Poca's Hottest serves up delicious food and music at Will's Pub


Whether you like your sauce smoky, sweet or hotter than hell, Poca’s Hottest Sauce Cook Off is the place to find the flavors you’ve been craving. This annual parking lot party features local craft vendors, live music and all the hot sauce you can handle. You’ll have to splurge on a tasting ticket to try the cookoff competition entries, but there’s a complimentary taco bar included with admission. Poca’s is known for its themed condiments inspired by local musicians and artists, and many of them, including Rocketfish, Jessy Lynn Martens and FunkUs, plan to perform at the party. But the real way to warm up your insides won’t be with Fiddle Fire sauce, but with a donation to the cook off’s fundraiser for Fern Creek Elementary School’s food bank, which also allows guests to score the hot deal of $5 off admission by bringing along nonperishable food items. 

with Thomas & Olivia Wynn, Kaleigh Baker, Terri Binion, Jessy Lynn Martens, Rocketfish, Milka | 1 p.m. Sunday, April 3 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $12
