Throwback Thursday – 2009 – Boss of the Sauce [PHOTOS]

Boss of the Sauce 2009

Let’s take a trip back in time to April ’09 for Boss of the Sauce. It was our first year (and last) at the Pine Belt Arena (was called Ritacco Center back in 2009) in Toms River.

Boss of the Sauce turned into such a HUGE event,  that the Woodlake Country Club ,and the Holiday Inn in Toms River couldn’t hold us. (One year the fire department almost shut us down for crowd control) We need a bigger place!

The Pine Belt Arena was big enough for the crowds, BUT they had a strict alcohol policy where the drinkers were roped into a little drinking section. Ever since that year, Boss of the Sauce has taken place at Jenkinson’s in Point Pleasant. Sorry Pine Belt, drinking is important :-)

I remembered it poured the entire day. I can still picture all the Hawk listeners waiting in line in the pouring rain waiting for us to open the doors. It was all worth while though once they got to sample all the incredible food

It was a great night. Great food. Great music from River City Extension, and the judges choice winner for 2009 Boss of the Sauce was Fratello’s in Sea Girt.

Enjoy these photos from Boss of the Sauce, and I already can’t wait til this year’s Boss of the Sauce!
