Yippee-yi-oh-oy-vay! Who wouldn't trade Irish stew for a bowl of red? The third-annual community Kosher Chili Cook-Off at Tiferet Israel Synogogue takes place on March 17, St. Patrick's Day. All the koshered burners in the entire Metroplex have been secured for the event and pots of chili should be bubbling on all of them. There will also be a petting zoo, pony rides, a clown, and a DJ as well as other foods. Cooking starts at 8 a.m. and the judging is at 1:30. A third of the proceeds go to local educational beneficiaries. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for kids.
