October's Fests

The first weekend of October is going to be chock full of fun and I hope you guys mark your calendar for at least one, if not both of the great things happening.

Saturday October 1st, 2011
Southern Hotwing Festival - Hall of Fame Park Downtown

First is the Southern Hotwing Festival where I, alongside Vivek (He of the Epicurean Adventures), Chris Chamberlain(@CeeElCee and Nashville Bites Blog) and Amanda (@Loveandnachos and An Organic Process) will be tasting amateur hot wing submissions by teams from around the South East. This is the first time the festival is being held in Nashville (usually in Memphis) so let's show them how much we Nashvillians love hot wings. Details here.
