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.
Well hello again my friends and welcome back to the second chapter in my incendiary documentation of the 4th Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo. I’m going to pick up where I left off with yesterday’s presentation and continue along until our photos run out. Here we go.
Yes my friends it was that time of year again for the NYC Hot Sauce Expo and if you can believe it, we are now at the 4th Annual Expo. It was once again being held at the spacious Brooklyn Expo Center which I love as an event space since its in my way back in history neighborhood of Greenpoint and is not too far from the waterfront which offers attendees a magnificent view of Manhattan. I’ll share some images of that in a post that will follow the Expo coverage. With this year’s convention I’ve decided to offer it up here on The Chronicles because truth be told its more in line with our other adventures for this site. Some of the longer time readers might remember that I covered the first three events over on PiercingMetal.com and those interested in the historical side of the event need only click HERE to see the gamut.
My Foodie Media Mission begins with my running into Purple Pam who is a Rock singer from NYC. She fronts a kickass group called The Flesh Eaters and I’ll try to get some music reviewed on the other site. Here we find Pam pitching her own brand of hot sauce and it sure did have a kick.
Today I was going to start by exploring what was happening in the VIP section before it got too crowded. It’s better to share its awesome offerings without a crowd pushing into you while you hope to get a shot. Oh and I mean one with the camera. This time around of couse. Here are the lovely ladies repping the Stoli Vodka brand.
The HEAT Is On In NYC!!!! Yep, because today and tomorrow the 2nd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo is taking place at the Penn Plaza Pavilion. Our readers will likely recall our first go round at this expo last year and if not just click HERE to refresh your pepper addled memory banks. Check the poster out below.
As I cited in the first broadcast about this event, this time around it has moved into Manhattan as opposed to being in Brooklyn and instead of being outdoors will lay down its incendiary justice at the Penn Plaza Pavilion. It remains at two days which is good for the masses and I will be attending on the second day so do say hello if you attend and see me wandering around with my camera. There are a lot of things to enjoy for attendees and if you can still swing the special VIP package, let me tell you that its just a wee bit better an experience. In my earlier post I also suggested that you didn’t explore too many hot sauces on an empty stomach and perhaps keep a small bag of Saltines or Ritz minis in your bag. Not every vendor has stuff to put the hot sauce on which I observed the last time and during my adventure I was on fire. They still tasted great but I was on fire and well, I figured it my duty to advise you a little bit. Click the Official Website link below to get your tickets while they are still available and give a “Like” to their Facebook Page so you can keep up on the adventures in their Social Networking as it happens. I hope to see a few of you there.
