Much like the Peppers at the Beach show, I will be sending in pics to someone to post on the thread here, as well as reporting the comings and goings of this little Festival in Columbus, Ohio. There is a nice handful of hot sauce, salsa and bbq sauce vendors. A lot of them are the same from the North Market hot sauce show from February that we debuted the website with. Nevertheless, seeing friends again is the reason I am taking the 6+ hour drive on a much traveled weekend. Thanks goes out to Joe and Linda Levinson of www.thehotzoneonline.com who are letting me stay once again under their roof for the weekend, and to CaJohn for letting them know about my financial dilemma. Thanks guys! I look forward to sharing the event with everyone who can’t be there.
