Do you readers remember when I attended the 1st Annual Hot Sauce Expo back in April of this year? WHAT!!! You don’t???? How dare you I scream with a slight smile and if this is the case, please click HERE to know what I am talking about because its going to be helpful when it comes to this post. Okay so you are back and please allow me to get on a soapbox and let you all know that not only will there be a 2nd Annual Hot Sauce Expo, but the tickets are on sale now – commence cheering 🙂
As you can see by the poster above, this year’s event moves from Brooklyn into Manhattan and instead of being outdoors will lay down its incendiary justice at the Penn Plaza Pavilion. It arrives almost a month earlier this year but it remains at two days which is good since I think I can only attend on the Sunday based on my own schedule. There are a lot of things to enjoy for attendees and if you can swing the special VIP package, let me tell you that its just a wee bit better an experience. Now if I can offer a word of advice, I will suggest that you do not 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. The event itself was announced a few weeks ago and I am only getting to posting it now based on the tickets just being made available for purchase. 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.
Below you will find some of the hot sauces from the event organizers brand along with a fun-filled Metal themed cookbook that will test your taste buds level of heavy.
