Get Warm at the NYChilifest

As the days keep getting colder, the idea of a chili festival sounds might warm and inviting. You’re in luck; this Sunday is the Third Annual NYChilifest, taking place at the Chelsea Market from 7 to 9pm. For $55 you get unlimited Sam Adams beer and chili samples from some of the city’s, excuse the pun, hottest purveyors. Twenty-three restaurants are participating, including Perla, Pies n’Thighs, Potlikker, Salvation Taco, Talde, and Gramercy Tavern.

Like last year, Dickson’s Farmstand Meats, one of the presenters along with The Cleaver Company, is supplying each team with t100 percent dry-aged, locally raised beef. After sampling from each crock, cookbook author Rick Rogers, New York Times food writer Julia Moskin, Wrighteous Organics‘ Martin Tessarzik, and Laura Silverman, founder of Gluttonforlife.com will decide the winner of the Golden Chili Mug of 2013.

What’s not to like about 500 feet of hot chili fun, with perky country music by The Dixon’s included. All proceeds benefit Food Systems Network NYC, so when you leave to hold your belly and down an antacid, you will know your chili binge was totally worth it.
