Finding Delicious @ 2019 Summer Fancy Food Show: Part 2

Hello again my friends and let me continue with where we left off with yesterday’s installment. We are now exploring the third and final day of the Specialty Food Association’s “Summer Fancy Food Show” and as previously mentioned this is my own third year attending. I love this show and learning about more delicious treats just makes me happy. It’s a great day to be inside the Javits Center since its so brutally hot out there. I tell you that its as hot as the South were I was visiting last week so being in the air conditioning walking the aisles taking notes and tasting samples is my kind of day. As with my earlier chapter (HERE), I will chime in as needed as the narrative plays along. Company links will live at the close.

Thought we’ve already established that we among the working press for the event, I always love to showcase the credentials which are being protected by our trust Thinktank Photo credentials holder.  It’s safe to show this off since I hid my bar code and now no shenanigans can happen.

Finding Delicious @ 2019 Summer Fancy Food Show: Part 1

Hello my friends and let me begin this one by asking how the summer has been treating you. So far it’s not been too super hot but as you know, its still only the tail end of June and July and August are often finding us seeking shelter from the heat. I’m just back from visiting my family down South and am catching up with as much of the second day of the Specialty Food Organization’s “Summer Fancy Food Show” as is possible. This is my third year attending as a member of the press and its a treat to share some delicious finds with the readers of this lifestyle website. Let’s get moving. I will chime in as needed as the narrative plays along.

Exploring Opportunity @ International Franchise Expo 2019

Readers of our adventures here on “The Chronicles” and even those who are over on the PiercingMetal side of the fence know that we always love exploring the amazing conventions and trade shows that happen in our metropolis. During this time of the year I am exploring the aisles of the Book Expo which takes over the main expo floor of the Javits Center but this year I noticed that the International Franchise Expo was taking place in the downstairs event space so I asked about the media opportunities at the registration desk and found myself with a press badge to explore the aisles.

As I had some people to see before the Book Expo ended I would need to return tomorrow for its last day. There were some good smells wafting out into the lobby area so I am thinking there are a few food franchises to examine. My plan is to snap images for the Official Instagram as well so remember to hit that.

PiercingKen’s Adventures At Book Expo America 2014

The Book Expo America or “BEA” for 2014 started the other day over at the Javits Center and I was happy to once again be a member of the press in attendance. The event spans three days and locks out the first two to professionals and press with the final day being open house for the general public. My coverage from across the two days that I was in attendance can be found on the PiercingMetal.com site and you can check out the presentation by clicking the logo directly below this paragraph. As has been my practice in the past, my main interests at this event are to focus on the film and comic book properties that my PiercingMetal readership enjoys along with any related music tomes. I hope you will join us over there by clicking through.

I’ve kept the chapters to about fifty images apiece as I have done in the past with the Comic Con and Toy Fair narratives to allow for the ease of enjoyment and maximum engagement of the folks being discussed. Since the coverage is on my other site, I have also disabled comments and pingbacks on this post but encourage they be left on those PiercingMetal narratives should you feel inclined to chime in. I’ll see you here again soon with more interesting and unique postings as they come to me.

PiercingKen’s Adventures At Book Expo America 2011

Readers of my music journalist adventures and narratives who are keeping tabs of what I do over on PiercingMetal.com and its companion Blog are probably already fully aware of my recent outing to the Blogworld & New Media Expo 2011 which was held at the Javits Center on Manhattan’s West Side this past week.  I attended said convention for the exhibition floor only in order to see what I might learn as a person whose brand is firmly entrenched in the world wide web and its Blogosphere.  The Javits Center as an event space was no longer new to me as a media scribe for I had been on point to cover 2010’s NY Comic Con and Anime Festival as well as the absolutely incredible Toy Fair 2011.
