Getting My Spice On @ NYC Hot Sauce Expo 2019: Part 1

The hot sauce fanatics of our Media Metropolis were looking forward to this years event for sure and I was happy to participate this past weekend. I signed myself up for the Saturday session of the NYC Hot Sauce Expo and was stoked as all heck to be a part of its 7th Annual Expo and to catch up with friends that I only manage to see here. Based on the need to try the samples with one hand, I decided to mostly phone photo this presentation and I am only going to talk every now and again so I hope you enjoy it all. Here we go.

I’m going to stop here with my exploration of the NYCHSE but stay tuned for some more once the fire that is inside me has subsided. I had such a good time today and cannot wait to share some more with you. To make sure that you remain in the know, I’ve culled together a number of links to the vendors discussed in this chapter so please do click through to their websites. You’ll learn what else they have and where to purchase it all. Remember that “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” is very active on the social networks and will be sharing a number of visuals and thoughts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so be sure to follow us. See you soon.

Exploring The 2019 NY Times Travel Show @ Javits Center (Part 1)

It might not surprise you to know this information, but both the New York Times Travel Show and The New York Boat Show run in tandem at the Javits Center and last year was my first time attending both of these events. I’m happy to report that I was able to secure the proper media credentials and would be exploring the Industry Day which is for the professional side of the fence and approved press.

As I’ve done with the previous year, this is mostly a visual gallery of the fun that one can have as they chart their future travel adventures. I focused on the people more than a pile of brochures so let’s go.

Greetings my sea-faring friends, we’ve arrived at the time of the year that the Progressive International New York Boat Show drops its anchor in NYC for an almost week long stay at the Javits Center. This would be my second year exploring this expo as a member of the media and the second time that I had attended since first coming with my parents so many, many years ago.

Oddly enough, based on the spacing in the registration form, I had to refer to “The Chronicles” as “The Piercing Ken Blog”. Truth be told its six of one and a half dozen of the other and sometimes to be simple I call it that anyway.

Hello again my friends and welcome back to some more visuals and commentary from the 2018 Progressive International Motorcycle Show.

I’m not the biggest expert on this industry and really only planned on sharing the sights and sharing some links along with humble commentary so I hope you enjoy it as we continue to explore this awesome show.
