The fundraising event, which starts wagging at 1 p.m., will feature twenty different chili tastings from amateurs as well as restaurant chefs, plus a silent auction and kick-ass beer specials. Its a great way to support our animals, knock back a few beers and warm up to some great chili, says MaxFund executive director Tricia Cominsky. The cook-off, which includes three cash prizes for the top contenders, will be judged by patrons, who will receive a tasting kit cup, spoon and ballot and, says Cominsky, some silly stuff, like Tums and mouthwash. The MaxFund adoption van will also be on site in case you want to take a furry friend home. For more info or to purchase tickets, go to www.maxfund.org or call 303-595-4917.
