LaVista Taste & Tailgate Chili Cook-off

Oct. 23 LaVista Taste & Tailgate Chili Cook-off Quality Brands, 13255 Centech Road 2 p.m., $30, 339.2078, lavistachamber.org Few comfort foods conjure warm memories of frost-covered windows and football on the television like a hearty bowl of chili. For those who don’t want to slave over a hot pot, trying to come up with the perfect blend of spices, veggies and meat, the LaVista Chamber of Commerce has a handful of area chili-istas doing the heavy lifting for you. Your ticket (which doubles as a fundraiser for the chamber) includes all the chili sampling you can stomach, plus beer tasting, snacks, games and prizes … plus, they’ll also have the Nebraska vs. Oklahoma State game on, as well as an appearance from the Omaha Nighthawks. Guests will be able to vote for their favorite chili, which means that one lucky winner will be crowned champion, while the rest will have all winter to stew over their loss and tinker with their recipe.
