All Work & No Play at the K

I had sore feet at the end of every day—all eight of them—at the K 2016 show. But there were chances to relax at numerous hospitality events.

I had sore feet at the end of every day—all eight of them—at the K 2016 show. But there were chances to relax at numerous hospitality events.

 

One of them, which I gather is a K Show tradition, is the Viking-themed after-show booth party thrown by Rapid of Sweden (parent of Rapid Granulator, Inc. in Cranberry Township, Pa.). Horned helmets, shots of akvavit, and little fishy snacks topped off a day of booth-hopping interspersed with innumerable press conferences.
