Hot Sauce Blog Poker Tournament

Zest Fest HSB Poker Invitational

Cigars, alcohol, cards, and a whole lot of smack talking, what some would hope becomes an annual tradition, the first Hot Sauce Blog Poker Tourament is taking shape. The pieces are now coming together and as in most HSB undertakings, a lot of good folks are pulling together to make this event something special. Oh don’t get me wrong, they’re still slinging the smack pretty hard (breeze through some of the threads and you’ll see it). But this has all the makings of an unforgettable time and an opportunity to make some friends for life or at least until the expiration date on their bottles.
Poker Chips

The poker table is coming from one end of the country, the chips from another. Now the trophies have been delivered and will be on the way soon enough. Yes trophies, yeah dude this is BIGTIME! Compliments of Arizona Jack and Penrod Pepper Products, any of us have the chance to bring home a cool trophy to put on a shelf right next to all the hot collectables we are all drooling over.
