Celebrate National Chili Month With NY’s Best Amateur Chili Cook-Off

October is National Chili Month and to celebrate New York’s only all-chili restaurant, Lucky 777 Chili Parlor is helping us host New York’s Best Amateur Chili Cook-Off. On October 14th (Sunday) from 1-3 p.m. guests will sample, compare and judge amateur chili cooks finest representation of one of America’s oldest comfort foods.

Participating cooks can go as wild or as tame as they wish and they don’t have to be filled with just meat…. vegetarian chili (like Lucky 777’s) can hold it’s own against even the most meat-heavy chili. (If you’re a last-minute entrant, e-mail Mckenzie to get in to the competition!)

Top prizes will be awarded to The People’s Choice and The Judge’s Choice. In addition to claiming glory of the best amateur chili in NYC, the winner of Peoples Choice will receive a gift certificate to Lucky 777 Chili and Jimmy’s No. 43, and a post-event write-up on both sponsors’ websites. The Judges Choice winner will receive a gift certificate to Lucky 777 Chili and Jimmy’s No. 43. All chefs will receive a $20 gift card, and Seamless has donated $5 gift cards to first 100 attendees!

Tickets are $20 for unlimited chili tastings, fresh baked cornbread muffins and a voucher for a free Lucky Taco at Lucky 777 Chili’s store. Our extensive beer and wine list will be available for purchase separately (regular brunch/bar service will be available during the event). Bobby Do Tube is the MC for the cook-off. All proceeds from this event will benefit God’s Love We Deliver and their expansion campaign.
