I arrived late to the event and was able to hit every place I wanted to go try without running into one vendor who had run out of..... ANYTHING. Sounds like a bunch of people reviewed an event they did not attend.... why review something you didn't go to just to talk bad about it?
I went without eating with plans to get dinner after the event which turned into a few drinks instead because I ate my fill. The food was unbelievable, CSF, Cotton, Mint Bistro, Z Food, ect... all showed with unique samplers that were fresh, perfectly prepared and delicious.
I'm sorry to hear the few that had bad past experiences but leave it to those who attended to review. Overall the event was a great success this year, there was a crowd but the restaurants did a great job of moving the lines along and there was no more than a few minute wait at each station.
We attended the last two hours of the event and were able to hit almost all the food vendors and like I said, there was plenty of fresh food in decent portions well worth the $20 charge. If you want to sample all the area restaurants I suggest going.
