Saturday November 17th 2012 Giddy Ups, the little honky tonk in far south Austin {Manchaca} will be hosting a chili cook-off titled Thanksgiving at Giddy Ups. It’s their 8th one.

There will be live music on Friday and Saturday nights as well as camping. You won’t meet a nicer group of people than the crowd that hangs out down that way. When we lived in south Austin Giddy Ups was one of our favorite hang outs. Chili turn in is at 2pm and the fee is $15 with proceeds going to the American Kidney Foundation. Best bring your A game as you’ll be butting heads with Terlingua Grand Champion George Odom. We sampled the man’s bowl of red at our Scrumptious Chef Terlingua pop up at 3 Little Pigs this past Sunday and the man earned his victory.

Ol boy can flat cook.
