G³ now in it’s 3rd year didn’t really change much this year with the majority of the vendors, but as always Michael Lampros of Gunther’s Gourmet supplies us with a few products to sample and makes us feel extremely welcome. He sets up with spicy products to sample and purchased over 80 lbs of chicken wings and a mother lode of mozzarella sticks. Mark Weiler of Wy’s Wings supplied us with non-stop wings on demand as he toiled over a fryer all day long as well as keeping up with interested customers. We were extremely grateful for his efforts, thanks Mark!
I was joined by the Schobergs- Alex and Lauren, on occasion Marilyn Meagher of HotSauceDaily/Weekly, Nick Lampros (Michael’s Brother and co-owner of Gunther’s Gourmet) and Cosbie who was one of the few true chileheads at the event whom helped us last year. We have several different types of products as you will see, and we used our rating system as always, but some of the sauces were just not meant for wings as we noted in our reviews.
A big thank you to the Lampros Brothers and all the vendors who made us feel like a part of the family. Thanks for the welcome! Please check out the great coverage from Brian & Marilyn Meagher on HotSauceDaily with their awesome picture gallery and you can listen to their podcast by visiting their website.
