Tame the beast within with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two general-admission tickets to the The Milwaukee Chili Bowl at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino’s Expo Center on Sunday, January 29 (up to a $30 value at the door, a $24 value for advance purchase). The event starts at 11 a.m. and lasts until 4 p.m. Admission includes:
- Eight three-ounce chili samples per person

Presented by MilwaukeeFood.com, Milwaukee Harley-Davidson, and the Horny Goat Brewing Company, The Milwaukee Chili Bowl cooks up a culinary carnival that presents more than 30 area restaurants vying to win the 2012 Golden Ladle Award with their more than 60 varieties of chili. Bellies will rumble like octuplets-expecting motorcycles as the aromas of vegetarian and meaty chilies waft through the Potawatomi Bingo Casino’s new Expo Center. Admission grants attendees eight three-ounce samples from their choice of local competitors, with molten meals from the likes of Red Rock Saloon, Saz’s State House, and Cafe Manna. Guests can dip complimentary bread sticks from Peter Sciortino’s Bakery into traditional chili or take taste buds into the depths of specialty chilies such as sweet potato, vegan, and seafood. Though not included in this deal, guests can indulge in libations at a cash bar, and though smoking is not allowed in the Expo Center it is allowed in the casino. This event includes free parking. The Chili Bowl’s spicy event also benefits Hunger Task Force, which aims to prevent hunger, malnutrition, and empty internal cookie jars.
