Cabbagetown plays host to a battle of the beans as residents and local restaurants compete to cook up the best chili and raise cash for the hip intown neighborhood. Last year, “Butt Stuff” trumped squads like “Gal Fieri’s Mayors of Flavortown” and “It’s Always Sunny in Cabbagetown” for the top prize. Come early, purchase a spoon (your “ticket” for chili tastings), and chow down with friends, neighbors, and strangers—or run in the 5K and listen to bluegrass. chompandstomp.com
