For the 19th year in a row, one of Alameda’s long-standing service clubs, the Kiwanis, will host its Chili Cook-Off and Barbecue fundraiser this Saturday, Jan. 27, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. The event offers plenty of fun and feasting, especially for those with a discerning palate for chili. Vote on the best chilis from many local entrants from 6 to 7 p.m. before an all-you-can-eat, back-40, Texas-style barbecue dinner. Dance in Western attire and help the Kiwanians further their mission to support those in need at the silent auction or in the raffle. Tickets are $75 for adults, or $40 for kids 5 to 12. Get tickets at or by calling 523-6341.
