My favorite Fernandina Beach food event, the 7th Annual Chili Cook-off, was held yesterday. It was a well attended event with lots of fun besides the chili tasting. There were 3 bands providing music all day long. The event was held on two blocks of 2nd Street, right between the Palace Saloon and the Dog Star Tavern so there was opportunity for a frosty adult beverage to go with all the chili tasting.
Jaxon, the Jaguars mascot, was there along with one of the Jaguar’s cheerleaders courtesy of Jon at Halftime Sports Bar. Nothing says “Party!” like bagpipe music and Jaxon was getting right into it.
The smell of chili cooking inspired me to get back to the Addison and cook up a big pot of chili which we shared with our guests at Happy Hour. Good times!
