My daughter and I went to the event on Sunday from 11 -3 and we were disappointed that the door didn’t even open up until well after 11 am. We waited 45 minutes to get in despite purchasing our tickets well in advance. I found the event disorganized, with long lines, small samples. Some vendors were a no show. The wine tasting area didn’t flow well. We thought that the main event at 1pm, Bethany Frankel would make up for it but we were disappointed, even though we are both big fans. We love you Bethany, but come on, you were a ½ late, and showed us how to make a smoothie, scrambeled eggs and French toast? She didn’t seem engaged with the audience. I would have been pissed off if I paid extra and upgraded to the first 2 rows for the food sampling! By then it was after 2:15 and we only had 45 minutes left and vendors were either out of food and packed up or the lines were too long. We were starving so we left and went to King of Prussia and had a nice late lunch at Maggiano’s.
