💃 Kidchella, Harry Potter trivia, and sultry bossa nova

💃 Kidchella, Harry Potter trivia, and sultry bossa nova


Evergrey storytelling producer Ana Sofia Knauf and business manager Kenny Shelton hung out with awesome readers and street team members London Hammar and Rachel Ciprotti at Hot Sauce Fest in Ballard on Saturday. And things got spicy — at least for our Evergrey staffers.

Rachel and London weren’t feel like setting their mouths on fire during the festival. (Fair.) They did still get their nom on and liked the locally made black truffle mustard from Mustard and Co. and some flautas they found nearby.

Kenny and Ana Sofia, however, were down to get (hot) sauced. 🌶 Here were their faves…

Ana Sofia: Silagy Sauce‘s Batch No. 5 Smokin’ Habanero made in Battle Ground, Washington
Heat factor: 🔥🔥🔥 out of 5 — “I’m a sucker for anything smoky. Excited to try this on fish tacos the next time I make ’em!”

Kenny: Any of the sauces from Portland, Oregon’s Hab Sauce — “I bought a variety pack because I couldn’t choose.”
Heat factor: 🔥🔥🔥 to 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Thanks again to London and Rachel for their help on Saturday! We had a blast hanging out with y’all.
