Eco-Friendly Bar Hosts Vegan Chili Cook Off

Bottle-free bar and restaurant Tony’s Darts Away is hosting its first annual vegan chili cookoff in honor of National Vegan Month.

Burbank, CA establishment Tony’s Darts Away, a bottle-free, low-waste bar and restaurant, is hosting its first annual vegan chili cook off in honor of National Vegan Month. On November 11 from noon to 6pm, seven local chefs on five teams will face off and serve their best fare to a panel of judges comprised of Vegetarian Times editor-in-chief Elizabeth Turner, LA Weekly food blogger and critic Garrett Snyder, and local vegan blogger Quarry Girl. The public will also get a say—those who purchase tickets will receive five three-ounce tastings and a vote. Competing chefs include vegetarian cookbook authors Alex Brown and Evan George, Tony’s executive chef Randal St. Clair, and winner of the 2009 Malibu Chili Cook Off Nic Adler.
