Yeah, we made the journey after seeing it on tv several years, with the media always showing folks stuffing their chubby little faces with great BBQ as they wandered from place to place in the area. It was a surprise to find a $6 entry fee and no food other than the vendors who all trucked their meat in from outside sources. We got a good reaction to our question in another thread, about how to break thru to the eating side of the program…but won’t have time to glad-hand our way in this year.
Beale St was great! We BBQ and Blues hopped from place to place all evening and had a great time.
I’ll stick to the smaller, more accomodating festivals where a roadie is as welcome as the ‘Pro-Team’ member anywhere on the site. There sure are enough of them to keep one busy all summer.
