Headed out tonight to check out the 16th Annual Tucson Firefighter's Chili Cook-Off in Downtown Tucson not really knowing what to expect.

The chili was ok for the most part. The guys over at the Lucky Thirteen booth, I think, had the best. But my favorite booth was the Zombie one - of course.

HOWEVER, pictured is little Jericho Santoro, 5, a breakdancing-tumbling-cartwheeling little scene stealer.

Talking with his dad Robert, I found out that Jericho is self-taught after watching karate movies and breakdancing videos.

Here's a link to a story by Juliana Vasquez, a sometimes contributor to Tucson Weekly, for KOLD 13. Dan Marries was a judge at the cook off.
