I have been lucky to attend this amazing event three year in a row and it has grew quite in popularity with tickets being sold out within minutes. And I find myself once again glue to my computer and phone at the same time trying to get us tickets. With the tickets site crashing within minutes, I thought I didn't get the tickets but after a few hours I was told that my transaction went through and I got 2 tickets for the 1st night... Yay!!! Then my luck went further, I was offer a Media pass and won a extra one from @AbbeysKitchen for the 2nd day. I was on cloud nine (>_<)
Held once again at the iconic Honest Ed's parking lot, I was expecting to be transported to a magical place once again (see last year's post here) then came the news of severe thunderstorm warning. I end up getting wet from head to toe just from lining up outside even though I had my umbrella, so I'm sorry about the quality of the pictures since I only used my phone while the DLSR was safely tucked inside my bag.
I was starting to get worried that there won't be much food being served when the rain and win kept coming as the event start. Good thing that it stop within the first 45 minutes and all of those electrical cooking equipments are back to work. The weather was really no ones fault and everyone seems to think so. Everyone from the event goers and the vendors seems to be in a cheery mood, no one minded being wet and the puddles. Just have to love my city and what we are willing to go through for a good time and good food.
Tickets are $65 and it's all you can eat and drink and feel free to go back for 2nd or 3rds, but frankly I didn't manage to try everything.
