That’s right, 1st place in Chicken Wings
Burn Baby Burn
Months ago we witnessed EWintern Andrew Hitz take the Hot Mama’s Wings Kamikaze Challenge and nearly hemorrhage. In an event that requires contestants to eat nine unreasonably spicy wings in six minutes, Hitz destroyed previous records by decimating all nine wings in two minutes and forty eight seconds. We were impressed.
But records are made to be broken. And as is the case with any sport, there is always someone somewhere who is better than you. No shame in that reality — there are monsters out there.
Jacob Keeton is a monster. Monday, May 14, he stomped Hitz’s achievement into the dust of forgotten things. He can handle spice in a way that defies human limits. He is the lone Hot Mama’s Wings Kamikaze Smackdown champion…more

One Hot Open Mic
For nine years the Monroe Street Café hosted an open mic night that brought the west Eugene neighborhoods together as a community. When that joint closed down, the musicians, poets and performers who frequented the open mic each Wednesday night went searching for a new place to gather.
“Monroe Street (Café) had a family; when it shut down it felt like we were homeless,” says Emily Erickson, Monroe Street Café Open Mic night patron. The 20-something sits with her friends at the completely packed, recently opened Hot Mamas Wings on 13th Avenue. It is Monday night, and Hot Mamas Wings is hosting their fairly new weekly open mic; all of the old Monroe Street crowd…more

Community, style and strong drinks are all that one can ask for in an open mic venue. Hot Mama’s delivers this and more.
Being at the Hot Mama’s open mic feels like you stepped into a laidback party where all of your friends have the guts to get up on the microphone and throw down something special.
