We love San Antonio.
Yesterday, as part of Fiesta, San Antonio’s city-wide festival, an outfit called The Happy Foundation hosted the 2016 San Antonio Chili Queens Chili Cook Off at the Bonham Exchange, an old gymnasium that is a somewhat faded, once-epicenter for queer culture in Bexar County.
This has got to be the only 18+ chili cook-off in the state of Texas.
As the competition is welcoming to transsexuals (and includes a drag component) perhaps the Foundation feels the need to protect li’l Ray Ray’s naive eyes from the hurly burly of the affair?
Rachel Barrios-Van Os won first place with her “Mama Rue Rae’s Caliente” chili
The Chili Queens Chili Cook-off is in its 10th year as an event.
The event was presided over by Joan Duckworth, Chili Queen Commissioner.
