Some like it hot at The Caxton. On May 6, everyone will. Spicing up the long weekend, the Caxton Street watering hole is dedicating the day to all things spicy — think chilli dishes, chilli sauces, chilli spices, chilli jerky and just saying the word chilli so much that it'll lose its meaning.
Yes, Hothead Chilli Fiesta will get you all hot and bothered from 12pm, and in the tastiest possible way. In fact, there'll be no fewer than six chilli sauce merchants selling their wares, with chilli plants, chilli chocolate and chilli chocolate steamed puddings also on offer. Plus, The Caxton's kitchen will be pumping out a chilli-filled menu from, and an array of chilli-serving food trucks will be doing the same.
Of course, there's also the big event — the one that'll get your inner Homer Simpson running, screaming and seeing space coyotes. That'd be the chilli-eating competition, which costs $10 to enter. If you're keen, contact the venue to pay and register in advance.
