Grilled cheese fest is a disaster!

I'm sure a lot of angry chowhounders are here. Let's vent and raise awareness so that people are not suckered into future Joylister events.

      hearing they oversold by 700 tickets.
      people aren't being let in.
      people inside are incredibly crowded.

          Those pictures tell an incredible and hilarious story of yearning, betrayal and heartache.

          I need to grab me a pack of costco hot dogs, set up "hot dog fest," and charge $40 a head. I'll even throw in the ketchup for free.

          I posted earlier on the event. Not a prize-winning review but provided a bit of info... Oh... was only able to taste the Construction Site's mac & cheese grilled cheese (soo good) because I offered to help the production guy. Line ups everywhere were just too long. Too many people, not enough support, poor planning. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/967266

        3. $45 for grilled cheese in the lobby of Roy Thompson Hall? No wonder everyone's upset

          1. Serves em right. Grilled cheese "fest " indeed! Ha!
            "there's a sucker born every minute"

            1. Pay $45 to eat grilled cheese among a crowd of strangers?

              $45 for Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.

              Grilled cheese. $45.

              Are things that boring in Toronto?

              1. Everyone thought it was a grill cheesefest and showed up for free g.c and was told they had to buy $45 ones so everyone got pissed off and left?
