What could be better than eating hot chile peppers and listening to Pete Seeger (yes, that Pete Seeger!) at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens’ annual Chile Pepper Fiesta on Sept. 27? Well, if Seeger and spice isn’t enough for you, how about gumbo by the Sauce Boss? Or the “indie Hindi” sounds of Indian singer Falu? Or chutney-making sessions? Or flame eating (actual flame eating) by Robbins and Ringold? There are even arts and crafts for kids (who love hot chile peppers, you know).
The 16th annual Chile Pepper Fiesta, Sept. 27 at Brooklyn Botanic Garden (1000 Washington Ave., just south of Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights). Call (718) 623-7200 for info.
