How was your experience?
Wasted my money! I was excited about this event & being able to hang out with my girlfriend & have some fun. This would have been my first time attending this event. The venue was horrible. Why they decided to do such a huge event at the California Market Center (Penthouse) in Downtown LA I don't know. There was a ridiculously long line in the lobby which my friend & I stood in for an hour and all we got was half way to the elevator that was to take you up to the Penthouse (only 10 people at a time). By this time we were able to catch people who were leaving and informed us that there was ANOTHER line once you finally got up to the Penthouse to get into the event. Plus, the wonderful goodie bags that have been previously raved about consisted of some flyers, brochures, a small carton of coconut water and sample packets of Sweet & Low that you'd get from a restaurant. Everyone I asked who was leaving as they passed by said it wasn't worth standing in the line to get in and though the space was big upstairs it wasn't all being used and there weren't many vendors. It was a waste! Needless to say, we chose not to stay and wait who knows how much longer before we'd finally get in so we left. We would have had at least another hour before finally getting in. So disappointed and mad that I wasted money for something not even used.
