Exploring Book Expo 2017: Little Golden Books @ Javits Center

As noted in previous posts, we’ve been exploring the 2017 edition of the Book Expo, which many might recall was once referred to as Book Expo America and has been discussed for a few years on this and the PiercingMetal.com website. Readers can check out some historical archive by clicking HERE. This year, in addition to the larger convention presentation, I’d like to shine a spotlight on some of the special stuff and one such company is Little Golden Books.

This years convention had a colorful truck that was celebrating the companies 75th Anniversary and inside said truck was a walk-through of their history. I figured that this would be of great interest to those who were not able to attend. Enjoy.

Exploring Book Expo 2017 @ Javits Center (Part One)

Greetings my friends, I am happy to report that I am once again attending the Book Expo as a member of the press.  The event used to be called Book Expo America but it was rebranded a couple of years ago.  It also moved to Chicago for a year so we missed out on it but now its back in the New York Groove and I couldn’t be happier.   Below is what the Media Badge looked like and here we go.

Good morning and “Welcome Back” to another installment from my coverage of the 2017 NYC Hot Sauce Expo that took place a few days ago over at the Brooklyn Expo Center. This years event was the fifth annual and as I’ve noted in the previous chapter, we’ve been in attendance and covering this since the very first one. The interesting thing about that was at first it was an event feature on my PiercingMetal.com website but with “The Chronicles” picking up steam as a Lifestyle and Culture Blog, I’ve been doing this coverage here. Those who might want to see those articles in the archive can click HERE to bring up a proper tag. Please be aware that some calendar listings will manifest as well based on how WordPress works.

Has it been a year already? Well I guess that it has but here we are once again and ready to sear our senses with the findings at the annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo. This is the fifth straight one and if you love that spicy elixir and haven’t paid a visit to the event yet, please click HERE to see the past event overviews. Once again the event would take place at the Brooklyn Expo Center which we like quite a bit. Let’s get right on down to the photos and some awesome vendors.

My train ride to the event today left my brain a little frazzled so I didn’t know how I wanted to begin my exploration.  I figured a quick wander first before photos would be a good idea and that makes me begin with some cool offerings at the Hellfire Hot Sauce table.  In addition to the incendiary elixirs, they make some awesome accessories and jewelry.

Scenes From The New York International Auto Show 2017: Part 4

Hello again my friends and welcome to another installment of my photographic presentation from the 2017 NY International Auto Show. I’m picking up where I left off in CHAPTER THREE, so hopefully you’ve seen that one first before continuing along. Click that highlighted text if you haven’t because I am not in a rush here at all. As I’ve noted already, I attended one day of the massive event and did so for free thanks to the fine folks at Toyota who were giving away a whole bunch of tickets. I wasn’t “press” for this happening but maybe next year I will look into that. Here we go. I will not be talking much during these photos.
