If you are planning to attend the Chili Cook-Off on the Commons today, and are driving, we recommend taking the first parking spot you see.
Mild weather has brought the crowd to extravagant size.
The Chili event always does well, anyway, with Ithacans mad to conquer unfriendly weather getting together to eat outside in February.
There is plenty of music, and tabling by do-gooder groups, along with the food and drink.
Autumn Leaves Books has a live mannequin display of members of the roller derby Suffer Jets posing in the front window.
The Jets are promoting merchandise to fund the team. It's on sale at Angry Mom Records, in the basement of Autumn Leaves, which is also the new home of Small World Music, which is also the home of Ithaca Blog.
Stop in and see us!
