Diwali, chili, and burgers...oh my!

Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, and it's a very cool holiday.  This year's Diwali will fall around October 24th, and I'd like to join in the fun!  Does anybody know of a Diwali celebration in Stamford?

In other news, there might not be too many Hindus at UUSIS' fourth annual chili cook-off on October 15th.  Because some of the chilis will be made with beef.  Which many Hindus don't eat.  And some chilis will probably have pork in them, so there go the Muslims and Jews.  Heck, will I be the only person at the cook-off??  Based on the crowds for the previous events, I doubt it.  Anyway, the cook-off will take place next Saturday from 12-3 at the Unitarian Universalist Society in Stamford, 20 Forest Street (across from the Avon).  Admission is $10, or $5 if you bring a bag of non-perishable food to donate.

Now if you're still hungry after next year's chili cook-off, you'll be able to hit up Five Guys Burgers & Fries!!  We missed out on getting a Whole Foods, BSF has locations in the towns on either side of us, and Shake Shack set up shop in Westport, we're getting a Five Guys, dagnabbit!!  The only thing that could make me happier would be an In & Out.  Mmm...double-double with cheese...

last year, there were vegetarian chilis and one made with lamb. Last year, mine had buffallo.
It is less usual for a chili to contain pork.
In one sence i try to stay close to Texas roots by having beef. The buffalo last year was a "Colorado Twist".
This year will have a smokey flavor to it.

Were also getting a Jake's Wayback Burgers on Hope Street. I like it a lot better than 5 guys.
