We’re having a competition bbq cookoff this weekend in a neighboring town. They say they will have 30-50 competitors. They say there will be vendors and entertainment there but by reading very carefully I see no mention of being able to sample or purchase any of the competition entered food. So why would I want to go to watch others cook food that I couldn’t sample?
Seriously a few years ago this is exactly what happened. Big event, decent music but no competitor food available. Only food available was from vendors where the only criteria was you were able to pay the fee.
