What are you doing in Albuquerque? You ask?

I will respond with: WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!

We’ve only been talking about this for the last month!

As you read this we’re on a plane bound for New Mexico. The first weekend in March draws near, and that means it’s time for the National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show.

We’re on our way to one of the largest hot sauce events in the world, and you get to check it out LIVE from the comfort of your cubicle, couch, or crack house. Here’s the rundown on all the excitement this weekend:

Thursday – We arrive in Albuquerque and set up the mobile studio at Sandia Casino. We aren’t actually staying at Sandia due to impending legal action from an incident at last year’s show, but I won’t go into that now. Just think me, alcohol, gambling, with hot sauce, and you get the picture.

Friday – The excitement begins with an appearance on the T.J. Trout Morning Show at 94 Rock. We’re not sure what time yet, but check our Twitter and Facebook pages Friday morning, and we’ll let you know as soon as we figure it out. You can listen live from the station’s website. There’s a “LISTEN LIVE” link at the top left of the page below the 94 Rock logo. If you want to know what you’re in for, this video will give you an idea of what happened last year:

Saturday – Fiery foods and live broadcast time! We’ll be interviewing guests at the top of each hour for 15-30 minutes, then showing views of the event floor in between. Here’s the schedule for Day 1:

You’re probably asking yourself, “Why THESE people?”. Never fear my friends. I’ve done my research. Everyone on that list will bring something tasty, interesting, or funny to the table. If not, I will drown them sarcasm until they give up and leave. GUAR-AN-TEED!

During the broadcast we’ll also be giving away free subscriptions to the all new digital magazine; Burn! The winners will be selected by each guest, and will be awarded to the viewer that asks the best question during their segment. If you want to chat or ask questions you will need to register for a free Stickam account. Go ahead and register now, so you won’t have to worry about it this weekend.

If there’s any questions, or anything we missed, make sure to post a comment and let us know. Otherwise that should cover it. Thanks for checking in, and we’ll see you this weekend!
