It’s time to turn up the heat, Melbournians. Because your favourite city is re-booting the Hot Sauce and Chilli Festival for another year! The weekend-long event will be hosted by the folks at Welcome to Thornbury, and there's quite a spicy lineup if we do say so ourselves.
You can expect big players like Belles Hot Chicken, Mr Burger, Happy Camper Pizza and Dip’d Gourmet Mini Donuts supplying the fiery noms, while the bar is providing the drinks in the form of the “Hot Pocket” Shot—a concoction so spicy you have to sign a waiver form before consumption. There’ll also be sauces on offer to buy at WTT's exclusive chilli market, so you can keep the party going way past the weekend.
You might want to run down to Sevs to get a litre of milk before this one. Space Coyotes are a definite possibility.
When: June 8 – 10 (Friday 5pm, Saturday – Sunday 12pm)
Where: Welcome to Thornbury, 520 High St, Northcote
