On June 10, things are getting hot in Bulimba. Tongue-tinglingly hot. Face-meltingly hot. Homer Simpson running, screaming and waving his hands around hot. That's what happens when you spice up your Sunday with a chilli festival, after all.
Adding some zest to Brisbane, the Bulimba Golf Club is hosting the Briz-Chilli Fest from 10am. There'll be more than 30 stalls offering chilli galore, and not just in food form. Of course, there'll be enough edible hot hot heat to help you turn several different shades, but that's just part of the chilli fun. Chilli beer and chilli cocktails will all be on offer, as will a chilli dog contest — which doesn't involve eating, but rather dressing up your four-legged friend in a chilli costume. Basically, you'll be saying the word chilli so much that it no longer means anything.
The full lineup of activities also includes a hot wing-eating comp, a chilli cook-off, live music, workshops and salsa dancing, with the event boasting spice on multiple fronts. Our tip, and one we think you'll need: remember that milk is a chilli-lover's best friend.
