Texpatriate Productions Chili Cookoff 

A chili cookoff sounds like more of a south of the border affair, but this throwdown is aimed north. Veronica Russell (pictured) is hosting the fundraiser to support a Canadian tour of her one-woman show A Different Woman: A True Story of a Texas Childhood. Based on the once-banned autobiography of Gertrude Beasley (My First 30 Years), it chronicles Beasley's life from growing up with 12 siblings in a poor west Texas family to educating herself and traveling the world as a scholar. The chili cookoff has prizes for spiciest, best vegetarian and best overall chili. Admission includes all-you-can eat sampling while supplies last. To enter the contest, email texpatriateproductions@hotmail.com. Tickets $5. — Will Coviello
