Hooray for fall!  Hooray for chili!  Hooray for Cabbagetown!  Hooray for Chomp and Stomp weekend!  (It’s really as simple as that.) 
One of Atlanta’s greatest festivals is this weekend, y’all!  :)
Here’s the Q+DD on Chomp and Stomp: 
Cabbagetown’s blue collar history is well-known in Atlanta.  Once an old mill workers’ neighborhood, the area now is more known for its trendy boutiques and bohemian lifestyle.  Chomp and Stomp combines Cabbagetown’s roots with traditional blue grass music and a chili cook off.  Enjoy the pleasant fall air and traditional music of the area while eating some competition-worthy chili.  If you are so inclined, there is also a 5k race that kicks off the festival. This event is just another reason why Atlanta is known as the hostess city of the South!
Timing: Saturday, November 5, 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
$$$: Only $5 per Spoon for Chili!
Location Info: Cabbagetown is WHERE, exactly??
Music Scoop: Let’s get our stomp on, shall we?!
2010 Winners: Chili Masters 
This is such a fun event w/ so much personality that you WILL NOT want to miss!  (Sadly, I’ve been out of town for it over the past two years…  Tragic.) 
But, here are a few of our pics from Chomp and Stomp ’09:
It’s supposed to be gorgeous this weekend, too!  Be there or be square, Atlantans.  And FYI, get there early – sometimes the chili runs out. 
Happy Chomp and Stomp weekend!

    My husband and our friend JT will be back again this year! They have two new chilis that they’ve been working on since Labor Day. I won’t be there because I’m still handcuffed to this stupid dissertation, so look for the booth with the Fraggles if you want to try some!
