Vegan Chili Cook-Off Fundraiser at Hop Street Lounge

Warm the hearts of adoptable pets while warming your belly.

Here’s a neat event for those that love meatless chili or want to show off their meatless cooking skills, too.

Hop Street Lounge is hosting a Vegan Chili Cook-Off and fundraiser for Tucson CARES from noon – 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 11.

It’s heartwarming to know you’ll be providing comfort and support for savable cats and dogs that are homeless in Pima County. In turn, your loving contribution will be rewarded with several vegan chili samples, and an opportunity to vote on your favorites.

While you’re not eating, head over to the bar for one of the 34 rotating taps or to the eight-door refrigerator that’s stocked with bottles of wine and mead, seltzers, cold-brew coffees, and 700 different selections of canned beer.

Tickets are at $10 per person and that’ll get you one round of samples. If you’d like seconds, it’s just an extra $2. You can also enter the cook-off if you’re feeling competitive.

Don’t forget to vote, too. There’s going to be plenty of savory samples of chili to taste, so let them know which one is your favorite.
