Well I missed the actual chilli at the Tipped Chilli Cook off yesterday unfortunately, but I did make it in time to watch Joel destroy the Sarah Palin pinata! Quite a sight, seeing a yard full of people tequila-toasting Tipped, chilli, and Joel as he took to Palin with a baseball bat. One of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time, Sarah eventually made it onto the BBQ where she was formally sacrificed to tequila fuelled flames to another cheer.
The was the first, of a sure-to-be repeated event, pitching ten chilli-chef teams against one another in a blind taste test. I bumped into Chris who had been competing and was in time to see Helen win the top prize. It was held at the super-cool Mucky Pup pub which I’d not been to before and is well worth a visit in itself, I can see why it’s got such loving reviews.
Good times had by all, and even had my first tequila in ten years and survived – especially considering it was about 4pm, I’m awarding myself some kudos for that.
Big thanks to lovely Charles & co.
