Harry Weston is surprised with a first place trophy from Myrtle Beach Mayor Brenda Bethune during Myrtle Beach’s National Night Out celebration at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
With 32 years cooking at the Patricia Inn, Weston said he didn't think he had an unfair advantage over the other neighborhood watch groups in the chili cook-off.
"I never cooked chili except for myself," he laughed. "I didn't use a recipe, just some tomato sauce and tomato juice, ground beef and some other ingredients. They asked me to do and I did my best."
The city's 13 neighborhoods competed for the trophy in a chili cook-off. First place went to Booker T. Washington/Carrie Mae Johnson Neighborhood Watch followed by Seaside South Neighborhood Watch and Forest Dunes Neighborhood Watch.
