PUNK ROCK HOT DOGS IS BAAAAAAAACK! And this time, it’s dressed in BLACK! (Because it’s the GOTH edition)
10 COMPETITORS! 9 JUDGES! THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE!
Punk Rock Hot Dogs is the whackiest, wildest, craziest annual food event in Asheville, and this year we have the best line-up of Gothic Glizzy Gladiators we’ve ever had:
Mother Ocean Market Asheville, Sand Hill Kitchen, Pupuseria Paty Asheville, Storm Rhum Bar and Bistro, Bear’s Smokehouse BBQ, The Odd, CREAM WORKS, Bigfoot-Longs, Asheville hot dogs, and Huli Sue’s BBQ and Grill
REMEMBER: ONE ticket admits TWO people, who share TEN hot dogs and cast TWO votes for People’s Choice!
Punk Rock Hot Dogs is the only food competition in Asheville in which the People’s Choice is REAL. Your ticket gets you all ten dogs to try, so that you can make an informed decision when it comes time to vote! The judges’ panel takes it one step further by being a blind taste test!
Winners will receive awards, a prizes, bragging rights, accolades, street cred, honor among their peers & a place in hot dog history!
Here’s a look at last year’s 10 competitors, starting with the Judge’s Choice winner, Cultura, in the upper left, and the People’s Choice, The Malvern next to it. Chef Eric Morris from Cultura sits on our judges’ panel this year, while Chef Chris Cox from The Malvern is now representing Mother Ocean Market, hoping to keep the People’s Choice in his corner, as well as the Judge’s Choice!
