PiercingMetal Goes To The 2nd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo (3/30/2014): Part Three

Logo - Hot Sauce Expo - 2014

As promised, I am back with a third and final installment from the 2014 NYC Hot Sauce Expo. I took a lot of photographs at this one and decided to treat it like our NY Comic Con posts and parse it out to around “50” images per post if I had that many to do. I don’t have much chatter for this segment and will let most of the images do the talking so let’s get right down to business shall we?

Hot Sauce Fans Abound!


As a long time scribe for the Metal scene and a fan of things where the presence helps make it more interesting, let’s go over to the Defcon Sauces booth.

Defcon Sauces own John Dilley is a bit of a Metalhead himself and has the outfit to prove it.

Greatly enjoyed talking to Deception Salsa’s folks. This stuff was wonderful. I love Salsa already so to give me a blend of sweet and then the heat was very nice.

The Poster

Alright my friends. That brings us to the end of this little adventure and I hope that you’ve enjoyed it because we really did. Sure its not the kind of event that you would normally expect to find on the blog of a Heavy Metal media site but sometimes you break the expected barriers and venture into new, more experimental territory. Perhaps in time I will move this kind of coverage over to my “Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” website. Please be sure to click through the websites linked below to give them support and also our own Official Socials by following the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Thanks for reading and many special thanks to our friends at High River Sauces for having us here to share our findings and be a part of the fun.
