If you didn't go, you better be dead or in jail. This year's Chilibowl was just about perfect. This was, by far, the biggest Chilibowl yet. Huge turnout. From the looks of the crowd, lots of Dolores Park locs were on Lurker Hill overlooking the park. Potential Halloween costumes and/or those that look like they were in a thrift store explosion were everywhere. I'm not much for contests in general but this is the only one I make a point of attending every year. Hats off to Toad and Salmon for putting it all together. Also, thanks for having it at Potrero again this year and not Crocker Amazon. I didn't get good shots of everyone, just some of my personal faves. Good times.
Eric Shea killing it with his "Chili con Barney". Check the McGill sticker, patron saint of all Barneys.
He actually stayed in character all day. Keep an eye out for his Concrete Wave interview soon.
