Keep it hot
Chef Kim Prince is bringing her Hotville Chicken pop-up to Glendale Tap this Saturday, working a menu of seriously spicy bird from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. If the last name sounds familiar, know that Prince is indeed directly related to the famous Prince family out of Nashville, known colloquially as the originators of hot chicken itself. And while Hotville Chicken is certainly its own, separately successful business, it’s still great to see the Prince name attached to some seriously good hot chicken in LA. The weekend event is 21+ only.
