For those needing to warm up a bit, there could not be a better place to go then the annual “Some Like it Hot Chili Cook Off” taking place this Saturday, February 2nd from 1-2:30pm in Harvard Square. Not only a great way to warm up, but a true treat for your taste buds. Sample chili from some of Harvard Squares best restaurants, but be warned, “traditional” chili will not be the only type of chili being served up. Variety will be the spice (pun intended) adding even more life to this event.
