Our Mentions. We Spit Hot Fire.


This week, we dip our Grapes into the 2023 Banana Pudding Festival! Leave it to us to not taste a single bite of banana pudding at a festival for just that thing. Instead, we met an amazing custom pen designer, a successful hot sauce artist, and a hemp beverage brewer! Join us on the Grapevine as we accidentally do everything but the thing we meant to do!


Host Michael Aikens visits local business owners on location to discuss their motivations and perspectives, and to learn from their successes and mistakes. During this Season 3 premiere episode Michael interviews Homero Gonzalez, owner of Harmacy Hot Sauce Co. and Ben Brady, owner of CipherTek Systems, LLC.
