Sriracha. Food. Cocktails. Cornhole. Chinatown. A perfect Sunday.

On Sunday, I attended the 2nd Annual Los Angeles Sriracha Festival held in historic Chinatown.  It was an incredible day.  Unbelievable hand-crafted cocktails. To-die-for food {the sriracha-addict inside of my celebrated all day long}. Cornhole {a new venture on my part… and one that I enjoyed immensely}.  A good deal of laughing, imbibing, and feasting.  The event was hosted by Randy Clemens of The Sriracha Cookbook and Joshua Lurie of FoodGPS.  I wish I could put this day on repeat.  Additionally, I wish I could eat everything again {10x over}. #SrirachaFest
