It would be easy to crack an off-color, juvenile joke relating to the fact that an organization that calls itself "Big Muddy" is holding a chili cook-off, but we're far too classy for that sort of thing. Instead we'll just give you the rundown, which speaks for itself: performances by the Rum Drum Ramblers, the Hooten Hallers, Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost, the Griddle Kids, Trio Project, the Royal Smokestacks, the Skekses, the Hobosexuals, Lonesome Cowboy Ryan & Banjo Kellie, Chris Baricevic and Jack Grelle. Sponsorship by Stag and PBR (not to mention KDHX [88.1 FM]) — and chili, by the bucketful! The measly ten-dollar cost of admission buys you a full stomach and a full day of excellent music; what's not to like?

Beware the Bathrooms: Nah, come on, we're not making those jokes, remember?
