Now in its eighth year, WMSE’s annual Rockabilly Chili Contest is the largest and most anticipated of the city’s many chili cookoffs, featuring 57 chilis—including 12 vegetarian varieties—from 48 restaurants like Roots, Palomino, AJ Bombers, Café Lulu, Hinterland and Maxie’s Southern Comfort. Admission is $6, and each chili sample is $1, though you can get a couple free samples with the donation of four non-perishable food items to the Hunger Task Force. And as always, yes, there will literally be rockabilly music at the event, courtesy of WMSE DJs Jonny Z and Dietrich.


Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele has the power to appoint a commissioner to privatize primarily black and Latino Milwaukee Public Schools in a turnaround district. Will this privatization plan improve student performance?
