About last night.

Oh ok. There was a chili cook-off at my place yesterday. I did a really poor job of inviting people (which culminated in me calling people up on Sunday afternoon and awkwardly inviting them over in 40 minutes) and am a little embarrassed about it. I basically invited everyone that commented on the chili cook-off post plus one or two others that I had recently emailed with using my gmail account. I haven't slept in a month, and forgot to invite a lot of bloggers that I would've loved to have seen there. So, I'm sorry.

The winner was probably Ken, though I thought all the chilis were fantastic (Jessica, Judith, Oschisms, Young Curmudgeon all made meat chili while the blogless Warren and I made the veggie kind). After everyone went home, Peter told me that he thought Oschism's chili was the best, but didn't want to offend anyone. Ken was a little alpha-male so that may explain some skewing of exit polls in his direction. :-) Ari made the best cupcakes ever and girlfriend of the Young Curmudgeon made a heavenly pecan pie. Lisa brought over some phenomenal guacamole and awesome corn bread. Girlfriend of Oschisms (aka 'Alarming News commenter Vanessa') came through with the salsa. Steve Silver, Paul and Ivan Lenin were there in a tasting capacity. It was a feast. We'll definitely have another some time soon, or at least a drinkfest blogger party in a bar, and I'll do a much better email invite job then.

Update: Ken's take.

Update: Jessica's take.

Is anyone else with me that Ken and Jessica are either going to kick each other or make out when they next see one another?

Mmmmm, pecan pie.

PROBABLY WON? What the hell is that about? You been hanging around Dawn Summers and the Democrats too long. Why not just call for a recount. And alpha male? Hmph. Next time I'll come with a beard and a flannel shirt. THEN I'll show you alpha male.

I've read the reviews, the comments, the recaps, the recipes - and the pregame trashtalk in the emails.

Next time I'm coming to town with chili in tow and you are all going down hard.

I hope I start getting invited since I'll be moving to the Upper East side this month. 82rd & 3rd area.

I still had the Bush bumper sticker on when I moved boxes in yesterday. A lady walking 2 dogs harumphed at me. I smiled my victory smile. And for a moment, I imagined myself some highly-paid member of the adminstration moving into an abandoned apartment of some Dem who was fired.

you forgot to mention shaved.

I thought Ken's was the best, alpha or no alpha.
You forgot to mention that you taught several of us how to play Texas Hold 'Em.
Lovely party! Thanks for letting me invite myself.

In retrospect, I should've added fewer red bell peppers, more cumin, and left the ribs in the jalapenos to increase the heat. Maybe more cayenne pepper, too.

Even so, it still wouldn't have come near Ken's chili. That stuff was the best.

Did I read this right? "Chili" with sugar in it won a chili cook-off? Did you play "Yankee" Hold'Em afterward?

Slanty, you're movin' from my 'hood?

Put me down for the next git-together...next time y'all do chili I'll bring my special Southern recipe...years in South Carolina did more than make me a conservative!!!
