Chomp & Stomp 2009

Jeff and I headed to Cabbagetown for the Chomp and Stomp on Saturday. Our goal was to leave by 11:00 am. Gotta get there early to get the chili. We left about 11:30, parked on Chester and made our way over to the park.

We hit the restaurant chili first and Ria's was my favorite! Then we slowly made our way to the competitors chili. We got to Tye street about 12:30 and folks were out or running out. We were still able fill our bellies with some good chili and some not so good chili.

As we were making our to the Sweetwater beer truck. Jeff spotted a sign that said BBQ $5 and on the smoker I saw this...

and I wished I had not filled my belly with chili.

please don't put plastic in my diet

Monday I volunteered at Sweetwater Brewing Co. for a fundraiser for Green Plate . What is Green Plate? I pulled this from their website.
To the public, we provide products that aid in the reduction of single-use plastics. For restaurants and businesses, we provide resources, tools, products and training to reduce their environmental impact AND save green.

In the Pacific Ocean there's an area twice the size of Texas where the plastic to plankton ratio has been measured as more than 6:1. We now know 90% of marine trash is made of plastic - and 80% comes from land and local watersheds. Plastic is being mistaken for krill, eaten by fish, and is now entering our food chain.


Support this great cause by visiting their website and learning more about the Half Off Green program. Where you can get 50% off gift cards to local, green businesses.
