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.

The battle unfolds Saturday April 21 at 12 noon with the 2017 first place People’s Choice winner, Smokey Joes (Captain Anthony Cucurullo), and the first place salsa AND green chili winner, Davey’s Spice Rack (Captain David Ronge), returning to defend their crowns

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.

Judges include: Bobby Digi, Island Voice; Al Curtis, Board of RCSF; Charles Fall, NYC Parks; Helen Gambardella, HRT Women’s Auxiliary; Eric E. Garvin, JD, Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice; Marie and Bill LaCurtis, NYC Parks; Sherwin and Joyce Suss, SI Chamber; Dianne Schrippa, YMCA; Steven and Lana Seidman, HIC of SI; Elizabeth Slayback, former winner and judge for SI Advance Cookbook; Kenny Pragl, NYC Parks.

Obie Award-winning director Robert O’Hara (Bootycandy, The Brother/Sister Plays (Part 2)) brings a warring King and his band of brothers to communities all across New York with Mobile Unit’s spring production of Henry V . Insulted by the regent of France, Britain’s King Henry V decides to wage war and claim the throne across the Channel. But Henry’s charm only distracts the soldiers for so long before the dire stakes of their task call into question the King’s true motives and direction. Resonating across the centuries—wherever there may be a kingdom for a stage, and royalty to act—Shakespeare’s drama about invasion, ego and leadership, delves into history’s thorniest questions: What makes a person worthy of wearing the crown, and what do they owe the people they lead? Seating is limited so please RSVP to benny.adorno@parks.nyc.gov. About the Public Theater Mobile Unit The Public Theater’s Mobile Unit is a reinvention of Joseph Papp’s “Mobile Theater,” which began in 1957. Papp’s original touring company evolved into the New York Shakespeare Festival, and ultimately became The Public Theater. All of it was built on a simple idea: Culture belongs to everyone. This idea remains at the heart of The Public Theater’s work to this day. And our Mobile Unit still takes this mission out to the communities across New York City, providing free performances to all. The Mobile Unit presents free Shakespeare to prisons, homeless shelters, and community centers throughout New York’s boroughs. Over the years, the Mobile Unit has served thousands of audiences with critically acclaimed productions. In addition to the community tour, each Mobile Unit show “sits down” at The Public Theater’s Astor Place home to perform for Public audiences and community organizations from all over the city.

Led by a Snug Harbor educator, this special experience will include:

The history and story of Sailors’ Snug Harbor, from its days as a sprawling community for retired sailors, to its current role as one of the largest ongoing adaptive reuse projects in America featuring visual and performing arts, gardens, and educational institutions

A walkthrough of the grounds of Snug Harbor past ornate monuments, statues, and roughly two dozen buildings in the Greek Revival, Beaux Arts, Italianate, and Victorian styles

A trip inside several restored and abandoned buildings from the 19th-century including the Governors House, a staff cottage, and a former three-story dormitory

Our tour will conclude at Snug Harbor’s al fresco cafe, Harbor Eats, which will have food and drink available for purchase.

See you there!
