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

nyc hot sauce expo poster 2019, nyc hot sauce expo

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.

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.
