Chili with a kick returns 

The Big Red Ball Charitable Foundation, the charitable arm of the Little Rock Kickball Association, once again presents Chili with a Kick from 10:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25 at Dickey-Stephens. Admission is $5; children under 12 get in free.

The main draw, of course, is a chili cook-off. Some 30 teams, vying for a number of awards, will offer samples on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Your idea of chili and our idea of chili might be quite different within Chili with a Kick's guidelines: "Chili is defined as any kind of meat or combination of meats (or vegetables) cooked with chili peppers, various other spices and other ingredients. So, that means beans and other fillers are allowed and encouraged! Vegetarian Chili entries are welcome!"

Also on the schedule: a jalapeno eating competition that begins at 2 p.m. For the kids (big and little), there'll be a bounce house, face painting, baggo and kickball. Plus, there's music scheduled all day.
