Feeling a bit chilly? The Penticton Art Gallery has just the thing (pun intended!)

The Art Gallery is bringing back the Loving Mugs Chili Cook-off for its second year.

The second year of the Loving Mugs Chili Cook-off is coming back to the Penticton Art Gallery. The fundraiser will run on Feb. 21, from 6:30 until 9:00 p.m. Diners will not only get access to chilis from ten different restaurants and groups, but also a souvenir cookbook and their own handcrafted mug.

“There are over 200 mugs, each one unique and different,” said Antonella de Michelis, head of programming at the gallery. “They’ll be on display through the day of the fundraiser, so people can have a chance to come in and check them out, and find which one they like the look and feel of most.”

Last year saw ten restaurants and groups compete for the best and most popular chili, including Brodo Kitchen, Cannery Brewing, En’Owkin Centre, Monday Night Dinners, The Nest and Nectar, and Smuggler’s Smokehouse. A number of those groups have already signed on to return for this year.

The chili event is one of the many events the gallery puts on during the year to raise funds for their programs and artists.

“It was a wonderful event. It started out as a spin-off from the Soup Bowls, which is much beloved and has been running for 22 years,” said de Michelis. “It’s just wonderful to see all the local restaurants here supporting the gallery.”

Tickets are available now, either by calling the Art Gallery at 250-460-3066, or by picking them up in person. Prices are $40 for non-members of the Art Gallery, and $35 for members.
