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.
