Team chili cook-off team building event at downtown San Antonio meeting space.


Chop those onions, pinch that salt and stir those beans. But remember to leave a little time to relax. Take a moment to have one of several beverages we’ll be serving, or enjoy a moment or two (or more) with our trick roper/story teller/gun slinger. But don’t try to pull anything funny, partner! Our Marshall and his Deputies will be patrolling the corral, insuring fairness and keeping things moving at a slick Texas pace. And when it’s over, they’ll hand out the prizes for the best darn chili this side of the Rio Grande!
