Join fellow Cornellians and friends for a casual meal at Ben's Chili Bowl in the Shaw neighborhood of northwest D.C. It is known locally for its chili dogs, half-smokes, and milkshakes, and has been an integral part of the neighborhood's history since its founding in 1958.
At the time of its founding, segregation was still the law of the land in Washington D.C., which meant the restaurant operated in a thriving all-Black neighborhood known as “Black Broadway.” The community immediately embraced Ben’s Chili Bowl as a restaurant and gathering spot.
Curious to learn more of the history and role of this casual dining spot? Register today! There are vegetarian options available. Each attendee is responsible for the cost of their own food and drink. If you cannot attend, please contact Toniqua Hay no later than Monday February 18 so another can take your place.
