Today: Firefighters look hot, cook hot at Larimer Square

If you missed the kick-off party for the 2011 Colorado Firefighter Calendar -- what were you thinking?! -- you have a second chance to see hot firefighters, and taste some hot chili, too. From 10:30 a.m, to 2 p.m. today, the firefighters will be at Larimer Square for the annual Firefighter Chili Cook-Off, signing calendars and selling bowls of chili to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
