Texas Chili Cookoff RiuniteGet tickets, y’all!

The 23rd Annual Texas Chili Cook-Off takes place in NYC’s Hudson River Park (Pier 84) on Saturday, May 16th from 12:00-5:00pm. Riunite Lambrusco, this year’s official wine sponsor, will be serving up chilled glasses of Lambrusco all afternoon – a perfect match to the chili dishes entered by both amateur and area-restaurant teams.

Tickets to the Chili Cook-off include all-you-can-eat chili (while it lasts!) along with Riunite Lambrusco and Shiner Bock Beer. The event benefits Texas Exes – New York Chapter’s scholarship efforts and is the organization’s largest fundraising event annually. Attendance this year is expected to be around 2,000 people.
