Los Angeles Chapter Chili Banner

In March or April, we host our annual Texas Chili Showdown where teams put their chili recipes to the test in a competition of deliciousness.

The first handful of years we held our annual event at Mr. Pockets in Manhattan Beach. In 2014 - 2016 we held it in the parking lot outside Big Wangs in Hollywood.  On a side note, in 2016 runners from a marathon in the area stopped by and took pictures in front of our chapter's step-and-repeat. This year, we have decided to go back to where we first held our signature event - 2nd Half (formerly Mr. Pockets).

In some years, we even found some celebrity judges:
