It is a rare occassion when I make two blog posts in a day but this is exciting news. The 4th Annual Amelia Island Chili Cookoff was announced today. Fernandina Beach has numerous events and festivals all year long but this is one of my favorites. Mark your calendar… February 20th!

Teams from restaurants, businesses and service clubs will be cooking chili for tasting and judging. 3rd Street will be blocked off between Center and Ash and each team has a booth. All of the chili will be cooked on-street starting at 9AM and will be available for tasting through the afternoon.
The Cookoff is on Third Street, right in front of the Green Turtle. They will be hosting the Karl Davis Band for some great blues on Saturday starting at 1PM and Face For Radio on Sunday afternoon. The live music really makes the Cookoff a fun event.
Nori-san, good friend and chef at the Green Turtle, was practicing his chili skills earlier this week and made some really tasty bear chili. I’m not sure if he will have anything that exotic for the but there are several categories for judging including Spiciest and Most Exotic Ingredients.
So, mark your calendars for February the 20th! This is a great opportunity for you guys who screwed up and didn’t do anything nice for Valentine’s Day. Pack up your sweetie, bring her to the Addison for a romantic weekend get-away and enjoy a weekend of Chili and great music.
