Hopefully, the wild Austin weather will put some chill in the air for some chili. Jo's Coffee plans to host its 15th annual Chili Cook-Off from noon for 3 p.m. Feb. 6 at 1300 S. Congress Ave.

"Amateur and professional cooks will come together in the battle over the prized chili pot, while attendees can enjoy an array of chili-related festivities such as watching the surprise Quickfire Competition, and listening to live music from Jeff Hughes & Chaparral," according to event organizers.

The annual Chili Cook-Off at Jo's Coffee returns in February.

Wristbands will cost $25 the day of the event in order to taste the goods, though entry to enjoy the music is free. Proceeds support nonprofit groups that address local hunger, according to organizers.
