The event will benefit the Jubilee Center in Hoboken and is hosted at the Elks Lodge. Basically, it’s 4 fun hours of tasting chili and home-brewed beer with friends. Last year the event raised over $10,000 for True Mentors {another great organization in town}.


Chili, Chili, and more chili!

If you are vegetarian – there is good news! This year there will be a vegetarian category as well. Of course, no matter what your taste and diet preferences are, chances are you’ll need some of these:
