Say Uncle

A while back I wrote about the fabulous and locally made Uncle Brutha's gourmet hot sauce, which was previously most easily acquired from the company's stand at Eastern Market.

Now comes word that they've opened a shop--no, better yet, a "hot sauce emporium"--at 323 Seventh St. SE on Capitol Hill. The store offers more than 300 varieties of hot sauce, marinades, barbecue sauce and spice rubs, in addition to the award-winning Uncle Brutha's sauces. The store, which has been open a few weeks, will hold a grand opening celebration May 7.

You can read about DCist Scott's adventures with the stuff here. My bottle of Fire Sauce No. 10 was recently emptied, so I'm looking forward to stopping in. Let me know if you've been.

Somehow I didn't know that, despite being a big fan of the sauce and living a few blocks away. I'm running low, too, so I'll have to stop by.

Oh my god. This is fantastic news. I just went to Eastern Market and stocked up on their hot and tomatillo sauces.

I went by yesterday - they have a tasting bar so you can try all the sauces, which I thought was brilliant. I left with five bottles...
