Fun, free and inexpensive events blogger

It's going to be a cold weekend and what better way to warm-up and have fun than attending one or both of these two events.  First, the annual "Chili Cook-Off" which benefits Best Buddies of OPRF High School is on Saturday, January 22 from 1 - 2pm.  Held at Whole Foods in River Forest, their team members will go head-to-head in the cook-off.  Cast your vote at this Free Event.  Then on Sunday, January 23rd, from Noon - 4pm, Healy's West Side, 7321 Madison in Forest Park is the host for a 20-contestant "Chili Cook-Off" which benefits Opportunity Knocks, a local non-profit which helps adults with developmental disabilities.  There'll be food, drink, raffles with a suggested $20 donation.  More info at 366-4277 or visit
