      How many pieces of fried chicken do you need to eat to get anywhere near $45 worth?

          The problem with most of these food festivals is the mechanics. Parking, getting in the site, then lines. Getting served, finally, and finding a place to sit down to enjoy it. More lines for a beverage, a new line for your second choice. Maybe one person in your group saving a table and having to fend off (justifiably) frustrated interlopers. Trying to possibly justify the high expenditure (yes, I know it is for charity, usually) while you are scoping the shortest or fastest-moving line. Finding you are in the wrong line, or getting close when your booth runs out of the item you've been waiting for. Where to find a bathroom, and a line there. And did I mention the lines?!?

            The price for a ticket would be 40.50 if there was no charity attached,

              Yes,but who has ever heard of Jitlada frying chicken?
              That, to me, is worth a little effort and money...I do not recall that being on the menu at the restaurant.

                and running out of food when there's a long line of customers... only to watch the chefs consuming the last of their food as we scramble for another line to stand in.

              Yeah I'm curious. Is it one friend chicken per chef or just one friend chicken?

              sounds delicious but $45 for fried chicken is laughable. Beers or not.

                  barely more expensive than Bouchon fried chicken, way less than momofuku fried chicken.
