Chili cookoff at Alberni’s Kingsway

The annual Ty Watson House chili cookoff takes place at the Kingsway Hotel, with dinner ready for tasting between 6–8 p.m.

Pauline Arbanas from the Kingsway Hotel assures patrons that the chili prepared for this weekend’s Chili Cookoff will be homemade and delectable. The popular annual event is a fundraiser for Ty Watson House Hospice.

The forecast for this Saturday, March 24 is a little chili, but patrons at the Kingsway Hotel can warm up with a Ty Watson House Hospice fundraiser.

The annual chili cookoff takes place at the Kingsway, with dinner ready for tasting between 6–8 p.m. Tickets are $9.50 each and include chili tasting, salad, buns and dessert. Anyone who eats gets to vote on their favourite chili, says pub manager Pauline Arbanas.

Big Daddy brings live music to the stage from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. and there is a free shuttle service.

The Kingsway fundraises for the hospice year-round, running weekly meat draws and other events. “It’s a local charity and the money remains local, which I like,” Arbanas added.

The Kingsway is located at 3203 First Ave.
