super Bowl Sunday

There will be so many super bowls of awesomeness at MacChilifest 2015!

MacChilifest is taking over the Bedford Middle School in Westport on Super Bowl Sunday, 2/7, from 11-3 . . . and you’re invited. Well, we’re going to use a stronger word than that. We’re demanding you come on down to check out this contest because it’s going to be a great way to kick off the start of that classic, much-anticipated game. Or, if you don’t care about football, it’s an excuse to just stuff your face with some killer chili and mac & cheese.

In fact, we’re talking about 20 different tastings of chili and mac & cheese from some of the area’s most well-known restaurants and even local fire departments. It’s good they’ll be there, cuz things are bound to get hot as the competition heats things up! Categories this year include Classic Beef, Creative Chili, and Mac & Cheese . . . and you get to pick the winners by eating and voting.

Last year the winners were Geronimo, Southport Brewing Company, and the Westport Fire Department, but will they be able to stay on the top with so many other restaurants thirsty to take their place? Places like the Blind Rhino, Bobby Q’s, Chef’s Table, Chilibomb, Da Pietro’s, DrewbaQ (food truck), Little Pub, Liquid Lunch, Mac’it, Old Post Tavern, Sam’s American Bistro, Simply Delicious, Tru North Tavern & Table, Wire Mill Saloon & BBQ, and the Weston Fire Department want first place BAD!

Tickets are already on sale and are priced at $15 per person or $5 for kids ages 6-12.
