Carne Diem - Seize the Bowl of Chili!

The third annual Carne Deim chili cook-off street party is set for 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday – a cool event hosted by VI Marketing. The street party on Park Avenue between Broadway and Robinson will feature tents with chili served by some of the city’s best restaurants, a live roof-top concert by the Wise Guys (125 Park Avenue) with all net proceeds going to United Way of Oklahoma.
Scheduling conflicts have prevented me from going during prior years, but I hope to attend this latest party. VI Marketing has created a cool, annual festival, and Friday’s weather should be perfect.
A $10 donation will buy three bowls of chili and a drink. See you there!
