Hot As Cluck Debuts @ The Hot Chicken Fest

On July 4th team Ulika jumped into a phone booth to become Hot As Cluck Fried Chicken. What was the occasion? Well, it was the Nashville Hot Chicken Festival of course. Here are some pics from our adventure. Congrats to Pollo Sauve for taking home the trophy. They only announced the winner, but we are pretty sure that we finished second (at least in our minds). We had a great time out at East Park and we want to thank the festival origanizers for allowing us to participate and to all of our supporters (you know who you are).

Nice presentation! I wish I hadn't missed out this year, but I was on a lake. One of the first posts in my blog was about my experience at the festival last year.
