CHILI, BANDS & BEER AT CHELSEA MARKET
Tenth Ave. entrance between 15th & 16th Sts.
Sunday, January 26, $50-$75, 7:00 – 9:00
Chili has a fabulous way of repeating on you, and this weekend the NYChiliFest will do just that in a big way at Chelsea Market. On Sunday, January 26, chefs from more than two dozen local eateries and food trucks will take part in a chili cook-off, including Cannibal, Mile End, Num Pang, Jeepney, Bubby’s, Jimmy’s No. 43, Roberta’s, Pies ‘n’ Thighs, Los Tacos 1, Morris Grilled Cheese, and Mexicue, going after the coveted Golden Chili Mug. Their fare will be judged by Umami Burger’s Adam Fleischman, Wrighteous Organics’ Martin Tessarzik, Catherine Lederer of Chop’t, and chefs Amanda Freitag and Heather Carlucci, along with multitudes of chili fanatics who, for a mere fifty bucks, can enjoy unlimited meaty, spicy delights throughout the eight-hundred-foot-long concourse — and can wash it all down with four varieties of Samuel Adams beer for only five dollars more. The primary ingredient in the dishes, one-hundred-percent dry-aged, locally raised beef, is supplied by Chelsea Market’s own Dickson’s Farmstand Meats. In addition, there will be live music by the honky-tonk band the Dixons and street-singing legend Super Bad Brad.
