Fiery flavors are on the menu at the fifth annual Queen City Chili Cook-Off. For one mouthwatering afternoon, Burlington nightclub Nectar’s transforms into an all-ages comfort-food tasting room as chefs set up their slow cookers and dish out samples of the one-pot meal. Attendees, along with a panel of judges, weigh in on their favorite recipes, and prizes reward the top culinary competitors in categories such as people’s choice, most creative and best overall. Live bluegrass tunes by the Tenderbellies top off this spicy soirée supporting the Burlington Fire Fighters Association.
Price: $5; free for kids 12 and under.
