Our suggestion for this weekend is pretty self-explanatory… so much so, in fact, that it can be broken down into three simple steps: 1. Go to Jo’s. 2. Eat chili. 3. Smile, because life is good. Austin’s beloved home of The Turbo and the “I Love You So Much” wall is hosting its 6th annual “Cold Blood” chili cookoff, with all the chili, live music and fresh air you can handle. The event kicks off at 11 am with free two-steppin’ lessons (no ‘g’ required), a bake sale, and of course, a metric ton of chili. $20 lets you taste all the entries. Dogs are welcome to the family-friendly outdoor event, which runs until 3 pm. Proceeds benefit the Lila Tenenbown Recovery Fund.
Saturday, February 4 from 11 am-3 pm; visit Jo’s website for details.
