Sample the Area’s Best Chili While Supporting Independent Radio
W MSE 91.7 FM radio, a nonprofit, listener-supported radio service educationally licensed to the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), will hold its 16th annual Rockabilly Chili Fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., March 11, at MSOE’s Kern Center. The popular competition pits over 50 of Milwaukee’s most renowned restaurants, cafés and caterers against one another to determine the city’s best chili, as voted on by event attendees. Awards are given to winners in five different categories: best meat, best vegetarian, most unique chili, best heat, and best vendor display/presentation.
Returning event activities include the chili pepper races in the mold of Miller Park sausage races, a kid’s area and music. The $12 advanced admission includes four chili samples. Additional chili sampling tickets can be purchased at the event for $1 each. Attendees that bring two or more non-perishable food items to donate to the Hunger Task Force will receive two additional sampling tickets.
WMSE has served southeast Wisconsin since 1981 with diverse musical programming. The on-air staff consists of community volunteers specializing in the genre featured on their respective programs. The station broadcasts from MSOE’s downtown campus.
Cost: $12. Location: 1245 N. Broadway St., Milwaukee. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit WMSE.org/calendar/16th-annual-rockabilly-chili.
