Some Like it Hot Chili Cook-Off

The 10th Annual "Some Like it Hot Chili Cook-off" returns to Harvard Square on Saturday, February 3rd - a precursor to the Super Bowl! Join us for this fabulous, festive and free outdoor winter event. There is bound to be a chili for every palate, from vegan to super spicy and of course, traditional chili. 

Indulge in samples of chili from Harvard Square's hottest restaurants between 1:00p - 2:00p at the Brattle Plaza (in front of Brattle Florist, 31 Brattle Street) in Harvard Square. Taste them all and then vote for your favorite! The restaurant with the most votes will be presented with the highly coveted Harvard Square Chili Pot!
