PiercingKen Gets “Hotter Than Hell” @ 4th Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo (4/24/2016)

It was just a few short days ago that I documented one of the latest adventures on my Lifestyle Blog “The Chronicles Of PiercingKen” as I was once again in attendance at the awesome NYC Hot Sauce Expo which is presented by High River Sauces and Heartbreaking Dawns. While the first three events were showcased right here for your enjoyment, the time has come for that sort of event to live on the Lifestyle Blog and that makes this narrative serve you as a quick notice and traffic sign to the content. I’ve been using The Chronicles for a LOT of awesome NYC happenings since the 3rd Expo and since I love talking about food over there the transfer is a good one. Clicking the Official Poster down below will bring you over to the content and I hope that you enjoy it enough to maybe join me at a future expo.

Now since we are a Metal Media website, I had to share the news that we ran into a couple of friends of ours at the event because not only are they rockers to the 11th degree, but they also have their own brand of hot sauce that will set your palate on fire. Chris is a part of the High River Sauces family and here we see him holding his award winning hot sauce “Tears O’ The Sun” along with his brand new solo album “Your Heaven Is Real”. I’ll put some links down at the bottom for you to order each of them on Amazon.com

Also, let’s not forget the great Eddie Ojeda of the mighty Twisted Sister. He also has his own blend of liquid heat that I think all of his fans will enjoy. If you go to the expo next year its pretty safe to assume that each of these two gents will be there and I am sure that they wouldn’t mind you bringing any Savatage or Twisted Sister albums that you wanted signed. You might also have to purchase a hot sauce but in my humble opinion that is a winning situation for sure.

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

I had to laugh when I realized that I was once again heading to the Hot Sauce Expo after having attended a crushing Metal show the night before. In this particular case I was actually at a few shows in sequence but that is just the way life rolls in a Metal Metropolis such as this one. Last night was the final night of tour for Children Of Bodom and that is not easy to pass up but now that this stuff had completed it was again time to offer up an objective and informative view of this year’s Hot Sauce Expo. I attended last year and it was a blast and of course I am not just speaking about the levels of heat that would invade my stomach at that affair but instead just a damned good time. This year’s Expo offered a few changes that I felt immediately worked out for the better and the first was that it would be in Manhattan, at the Penn Plaza Pavilion. This particular space often plays host to Comic Conventions and with it being indoors would not have weather as a concern for vendors and the all so important patrons with the money. Some readers might recall that last year’s Expo was held outdoors in East River Park down in Williamsburg. Once again I would be a journalistic guest of the fine folks at High River Sauces and was not going to decline based on our having known them for years now. They have a killer sauce from Savatage’s Chris Caffery among many others and I would be hoping to catch Eddie Ojeda once again since this year is the 30th Anniversary of Twisted Sister’s seminal release “Stay Hungry”. This year I would endeavor to be better prepared for the onslaught and brought along some unsalted crackers to ensure that I had a proper coating if necessary in my stomach. Sampling hot sauce after hot sauce after hot sauce was going to do me in otherwise and I wanted to avoid that.

As I approached my second go round at the event I thought back to the enjoyable time that was last year’s happening and should you want to see that report just click HERE. As mentioned, one of the main organizers of the affair is Steve Seabury of High River Sauces and since there are Rock notables often present it made sense to visit this one more time. Check out the poster. It’s cool isn’t it? Trust me, this was going to be one of the only cool things that would be encountered across the course of the day and I am speaking about temperature. Now it was time to get a little spicy.
