On this day in 2015, I had my first taste of hot chicken. It was love at first bite. The line for @eugeneshotchicken was out the door during a special pop-up shop presented by @revbham. One hundred and fifteen chicken dinners were sold that night. And even though this happened well before his food truck or his new restaurant in Uptown, I knew that Zebbie, the owner, would be a success. I'm so proud of how far he's come. If you haven't had Eugene's Hot Chicken, what are you waiting for? It's a definite "do"
In #Birmingham. And since @foodandwine mag is moving from NYC to #bhAm, the staff needs to check out Eugene's for hot chicken done right. Special side note: One way Zebbie saw his dream become a reality, was by participating in @revbham's @costarters' program. It helps entrepreneurs know what's needed to run a successful biz. Hit up @deongordon for details on the next set of classes. #eeeeeats #inbirmingham
