Oct 20th

Hot Wings and Hot Ones
Darren McCarty + Hell Fire Detroit + Chef Michael Barrera
UCP/Detroit & The Detroit Red Wing Alumni Association

Brace yourself team
This frame experience where food, sports, and pop culture intersect, is not for the faint at heart.

The What: We start with frame’s communal tables lined with the Season 9 Hot Sauce lineup from YouTube’s Hot Ones , the pop culture show with hot questions and even hotter wings. With our own cities Habanero in house, from Hell Fire Detroit.

Former Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cup Champion, Darren McCarty will talk about life, love and the truth about sports — while he suffers the pain of eating hot wings with an interview that gets hotter and hotter … with each sauce. He is interviewed by Jay Adams, former professional wrestler of 13 years, current tv and movie stuntman and iconic UCP Puckster hockey player. Darren starts with the first wing with a mild sauce; with the final sauce reaching a super hot Scoville rating of over 2,000,000.

Now to the interactive part: in the heat index order below of the Season 9 Sauces, we too experience the heat rise with our own set of wings and sauces with a wings feast prepared by Chef Michael Barrera:

Hot Ones | The Classic. Heat 2/10
Sauce Bae | Skinny Habanero Hot Sauce. Heat 2/10
Shaquanda’s | Hot Pepper Sauce. Heat 3/10
Lucky Dog | Year of the Dog. Heat 4/10
Hot Ones | Los Calientes. Heat 5/10
Hell Fire Detroit | Habanero. Heat 6/10
Wiltshire Chili Farm | Trinidad Scorpion. Heat 7/10
Puckerbutt Pepper Co. | Chocolate Plague. Heat 9/10
Hot Ones | The Last Dab Carolina Reaper Edition. Heat 11/10

The Why: To raise funds with very good people. Proceeds from this frame experience proudly benefit UCP/Detroit & Michigan which assists individuals with disabilities and their families to access much-needed service, support and resources that help make “Life without Limits” not just a dream, but a reality.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
