XFS #62 “Anarchy”
Launched in 2005 by Boise-based Knockout Promotions, the Xtreme Fight Series continues with its 62nd installment, “Anarchy,” in which 24 professional MMA fighters swarm CenturyLink Arena, fists bared and eager for glory. The octagon will quake under the added pressure of four championship bouts, including an XFS Heavyweight title brawl between champ Colton Vaughn and challenger Joe “The Bull” Ramos. On the women’s side, the spotlight shines brightest on Karly Black and Lindzy Florez, two undefeated fighters who will attempt to pummel each other into their primordial state—piles of protein powder.
2013 Chili & Salsa Fest
What makes a chili recipe the best there is? The judges at this year's Chili & Salsa fest will have to figure that out for themselves as they award entries of chili—and salsa—in this year's competitions. At Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park, the scents of fall food mingle in the air, making it tricky for patrons to decide whose wares to sample. And as evening comes on, so does the crowd, as the event shifts to watching college and NFL football on the big screen.
