A chili tasting, provided by Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels, will take place between 5 and 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 13, at Lincoln Arena, at 1200 Parker Blvd.

“The chili tasting gives us an opportunity to connect with our community in a different way, and it is always our hope that we will be able to create new relationships to further our outreach impact,” said Dan Wiles, executive director of the Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels.

Also on Saturday will be a beer tasting, featuring Resurgence, at the DFK Pavilion, in front of Lincoln Arena, at 1200 Parker Blvd. The cost is $20 per person, and includes 10 tastings and a souvenir glass. The event is for ages 21 and up.

“Some of our flavors lie outside the realm of ordinary. Our brewers are creative guys and they love playing with tastes to see what translates from plate to pint and we hold ourselves to the highest quality standards,” said Resurgence Brewing Company CFO Chris Ware. “Come sample some of their unique beers with your friends right in your own neighborhood.”

Tickets must be purchased in advance at the Senior Center or Youth, Parks and Recreation main office.
