2016 Hashbrown Chili Cook-Off

Join Spudnik Press Cooperative at the 6th Annual Hashbrown Chili Cook-Off! Help us fight off the (hopefully) waning days of Chicago’s cold winter months with a hearty sampling of our favorite comfort food: chili. Spudnik Press will continue to represent with our “house chili” but the excitement lies in the rotating list of guest chefs vying for the coveted “Golden Ladle”.

This year’s contenders include:

Chicago ACT Collective
Chicago Art Department
Chicago Design Museum
Chicago Glass Collective
Comfort Station
Instituto Grafico de Chicago
Rohner Letterpress 

You can also expect some expertly curated adult beverages by Artisanal Imports, a custom line-up of tunes from a CHIRP Radio DJ, and the Spudnik presses up and running for some printmaking-inspired carnival games. We’ll also debut a special-commission, limited-run woodblock T-shirt design AND feature an exhibition of artwork created at Spudnik, available for purchase.

Each admission includes tickets that can be traded for chili tastes, drinks, and participation in games. Our VIP packages and Date Night packages boasting the best “bang for your buck” and additional tasting tickets can be purchased at the event.

General Admission: $12 Presale / $17 Door
VIP Package: $22 Presale / $27 Door
Date Night: $40 Presale / $45 Door
