The leaves have fallen, the skies are gray, and all the warmth has left the city, right? Wrong! The Brooklyn Chili Takedown at the Bell House is creating a toasty, hearty epicenter of deliciousness. For only 15 bucks, you get 30 different types of chili to choose from, guaranteeing you’ll leave so stuffed you can barely walk (you know, in a good way). From vegetarian to beef to “dinosaur,” mild to hot to “oh my God, I won’t be able to taste for a week,” there’s something for everyone in this veritable rainbow of chilis. Part competition, part taste-testing, all scrumptious and exciting, the Chili Takedown is the perfect way to conquer your hunger and warm up from the inside out.
