What? Riunite Lambrusco joins the Texas Exes, New York Chapter and Shiner Beer for the 23rd Annual Texas Chili Cook-Off. Teams of home chefs, restauranteurs, and chili lovers prepared their best recipes and served samples with all the fixin’s to 1,200 happy testers and a panel of judges.
Sample entries included a slightly sweet and very flavorful vegan chili (surprisingly delicious), spicy brisket chili (not surprisingly delicious), and Roadhouse Chili with Chipotle Sour Cream (yum).
When? Saturday, May 16, 2015
Where? Hudson River Park, Pier 84 in New York City
Why? Being outside on a spring day; tasting a ton of delicious chili dishes; drinking chilled, juicy Lambrusco; listening to country and late 90s cover music; tasting multiple varieties of Shiner beer; spending time with friends; snagging a free pair of those super cool “I (Heart) Wine” Riunite sunglasses. Enough said.
