Jungle Jim’s Weekend of Fire – Third Annual “Hot Foods With Attitude” Show
On August 1st and 2nd, 2009 – Over 55 Vendors and 3,000+ attendees Will Pack the Jungle Jim’s Store in Fairfield, Ohio
For one weekend each summer, Greater Cincinnati will be the center of the hot sauce universe.
Now that’s saying a lot! While this Marylander has never experienced what is known as the “Weekend of Fire” at Jungle Jim’s, but with over 55 vendors showing their hot sauce wares, this will be a chilehead’s paradise!
From Jungle Jim’s site:
Some new additions to the show (including the salsa contest) include having four portable restaurants set up in front of The Oscar Event Center during show hours selling BBQ food and roasted peppers and a brand new Harley Davidson Bike sitting in the main entry way! The infamous Defcon Hot Wing Eating Contest at Buffalo Wings and Rings will begin about 7:00 on Saturday Night along with a wrap-up dinner at Papadeux’s Restaurant on Sunday night. Wow, what a power packed week end of fire!!
Here’s a short list of just a few of the many vendors at the show:
Ahruns Famous, Hotshots, Bald Eagle Foods, Intensity Academy,
Big Orson’s Sauce & Salsa, Jack Hammer Hot Sauce, Bisummo, Jim Dandy’s BBQ,
