Piercing Ken Thoughts: Though it’s been logistically difficult to travel to as many places that I might want to adventure to, the NY Times Travel Show helps me realize that I need to do this for my own well-being. “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken have gone to this event twice and hope to do so once more this coming January. Our readers are going to want to follow the outlet on the Official Socials of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so they are able to come along with us every step of the way. Sure there is a public component to the event but the first day is the trade only and select media. I’m looking forward to seeing the friends that I’ve made over the last couple of years. What do you readers in the public sector think? Does this event interest you at all? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
