Chef John Thomas of Madison's Pub is preparing to defend his crown at the 8th Annual Downtown Mount Clemens Fire and Ice Chili Cook-Off Pub Crawl Fundraiser.
The highly anticipated event will be held January 31st from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.
At 2012's cook-off, Madison's took their first ever win and title, as they were named the city's "Best Chili of 2012."
The competition is already heating up between participating downtown restaurants and bars, as they strategize and perfect their culinary creations in pursuit of the highly coveted title and winners crown.
Each year, Fire and Ice Chili Cook-Off Pub Crawl attendees score each chili, and the winner is ultimately selected by popular vote.
Scoring runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with the pub crawl continuing later into the night. Attendees must score at least six of the eleven entries for their scorecard to be counted.
Tickets for the Fire and Ice Chili Cook-Off Pub Crawl Fundraiser are a donation of $15.00 for one or $25.00 for two. Each participant received a wristband good for a taster-sized chili at each establishment. The first 350 registrants will also receive a wristband good for a taster-sized chili at each establishment. The first 350 registrants will also receive free souvenier chili pepper party beads, organizers said. Tickets are now available at the participating establishments.
All 11 participating establishments are located in the heart of historic downtown Mount Clemens:
  • Bath City Bistro
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Detroit Pub
  • John Barleycorn's 
  • Little Lorraine's
  • The Mitt
  • Madison's Pub
  • Orleans Billiards Cafe
  • The Rec Bowl
  • Seeburgers Cheeseburgers
  • Your Mothers
All Fire and Ice Chili Cook-Off Pub Crawl proceeds will be equally divided between two area charities, The Anton Art Center and the Mount Clemens Goodfellows, event organizers said. The 2012 event raised $4,145 and helped these two groups continue to serve the local community, event organizers said.
The Fire and Ice Chili Cook-Off Pub Crawl originates back to 2006, when Mount Clemens hosted several Super City activities as part of Super Bowl XL in Detroit. Since then, this local favorite event has raised over $22,000 for its beneficiaries, and continues to serve as the kick off for the Downtown Mount Clemens annual Ice Carving Show Festivities.

This 100% volunteer event has gathered over 628 tons of debris from the Lake St. Clair shoreline. Once again, we are encouraging everyone to join our efforts to clean the beaches and shoreline of Lake St. Clair. Volunteers are what made this event the success it has been in the past and it is the volunteers who will make this event a success this year. This has grown into a tremendous "done in a day event" - the largest in the midwest. This year's clean-up sites include Veteran's Memorial Park beach, Blossom Heath Park beach, the Champine Park shoreline and the Chapaton Retention Basin shoreline in St. Clair Shores. Some canal and shoreline homeowner groups will participate in this year's event by cleaning their beaches, canals and waterfront shorelines on the same day.
