Piercing Ken Thoughts: Sorry to help share along the sad news to anyone in the readership who attends this event but since its always a popular calendar entry for “The Chronicles” I figured that I should share along the press release that I got when I inquired about an event for this year. I’ve never actually attended this one since Queens can be such a hike for me, but I do love some spicy eats and maybe a visit is in my future for the next time around. That’s all I have on this one. I will make mention that there is very likely this kind of cuisine at the Queens Night Market which has begun on the weekends over in Flushing Meadows Corona Park if you feel like checking that out. It sounds interesting for me as well, but is a really long ride via the MTA from my neck of the woods. Thanks for reading, please stay safe out there.
