Pechanga’s Fourth Annual Microbrew and Chili Cook Off
By Joe Martone
It seems that Pechanga is the place to get drunk this summer, as this is the second of its events to give microbreweries a place to shine. After you’ve spent the last of your life savings in the slot machines, head over to the Grand Ballroom where all your chili- and beer-based fantasies will come true. The Pechanga chefs are pulling out all the stops to make sure that you get the tastiest, spiciest, most gut-wrenchingly delicious chili of your life. If you need to recover from the damage done to your intestines, Pechanga has the science covered for you. Spicy chili (a strong acid) can be cancelled out by a strong base and there is no stronger base than a good beer. Satiate your senses by picking out your favorite drink from a large variety of microbreweries on site. Good chili, great beer and you learned something new about chemistry today. Maybe your luck is looking up already!
