The yearly chili extravaganza isnt just an excuse to sit in the sun all day, downing beers and listening to country music though that is as good an excuse as any. No, the winner of the hotly contested event actually qualifies to enter the 2008 World Championship Chili Cookoff, held in Omaha, Nebraska. Therell be more bubbling cauldrons than in any J.K. Rowling novel, so head down at 8:30 a.m. Sunday to sample some of the goods and listen to tunes from Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, Taylor Swift, and the special chili hostess, Jewel. Tix will run ya $40, or $45 at the door. Visit www.wkis.com.
