Chili + Beer, the perfect equation for a winter night
NYChiliFest 2014Chelsea Market (75 9th Avenue, New York, NY) Map it $50
Experience the endorphin-boosting powers of chili peppers at the fourth edition of this annual food fete presented by Chelsea Market, Dickson's Farmstand Meats and the Cleaver Company. Competing for the title of 2014 Chili Champ of NYC and the coveted Golden Chili Mug, dozens of area restaurants and top chefs have signed on to serve up heaping portions of their spicy concoctions throughout the market's 500-foot concourse. Dickson's supplies the beef, Samuel Adams is in charge of the beer, and Brooklyn-based band, the Dixons, provide the musical soundtrack. And you'll be happy to hear that this evening of getting full and obtaining a natural high benefits a good cause; a portion of the proceeds go to Food Systems Network NYC, a member organization devoted to building a vibrant, local farm and food economy.
