Bring on the heat!
The 2nd Annual NYC Hot Sauce ExpoPenn Plaza Pavilion (401 7th Avenue, New York, NY, United States) Map it $10
If you're looking to get high this weekend, we suggest heading to Penn Plaza Pavilion for the return of this po-po approved endorphin-stimulating two-day expo. One of the fastest growing industries in the U.S., hot sauce offers a thrilling ride for your taste buds and comes in a variety of edible forms. Featuring over 45 of the best makers in the world, this fiery fest also includes eating contests, live music, and an awards show. Saturday is highlighted by chicken wing and pizza eating matches, and a lollipop lick-a-thon, while Sunday serves up spicy knishes, a Bloody Mary Mix Down, and the Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper Eating Challenge, a Gunness Book of Records-judged contest for pepper eating. Two hot sauce luminaries, Chris Caffery of Trans Siberian Orchestra, and Eddie Ojeda of Twister Sister, are also stopping by to sign bottles of their blazing concoctions, High River Sauces and Rippin Red Booth, respectively. As the Knicks would say, bring on the heat!
