We put a little kick into our weekend with readers Rachel Ciprotti and London Hammar at Hot Sauce Fest. 🌶 (📸: The Evergrey)
IT'S GETTING HOT IN HERE
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
Kenny: Any of the sauces from Portland, Oregon’s Hab Sauce — “I bought a variety pack because I couldn’t choose.”
Thanks again to London and Rachel for their help on Saturday! We had a blast hanging out with y’all.
