Good Causes: Saint-Ex Chili Cook-Off

Sticking around town this weekend? On Monday from noon to 4 p.m., head over to Café Saint-Ex for a Memorial Day Chili Cook-Off. All proceeds will benefit Ross Elementary School's cafeteria.

Contestants will put their chili up against Saint-Ex and Bar Pilar's culinary best. (I'll be there stuffing my face with chili as one of the judges choosing the cook-off winner.) For guests, a $5 donation gets you a cup of chili of your choice and Peroni drink specials. For the kiddies, there'll be a lemonade stand and face painting, both for a $2 donation. The restaurant will also raffle off two AC Milan-Chelsea soccer tickets in Baltimore (food, drinks and round trip transportation included) for a $5 donation.

Saint-Ex will be also be open for lunch service.
