  1. Should I eat an early dinner before I go to this? Was there a lot of samples last year?

  2. dieselboi says

    There are 50 vendors who are asked to prepare upwards of 2500 samples each for the patrons. There should be plenty of food. Another option is to do the pre-tasting where you will be able to eat as much as you want for 1 hour prior to everyone else getting in.

  3. no beer?

  4. dieselboi says

    Trust me, there will be beer.

  5. CountryFoodie says

    Ya know, I was dying to try El Gallo Taqueria. Finally drove down one day and to my surprise the guy was very rude and cold! I liked the food but his attitude just sucked. Makes me not wanna go back.
