Uncle Brutha's hot sauce

Uncle Brutha's hot sauce

I might have a had little freak out when I saw, in my inbox, an email from UNCLE BRUTHA himself. If you read my blog, you know I’m a huge fan of his hot sauces. I have like four in my pantry stocked up for emergency no-hot sauce situations.

Well, he needs your help! After delivering some hot sauces to Next Door, his car was burglarized, and his briefcase, with some very important papers, was stolen. In his words, “I would really appreciate getting it back. While I can’t offer a monetary reward for its return there’s certainly some Uncle Brutha’s hot sauce in it for anyone who happens to find it. (I hope that doesn’t seem corny but that really is the best I can offer right now. )”

So please, keep an eye out for any briefcases you might see around U street (he says there were no credit cards or money in the briefcase, so it might have been dumped once the vandal realized this) and send him an email (BrennanG@unclebrutha.com)  if you find anything.

He also told me very soon, local Giant stores will start carrying his sauces, as well. Help Uncle Brutha out!

Finally, Uncle Brutha's!

Finally, Uncle Brutha's!

I had noticed that Ben’s Next Door served my favorite hot sauce, by Uncle Brutha’s, which immediately earned the restaurant credibility in my book. However, when I recently ran out of my supply, I beleaguered the fact that I couldn’t find another hot sauce that stood up to it, and was having trouble locating the stuff since their store closed at Eastern Market. Then I saw PoP’s post on Uncle Brutha’s, saying they’d opened a temporary store in Adams Morgan. Great! However, I walked over there and it turns out the temporary store has closed. Sizing up my options and considering buying on the Internet, I saw that Uncle Brutha’s website had been updated to tell me that Next Door not only serves their hot sauce, they sell it as well.

Score!

I went in after work today, to stock up on my Uncle Brutha’s. I don’t think anyone else had come in to buy it, but they were helpful and courteous as they got the sauce and wrung me up. So hot sauce fiends, here’s a tip: buy your Uncle Brutha’s at Next Door.
