Northies Chilli Fest

A month-long event filled with chilli-topped pizzas, spicy margaritas 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 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 'angry' wings, jalapeño poppers and a 'chilli roulette pizza', for friends who dare to share.

Meanwhile, the bar is coming to the party with some spicy treats of its own — cosy up to the limited-edition Blue Chilli Margarita, add some chilli fairy floss to your usual order, or try a Young Henrys Newtowner jazzed up with a cayenne-salt rim.

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 5, 12 and 19 — which you can sign up for here —with the championship wrapping up the final day of Northies Chilli Fest, on August 26.
