The Statement:
We wanted to reach out and let you know that we are moving the dates of the NYC Hot Sauce Expo to October 16 & 17, 2021. As more and more people are getting vaccinated and businesses are starting to open up we thought it would be best to postpone the event for just a little longer. Safety of ticket owners, staff and our hot sauce vendors has and will always be our top priority.

The tickets you have purchased are 100% good for the October dates. If you cannot make these new dates I completely understand and will 100% grant you a refund.

Flame Con Offers An Update On 2021 Event

The Press Release:
To our queer geek community, 2021 has finally arrived, and with it we begin a new year of planning for this year’s Flame Con! 2020 presented us with several hard decisions and new challenges, especially around how best to keep everyone safe and provide as much of a Flame Con experience as possible. Several decisions were entirely out of our hands. 2021 is presenting us with very similar challenges.

COVID-19 continues to be the primary factor in our ability to hold an in person event safely. We are still in contract with the Sheraton Times Square, but are largely at the mercy of the venue’s priorities, the laws governing the city of New York and, of course, the pace of vaccine distribution across the country. Like many conventions, we currently have two imperfect options to choose from. If we preemptively cancel the event, before state & local authorities have expressly forbidden large gatherings, we forfeit our deposit with the venue. If we wait for authorities to make a decision on events like ours, we likely won’t know if an in-person Flame Con is possible until just before this August. As a non-profit with a modest budget, forfeiting the deposit to the venue would risk our ability to come back for another year. So, unfortunately, we must wait.

Presenting The 2021 AVN Awards Winners Rundown

With the majority of the world still dealing with being under quarantine as the dreaded Coronavirus Pandemic continues to rule with its terrible fist, I’m continuing to showcase any of the awards show rundowns that I learn have happened. This past year of 2020 found me introducing ones that I’ve never heard about before but would gladly add to the context of our historical archive. The AVN Awards have never been documented here before and since a big story last year was that the Pornhub service was giving away free memberships to those of age in order to keep people home. For sure it was a clever means to build up memberships and advise people to interact outside a lot less. This is found me opting to include the recently announced winners for “The Oscars of Adult Film” and I hope that those of you who follow the industry enjoy this winners list inclusion. Let’s go.
