    Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival

    The heat is on, citizen! Hundreds of restaurants, commercial bottlers, and home cooks battle for hot sauce glory across a tasty variety of categories – in a day replete with food and drinks, cooking demos with top chefs, and ice cream. The public (that's you) will vote for favorites, and our panel of celebrity judges will weigh in on the finals. Names will be made, careers will be launched, destinies – yea, verily – will be forged! This is, we mean, the biggest and baddest hot sauce event of the year. And, what, you want live music, too? OK, how about a full lineup of greats – with Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis, among others? Exactly. Proceeds benefit the Central Texas Food Bank. And this link right here brings more information than there are tortillas in Terlingua.
    Sun., Aug. 25, 11am-5pm. Free with donation.
