It may have been rainy and muggy out today, but it was chili all afternoon in Hugh McRae Park. Saturday afternoon marked the area’s 21st annual chili cook-off. Nine of the area’s top chili chefs cooked-off to benefit the area’s Domestic Violence Shelter. Attendees sampled chili from all nine contenders and voted on the recipe they liked best. “I ate a sample cup from every station and I drank about a beer per cup,” said Chad Dillard, a self-proclaimed chili lover who attended the event. “That's usually how it works--one cup of chili, one cup of beer. It equals out pretty good.” Attendees voted the Chili from Fat Tony’s in downtown Wilmington to be this year’s best.
