Stop by and say hello to LauraLe, Harumi, Scott, Jamie, Kyle, Lisa and Nicolas. Read on for a sneak peek of products + their favorite hot bites and sips around the Bay Area…
Oxgut Hose Co.
Made of Oakland Fire hose, the Firewood Carrier by OxgutHose Co. is an ironic log carrier for beach or cabin, AND great for beach blankets, gardening – roses, branches, agave and more.
The most ironic way to start a fire, ever! Great house warming gift, literally.
Planning on beating the San Mateo Firefighters in the HOT WING challenge and winning a weekend getaway to Calistoga’s Hot Springs? Perfect. Jet-setters and weekenders will love the Hunter Dopp and Fran Tote – the ideal HOT travel items.
Oxgut Hose Co.’s owner, LauraLe recommends The Leatherneck (Spicy Cocktail) at Pizzaiolo in Oakland.
This Black & White tank top is timeless and it fits into any lifestyle scene. Stroll around the town with your furry friend in style! Make sure you have a Haute Dog, visit the Etsy store for a sneak peek here.
Harumi’s favorite hot bite/drink: I love Korean Kimchi fried rice from Toyose in Sunset district in San Francisco. Spicy Drink I love: Sriracha Bloody Mary!
Lucy Dog Hot Sauce
Lucky Dog’s newest hot sauce is Year of the Dog, an all-natural Thai Chile Pineapple Hot Sauce, and it is truly unique. Rather than a sweet and mild “fruity tropical sauce”, Year of the Dog is hot, savory and versatile, 3 qualities not normally associated with pineapple hot sauces. Sure to be the next award-winning sauce from Lucky Dog, Year of the Dog shines on any Asian food, but is right at home on tacos al pastor or carnitas, on pizza and sandwiches and pretty much anything!
Scott swears the best spicy drink in the SF Bay Area has to be the Lucky Dog at the Stein Room Lounge in Hayward, CA – this is hands-down the best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had, and it’s made with Hayward’s own Lucky Dog Hot Sauce Black Label!
GoSun Solar Stoves
You don’t have to see the Sun to cook! GoSun Sport is the next evolution in fuel-free cooking. The GoSun Sport is so effective, almost no day is off limits! “We took our GoSun Stove to Burning Man last year and we couldn’t be happier with it. Truly loved cooking several meals with it and the green nature of the stove was appreciated by everyone who saw it! We cooked for every meal of the day, ranging from eggs over medium to sausage and potatoes to warming up burritos. We’re going back this year and our stove is going back with us.” – Chun Lim
Jamie Simon at GoSun Solar Stoves says, “We love the Asiento Burger for a late night snack in the Mission.”
Hella Hot Hot Sauce
Check out the newly launched line, a collaboration with circus sideshow performers that was recently showcased at Freakshow Wrestling in Las Vegas! Recently reviewed on tastingtheheat.com, Tasting The Heat says about Sword Swallower, “It will hit you in the back of the throat and you’ll feel the burn all the way down. The combination of ingredients works so well together to bring you a completely different type of jalapeno hot sauce. With the addition of apple and citrus juice, the flavor takes a turn when the ginger is added along with the onion, garlic, herbs and spices.” View more reviews.
Kyle loves The Poor House Bistro’s Chicken Po Boy in San Jose and Campbell Brewing Company’s St. Paine Belgian ale!
