  1. Firehead Thomas says

    Thanks for the shout out! One of the great things about the chilehead community is the respect and support the vendors, bloggers, and reviewers give to each other….it’s such a genuinely good group of people…

  2. Absolutely FT! I am still amazed at the genuinely friendly atmosphere of the chilehead community as a whole, from manufacturers to customers. I think it reflects a true passion for the thing we all love, the chile.

  3. Yeah, I really wish I could have made this event, but it was too far to drive from my humble little abode way up in the Arctic Circle…LOL!

    Seriously, Thom nailed it on the head with his assessment. I’m very blessed and fortunate that my little chilehead hobby allows me to interact and be part of such a cool group of people. This fiery foods community truly is a family and I hope it never changes.

  4. I was able to listen to the cast last night, very cool. I was happy to see that everyone had a good time. Looking forward to doing it again next year. I have a feeling we’ll be getting a good number more vendors next year, as many of them may have been sitting on the fence to see if the 1st annual was successful or not.
