Gerl, so you are stuck in NYC in a job you hate with no vacation time and all you really want to do is be someplace wonderful eating and drinking your face off ooooooooorrr maybe you are just stuck and everything is just fine and dandy but you still need more of a release than a bad handy on a Tuesday afternoon. The fact of the matter is I have an inside scoop on what is going to be one of the most fun NYC Events of the Summer!


Cook Out NYC™ is a major food eating event (aka sloppy eating & drinking till you can’t anymore) that happens July 7th & 8th, 2012, on NYC’s beautiful Governor’s Island. There is a Kimchi Eating Contest set to rival that of Coney Island’s hotdog contest, Sixpoint beer tastings, cook offs and demos from famous chefs and much more. Personally I am intrigued by this kimchi contest ’cause if anyone barfs that is bound to be worth the price of admission!

In their own words

There will be more than 20 BBQ and grilling stations (samples guaranteed until 2 p.m.) withofferings from John Brown’s Smokehouse, Blind Tiger, Jimmy’s No. 43, EastVillage Meat Market, Lucky 777 Chili, King Phojanakong of Kuma Inn andUmi Nom, a Hot Sauce &Wings cooking station,rooftop garden salads by
Brooklyn Grange and Growing Chefs, others;

A hot dog competition (decided by popular vote) with six stations featuring
Sabrett’s Hot &Spicy Hot Dogs with toppings from Sir Kensington Ketchup, My
Friend’s Mustard, Sabrett’s Classic Onion Sauce, Chili from Lucky 777 Chili, 
a kimchi dog, and a special entry by Chef Josetth Gordon.

The featured event of July Good Beer Month. Cook Out NYC™ also offers custom
beers by exclusive beer sponsor Sixpoint,which will be bringing back July Good Beer Month’s
special “Signal” Smoked Pale Ale, along with Sehr Crisp Pils and five other brews.Sangria,
as well as other beverages,will be available for purchase. A stage with live music will feature local
blues/bluegrass/Americana bands.
