Annual Chili Cook-off

Join us for the 2014 RPCV Chili Cook-off on Saturday January 25th from 5pm-8pm. If you’ve never made chili before in your life NO PROBLEM, its not a contest. Well ok, it is, but a very friendly contest… Here’s some inspiration:

Please RSVP to by January 24th so we can get you the address. BYOB and please help us save the plastic trees by bringing your own bowl+spoon. Also a really great way to have chili tasting is to use a muffin tin:) And don't forget your awesome/inventive/non-conformist/delicious chili.

If you're looking to add some reading to your 2014 New Year's Resolutions, check out the RPCV Phoenix book club!  (Disclaimer: we're not particularly serious - if the book is good, we'll have a lively discussion, but if the book was a dud, we just hang out, drink wine and gab!)
We've set the books, dates, and locations for the first few months of 2014, so add them to your calendar and get ready to make some new friends.  These are typically the first Thursday of the month at 7 pm.  A couple of weeks before the date, we will post an event on this webpage so you can contact the host for the address.
