Fear the Jorts! And the Hot Chicken

I've written about Hot Chicken and Jorts in this space every year that I've worked here at Bites, but just this year I've had the chance to spend some time with Randy Dunkerly, the man behind the event. I discovered that as the driving force behind Jubilee Beer and the alter-ego of Randy, the mulleted jorts-wearing mascot of the extremely tongue-in-cheek party that is Hot Chicken and Jorts, Dunkerly obviously doesn't take himself too seriously.

But his dedication to Oasis Center, where he works as a fundraiser, is unquestionable. A large portion of the profits from Jubilee and all the proceeds from HC&J go to benefit Oasis Center's efforts to "provide at risk youth a connection to a caring adult, a safe & secure environment and empowerment to make better choices." This represents many, many hours of work for Dunkerly and results in thousands of dollars per year for the organization.

Saturday, July 26, is fun time at Paradise Park Trailer Resort, where you are invited to let your freak flag fly from 4 to 7 p.m. as you dine on hot chicken and enjoy live music and tomfoolery. Actually, Randyfoolery.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to enter the big tater-tot eating contest and earn the title of King Tot. Tickets are just $20 for an afternoon of fun, so grab those pinking shears and hack up your Imogene + Willies. (Well, not really. Proper jorts should be made from Wranglers.)
