Greetings my caffeine loving readers, I am back with the second chapter or dare I say “second cup” of coverage from this years New York Coffee Festival and I am glad that you are joining me once again here at “The Chronicles”. My first examination can be found HERE for those who missed it, and as expected I will be picking up from where I left off. I went up to the second flood for the first bunch of photos to see the varied vendors that were up there.
Yes my friends we are back with another installment from the exploration of the Specialty Food Association’s “Summer Fancy Food Show”. I’m back to share all the delicious findings with you. Let’s start with my friends from the NYC Hot Sauce Expo who had a booth for their respective sauces. If you’ve never attended this expo and love the spicy side of life you should click HERE to see what you are missing.
The folks at Funny Farm Foods were serving up a big bowl of Mac n Cheese and by the time I saw them I was famished. Yes one can get hungry at a food expo. Remember you need to be wise with the sampling to avoid getting yourself sick. These folks stuff hit the spot proper.
So that’s going to bring me to the end of the exploring from my first day at the convention. I’m going to stop now but don’t worry I will be back with another chapter tomorrow. 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. Before you go, we also ask that you click through on the links provided below to learn more about the people we’ve visited in this chapter.

I was really excited to be attending the Specialty Food Association’s “Summer Fancy Food” show once again because last year was just such a great time for me. It’s events such as this one that make me glad that I started “The Chronicles” Lifestyle Blog. I’ll be talking here and there during this photographic wandering and offering my opinions on certain things as I deem necessary.
I’m going to need to pop into the Press Office and get my badge to explore the floor and this year my plan is to be a little more organized than I managed to do the last time around. To say that this show is massive would be an understatement.
As you can see by the badge, sometimes based on the space in the registration form, I need to use the simpler “Piercing Ken Blog” title. Who knows, maybe I need to modify the title altogether at some point.
Hello there readers it’s nice to see you returning for another convention exploration. I have to say that it’s been a whole lot of busy here at the Media Command HQ with the Book Expo that we attended almost two weeks ago and was documented HERE in case you missed it. Then I headed over to my grandmothers old neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn to attend the Five Points Festival for PiercingMetal.com and you can see that by clicking its name. I was back that day after, the Sunday for the Book Con but had to hold off on the narrative based on my wrangling one of the “final” shows by the legendary Thrash Metal titans Slayer. That report will hit PiercingMetal as well of course and now its time to share the coolness and the faces we met at the 2018 Book Con.
Welcome back my friends its so nice to see you again. You have arrived at my third and final chapter of the exploration of the 2018 Book Expo. This massive publishing industry event was once again taking over the Javits Center for a few days and we are on point to show you what is going on with some of our favorite publishers and to see what might be a brand-new discovery. If you missed the previous chapter please click HERE to bring up the stuff so far presented. I will start off with the folks at Ampersand which is a digital subscription service aimed at bringing discoveries that speak to your interests right to your tablet.
Here’s the folks at Blackwing. They make high end writing instruments and accessories. Perfect gifts for those who don’t seem at ease with the cheap stuff like myself.
