Central Chili Cook Off


Please join us for ABC's annual Central Chili Cook Off on October 29th at ABC's facility in North Little Rock! Members may enter a team for a chance to have their chili judged or you can just come out for all you can eat and drink! All members, prospects, and guests, come enjoy a night of good food and networking! 


ABC submitted a plan to the Arkansas Department of Health and we have received approval for 29 teams and 250 attendees!


We will also have the Delta Biscuit Company food truck on site for the first time this year for any attendees that can't take the heat! They will have a limited menu available that will include their signature dishes, drinks and dessert items!


Please note that there will NOT be a Baggo Tournament at this event as we are taking extra safety precautions.
