Now you have plans for the weekend

You need plans. Fat City has a recycle bin full of event listings. In this post, all of our problems are solved.

It takes some time to make a good batch of chili and that’s why the Lenexa Chili Challenge starts on Friday night at 5 p.m. More than 100 teams are expected to compete in this year’s event, with the contest in Old Town Lenexa (corner of Sante Fe Trail Drive and Plfumm) starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday and winners being crowned at 4 p.m. Admission is $2 and there’s a chili hotline if you need more information — 913-541-8592. 

Don’t know your favorite beer? You can find one among the offerings from 70 breweries at the third annual KC Beerfest

on Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Legends at Village

West. Our recommendation: Make a beeline for imports Hitachino and

Black Sheep Ale. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
