There’s no better remedy for the winter blues than a bowl of warm,homemade chili (or a few) paired with locally brewed beer—and the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre’s Fourth-Annual Chili Cook-Off promises just that and more. Event organizers are confident that the chili competition will, once again, be quite “heated” as local residents bring their best chili recipes to the table. A new venue, the Wolverine State Brewing Company, will offer samples of their unique specialty beers. Entertainment will include a live auction and local celebrity judges (including Gratzi’s chef John Fischer and food-blogger Mary Bilyeu). As a fundraiser for the Civic Theatre, all money raised at the event will help provide opportunities for everyone in the community to participate in and experience live theatre.

$20 chili/beer; $10 chili; $5 children (ages 5-10). Sunday, February 10. 2-5pm. 2019 W. Stadium Blvd. 734-971-2228. A2ct.org. —MO
