On Saturday November 19 the Portland Mercury will team up with White Owl Social ClubJim Beam, and Nicky USA to bring you the 4th annual CHILI JAMBOREE! Together we're bringing you spicy, savory, slow-cooked chili from a dozen of Portland's best celebrity chefs, and adding boot-scootin' country music—and we mean the GOOD kind of country—for a party your mouth and ears won't ever forget. Taste 'em all, then vote for the chili champ, who'll be awarded the highly coveted Chili Belt. There's also beer and cocktails! This is WHY you live in America.
