So many food things this weekend, you won't know where to start!

  • It's time again for chili enthusiasts across the county to gather their spiciest ingredients for the annual no-holds-barred E. G. Simmons Park Chili Cook-off on Saturday, Feb. 25. I'll be judging again; wish me luck. For the sake of my stomach, I hope there will be less than 15 competing pots of the spicy stew. E. G. Simmons Park is located at 2401 19th Ave. N.W. in Ruskin.
  • Flan has a party of its own in Ybor on Saturday, Feb. 25. Sprawled across Centennial Park, the 9th Annual Flan Fest takes place in conjunction with the weekly Ybor City Saturday Market from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. The Flan Walk and Eating Contest takes place at 2. Forty contestants will be competing for the Top Flan in Tampa Bay. Judging begins at noon.
  • Eat, shop and help the Ruskin Woman's Club at its annual bazaar from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24-25 at 503 U.S. 41 S. The event features a baked goods sale of homemade cakes, pies, brownies and cookies. Cuban sandwiches, Spanish bean soup, collard green soup and black beans and rice will be available for purchase both days, beginning at 11 a.m. Of course, there will also be a large rummage sale of donated household items, jewelry, books, clothing and more. Sounds like fun.
