Chili Cook Off 2018

cdELEMENT 4th Annual Chili Cook Off!

Fall is Fabulous.

Fall is here. Fall is good.  Fall should be cherished by Chicago.  Fall is 8-12 weeks of crisp weather, excellent fashion, fun sports, and exquisite food medleys served up in Dutch Ovens and Crock Pots.

Four years ago, we set out to throw a Fall networking event that celebrated the creativity of our customers and expressed our gratitude for their friendship.  A Chili cook off was a no brainer!

But we missed another obvious no brainer.  Feed the Hungry.

This year we will be passing the hat for your donations to the Chicago Food Depository.  Did you know over 90 cents of every dollar they receive ends up in someone’s empty tummy?

Connealy Design Element will also contribute a buck for every person that attends the event.

Details on the event are below.  Please come and celebrate our uniquely wonderful industry.  You will be helping the hungry just by showing up.




Once again, the Chicago A&D community will compete for Chili Glory!

This year’s event will be back at The Flat Iron in Wicker Park.

Some of Chicago’s top A&D firms are entered and ready to compete.  All chili entries will be anonymous, so get ready for some surprises! 1st and 2nd place will be decided by POPULAR vote, so come support your friends and their tasty food. Is your firm not signed up?  No problem, come to party anyway! There will also be a fantastic DOOR prize surprise!

Doors and bar open at 6pm. Voting ends at 7:30pm. Awards at 8pm.

Network with the design industry and local furniture dealers, taste great chili, and enjoy free drinks until 9pm.  We will also have unlimited pool, darts and classic video games for some additional healthy competition.

We had over 250 people attend last year and many have said it was the party of the year!  We hope you can join us.
