Hi-Time Wine Cellars is a staple in the Costa Mesa community, I mean… they’ve been around since 1957! This year I was thrilled to be asked to come photograph their 13th Annual Chili Cook-Off for Charity to benefit the Boys & Girls Club in the area. Over 30 restaurants and local vendors participated in the event to see who would take home the prizes of People’s Choice, Hottest, Most Innovated and Best Overall chili. Needless to say it was a day full of chili eating, adult beverage consuming, and neighbor mingling.
Here’s some of my favorites photos from the day.

If you were one of the restaurants or vendors that participated – below you’ll find a Dropbox folder with all the photos from the chili cook off. If you were a vendor and see your photos, please feel free to use – just be sure to tag me as the photographer (@jessphillipsphotos) on your social media account and such!
