The New York City Chili Cook-Off (ICS)

The New York City Chili Cook-Off (ICS)
Spread the love

The Official New York State Cook-Off for the International Chili Society (ICS). Includes chili sampling, judging, cash prizes, amusements, and live entertainment. Winners chosen from Historic Richmond Town will go to the world championships!

The rivalry is real. The competition heated. Teams may dress as cowboys, some wear funny hats, and some have wacky names, but the competition is serious business as the region’s best chili-heads take to the bridges to battle the top cooks of New York at the ninth annual NYC Chili Cookoff at Historic Richmond Town.

Chiliheads are quick to say that chili is a cuisine of the people. And the judging reflects that philosophy. The International Chili Society (ICS) recommends skipping professional judges and stacking the judges’ table with community members who appreciate good food. As the one and only cookoff in New York City that’s sanctioned by the International Chili Society, the competition entries and the judging can be hotter than the spices.

Visit with live costumed-interpreters inside the historic buildings for a day filled with family fun!
– General Store: participate in a museum scavenger hunt for food preparation items of the 1800s.
– Carpenter Shop: demo of wooden ware from the family farm.
– Tinsmith Shop: visit with a master tinsmith and view household items cooking implements made of tin.
– Stephens-Black House Kitchen: Coleslaw demo and sampling.

The National Lighthouse Museum, Staten Island, NY - Film Festival Event: " MANAGED RETREAT'

National Lighthouse Museum, Staten Island, NY 10301

 The National Lighthouse Museum’s Staten Island premiere of the acclaimed short film –

                               Managed Retreat (2018)

By the end of this century, New York City is expected to have up to 6.25 feet of sea level rise, radically reshaping its 520 miles of coastline and impacting more than 100 coastal neighborhoods. An acclaimed short documentary portrait by director Nathan Kensinger “Managed Retreat” examines the fates of three New York City neighborhoods that were purchased by the New York State government in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy to be demolished and returned to nature as part of the city’s first ‘managed retreat’ from rising sea levels.

This observational documentary follows the process of retreat over the course of one year in three waterfront communities on Staten Island, as homes are destroyed, streets are abandoned, and wild animals begin to return.

Director Nathan Kensinger is a documentary filmmaker, photographer and artist whose work explores hidden urban landscapes, environmental disaster zones, and coastal communities impacted by sea level rise. He will be joined at the LIGHTHOUSE MUSEUM by a PANEL of EXPERTS studying the EFFECT of rising sea levels on neighborhoods.

Tickets are $10. For information/ Reservations 718 390 0040, info@lighthousemuseum.org
