Taste of Charleston - anyone been, anyone going this year?

We'll be in town during the Taste of Charleston, Oct. 8 & 9 2011. Has anyone been in the past? What are your thoughts? The cost to get in is $15.00 in advance, $20.00 at the door, for each day. Does this cost cover your "tastes" or are they additional? How late does it run? The website says the doors open at 10:30 am, but I can't find a closing time. Is there a bar, or just soft drinks? Is it usually mobbed, so as to be more of a hassle than a fun time? I'd really appreciate your "professional advice." Thanks!

  1. Hi, OP here, just noticed on the website, that the admission is just that, for the pleasure of walking in the door. Tastes are additional. That's pretty much a deal breaker for me. Too expensive! Thanks anyway.
