Hotter'N Hell: Spaghetti Dinner

Posted: Updated:

The annual Hotter'N Hell Spaghetti Dinner was on August 23rd. The doors opened at 5:00 PM and closed around 9:30 PM. A lot of the riders used the dinner as a chance to load up on carbohydrates, so they would have enough energy to get through the race. But the meal means so much more to many of the racers, riders, and spectators.

There was over 2 tons of pasta, 14 thousand breadsticks, and about 6 hundred gallons of sauce prepared for the dinner. Event coordinators expected to serve all that food to about 4 thousand people.

Spaghetti Dinner Chairman Rick Hatcher said we are going to have delicious spaghetti, salad, breadsticks, cookies, and drinks.

One of the reasons why so many came out to the dinner was to fill up on carbohydrates.

Hatcher said "Riders need to loud up with carbohydrates as much as they can the night before the ride and supposed ably it makes them do better and we are here to help everyone do better."

But that is not the only reason why they came out for dinner.

Hatcher said the dinner has become more of a social event with people coming from all over the United States.

The event is also a fundraiser. The Texas Restaurant Association donates its proceeds back to the community. Interfaith Ministries also gained some of the proceeds.
