Contrary to what you might expect, the Stupor Bowl Heavy Metal Chili Cookoff
looks to be as rigorously refereed as the big game. Heres a few rules: All chili must be in a crockpot. No straight-arming DJ Foodcourt. All chili shall be given a heavy metal name. All parties must listen to see if half-time entertainers the Who are reckless and thrilling or simply pleasant and sort of sad. (Also: Will Dave Grohl be playing drums? Because we wouldnt be surprised if Dave Grohl were suddenly just there
, onstage, with the Who, playing drums). Actually, we made several of those rules up we stormed the field! but not the ones about the crockpot and the naming: Last year, Nordic Flesh Feast took home first prize. Behold, it was a white chili. Another real rule: You have to make four quarts of chili. To give you an idea, thats eight pints, the measurement strata where real chili-making, and Super Bowl drinking, begins.
Ezee Tiger, Hot Fog, DJ Foodcourt, and DJ Ice P serenade.
