THIS WEEKEND: RED HOT CHILI -- WAY COOL NOV 5

 

November 1, 2011, (Lemon Grove ) -- The seventh annual Western Round Up and Chili Cook-off, sponsored by Lemon Grove Soroptimists, sends up a flare on Nov. 5. 
 

Such cayenne masters as Willie Tellez of Pro Drain Plumbing, lawyers Helen Zeldes, Airene Haeggquist and Amber Eck (sans suits and briefcases), and, of course, those heat-seeking champs from the Lemon Grove Fire Department will braise entire cows laced with habañera and cabanelle chilis--the kind that stopped scurvy in its tracks on Columbus's first voyage to the new world.
