2012 Weekend of Fire: Blogger’s Round Table

This is a long video as I chose to run it as 1 video instead of chopping it into multiple videos. Our Round Table was led by Scott Roberts of www.ScottRobertsweb.com, Joe & Linda Levinson of www.TheHotZoneOnline.com, and Marilyn Meagher of www.HotSauceDaily.com. We discuss many issues including the ever-increasing pepper eating challenge videos, the cooking with super hot chile videos, best new products at the Weekend of Fire this year, and a few other topics that bring out real emotion from our bloggers. Whether you agree or disagree with us we should cover a topic you might be passionate about. At least we hope you do. I also spare you from my ugly mug as I am mostly off camera for this video.

Weekend of Fire 2012: Post Show Wrap-up

I wasn’t really in the mood to do another diary of the show because I know all the other bloggers at the booth were doing play by play of what was going on.

As I have stated before, the Weekend of Fire Show was my very first fiery food event, so it holds something special in my heart. Saturday morning it was meet and greet all the vendors who were getting ready for the start of the show. Joe & Linda Levinson had the grand idea to get Johnny McLaughlin from Heartbreaking Dawns a birthday cake, and they found the perfect one, that of a giant burger. We split it, they got the card, and I also threw in a 70’s throwback candy bag I found in the ginormous candy area at the Jungle Jim’s Market. Unfortunately, when they gave it out to him I was preoccupied with organizing the after show dinner and lost out in the fun. I did make it up at the restaurant later when I got the waitress to give Johnny a special cupcake with a candle and sing “happy birthday” to him in front of all of us. We had something similar the night before at Terry’s Turf Club, but they didn’t have much to work with in the way of singing.
