This is nearly double the size of last year's event. Should be good!
I went last year and weather permitting, I think I'll go again. That being said, I'd say the fair was okay. I went to try the Vendi(sp?) award winners food; and I did. But his line, as well as other vendors, quickly got really long as they struggled to keep up with demand. Also, some of the other vendors were just okay. Finally, last year it was a warm day and the limited seating, in the middle of the courtyard, was in the sun with no shade. It was pretty hot. I hope some of the logistics have been ironed for this year.

I need my glasses checked. Hah!
Their BBQ since it isn't in Manhattan around the touristy area's it goes well under the radar. As far as BBQ sides aren't all sides supposed to be towards dismal? IMO Love the Potato Salad with sliced apples in it and their chili @ the Ranger/Legends.
