Let's recap shall we?

Last Sunday, August 29, we hosted our 20th Annual Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival in Waterloo Park. The weather was hot but not nearly as hot as some of the spicy sauces served up that day. Over 14,000 people attended and donated 23,766 pounds of food and $16,845 in cash. All donations benefit the Capital Area Food Bank.

Today we released our 2010 Best of Austin issue where we publish the results from our Best of Austin Critics and Readers polls. This is a big issue with a ton of great info on everything that makes Austin so amazing. Make sure that you go pick up your copy of this issue today because these ALWAYS leave the racks quickly!
