Somewhere deep inside, I think we all wanted Pinky to succeed.  We figured eventually one of his hairbrained schemes might actually work.  While he didn’t reach his life achieving goal, I do believe we have a new contender that has a much better shot.  I ask myself now, why didn’t anyone tell him to start with chicken?

Hot Chicken Takeover was certainly stopping traffic on Oak St this past Saturday with some of the best hot chicken to touch my lips! World domination has to be pretty easy after that!

They combine succulent pieces of chicken with a seasoning so unique and consistent, I’m positive somebody’s Grandma got slapped.  Seriously folks, it’s that serious.  Please don’t get me started on the sides. Lawd have mercy! Bring on the food coma after that slaw and mac and cheese! Yes, please.

Leading the way into what will hopefully be a new staple in Columbus,  #hotchickentakeover definitely has the support of the Near Eastside community, pairing up with the new cooperative  to bring more awareness to what it means to #supportlocal. Thanks for bringing a bit of that Southern home cooking to the Midwest!

We can only hope others daring to be different jump into this new ‘pop up’ scene.  We’d love to be delighted with new culinary tastes from around the globe.
