Findlay Market is celebrating its 10th annual chili cook-off Sunday; that's a full decade of meat and beans. Labeled as the hottest chili cook-off in town, up to 30 chili enthusiasts are invited to compete for the coveted title of Chili Meister (that's German for master...FYI). 

The comp will take place in heated tents on Elder Street on the north side of the Market House and be judged by firemen from Engine Co. 5. First, second and third place will receive a cash prize: $100 for Chili Meister; $50 for Chili Monarch; $50 for Chiliologist. The winner automatically qualifies to compete in the All-Ohio Regional Chili Cook-Off held in September 2014.

In addition to chili, there will be live music by Anna and Milovan from noon-2:30 p.m., Christian Moerlein craft beer, free public tastings starting at 12:30 p.m. (until the chili is gone) and specials on chilis, coneys, spices and more from merchants. 

11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26. Limited to 30 contestants. Visit the blog at tinyurl.com/kqrmr2g for contest rules and an entry form. Deadline is noon on Friday, Jan. 24. findlaymarket.org
