Nintendo had a small section of their own which was quite popular.  Several new and recent games were on display to try out and those attending were able to try and win a prize.  I am a TERRIBLE gamer so it took me a little doing.

Hello again my friends and “Welcome Back” to another exciting installment from the 2018 “Sweet Suite” that was held very recently over at the Pier 60 event space. As previously mentioned in Part 1 (seen HERE), this incredible event is organized by the folks at The Toy Insider and since there is a lot to see let’s get right on down to business with this mega-sized Iron Man playset from Hasbro. Isn’t it awesome? I think so.

Hello my friends and welcome back to another exciting adventure here on “The Chronicles”. The summer was here in full sway and while its getting hot, the special events and happenings are even hotter. One such event that we have recently enjoyed is the “Sweet Suite” that is curated by our friends over at The Toy Insider.  Longer tenured site readers know about them already but the newbies might need a tad bit of education about them.

The Toy Insider is a collective of industry experts that examine and share the findings about the hottest toys and games that are hitting the shelves and the “Sweet Suite” event is where they bring in the companies behind these items and put them face to face with those YouTube personalities, Social Media Influencers and members of the media (that’s us).  The event was once again held at Pier 60 down in the Chelsea Piers area and when you walked in there was this awesome Statue of Liberty greeting you.  This was made with a 3D printer to my knowledge.

This ballroom maze was also at the entrance for those who chose to brave it.  I did but sadly there is no video of me doing it although I did shoot a clip of the whole thing from the pathway you see to the right in this image.  It was really cool.

Incendiary Doings @ NYC Hot Sauce Expo 2018: Part 1

It seems like only yesterday that we were heading over to Williamsburg for the 1st Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo which was a brand-new event started by our friends over at High River Sauces. That was six years ago and while the first couple of events were discussed on my PiercingMetal.com website, I’ve been keeping them here as a part of the Lifestyle vibe that you get with “The Chronicles” for the last few years.

With this being the sixth such expo for me, I will admit that its gotten a little tricky in how to deliver the fun to your device of choice so I am just going to walk around and see what I see and snap what I snap.  The links at the bottom will take you to a number of vendors and their wares.  Let’s go.
