The big negative is the choice of venue. A parking lot! Some of the food vendors were good, if you could stand waiting in line. The wine was not top of the line. For the price, choose a local place showcased and have a nice dinner on your own. Not impressed.

I will not attend next year. My 2 complaints about this event were the fact that you had to stand in a single file line to get wine and food. The line snaked around the event to every table. You were not allowed to go to whatever table you wanted...continued
