Due to safety concerns over the spread of coronavirus, we’ve sadly had to cancel the in-person iteration of our annual Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce, the largest and longest-running event of its kind. But that doesn’t mean we’re not celebrating 30 years of hot saucin’.
We’re still working out what a virtual fest looks like – and what we (and you!) can do to keep supporting our longtime partners at Central Texas Food Bank – but in the meantime, we want to hear from Hot Sauce Fest fans. Do you have any favorite stories from past festivals you’d like to share? Did you meet your partner there? Stumble onto your new favorite band? Discover firsthand that hallucinogens and hot sauce don’t play well together?
Drop us a line at email@example.com – subject line “Hot Sauce memories” – and we might include your story in our upcoming anniversary issue. Send photos to the same address.
