Northies Chilli Fest 2019
A month-long event filled with chilli-topped pizzas, spicy cocktails and chilli eating competitions.
There's one surefire way to keep those winter shivers at bay, and that's a hefty dose of chilli. Or, in the case of Cronulla haunt Northies, a whole month of it.
The beachside bar is spicing up August with its second month-long Northies Chilli Fest, complete with fiery eats, super-spicy drinks and a few chilli-eating competitions along the way.
The kitchen is fuelling the burn with a chilli-charged specials menu, featuring dishes like 'death' wings, jalapeño poppers, chilli chicken burgers and a 'chilli roulette pizza', for friends who dare to share. There'll also be a 'death wagon' rolling around the bar stocked with 30 hot sauces — which you can add to any dish.
Meanwhile, the bar is coming to the party with some spicy treats of its own — cosy up to a chilli-choc espresso martini, choose the Scoville (spiciness) rating of your bloody mary, or cool things down a little with a limited-edition Young Henrys Rockefella gose with coriander seed.
And from 2pm each Sunday, brave contestants will battle it out for chilli eating glory. Sign up to compete in the competition, or watch from a safe distance, enjoying the weekly lineup of live acts, DJs and hot sauce vendors, with tastebuds still in tact.
Heats for the chilli-eating competition will be held on August 4, 11, 18 and 25 — which you can sign up for here.
