Fans of chili, listen up. Martindale, Texas (southeast of Austin, east of San Marcos) is holding their fifth annual Martindale Dam Chili Cookoff on this coming Satuday the 10th. It's one of our favorite events because a) chili, b) live music from the likes of Mark Jungers and The Beaumonts and c) you can bring your own beer/liquor. Just be sure not to obey the speed limit in Martindale town limits. Chili judging is at 2p. Winners are awarded at 330p. Music runs most of the afternoon.
Saturday night, one of our favorite artists is playing a show at Evangeline Cafe in deep south Austin. Chris Wall is playing with Danny Britt and Marvin Dykuis at 10p.
We'll be there early and we hope to see you out as well.
