very nice event. i loved both of Crave's burgers (pork and beef) best. pincho factory and pao town burgers also notable.


what really was absurd -- the beer situation. they had like couple thousand people there, and four (4) -- yes, four (4) -- overworked bartenders to serve beer. bartenders had to pour from bottles into plastic cups. and, this being miami, a lot of people who waited in line 15-20 minutes for a beer had to endure being lectured by the sam adams bartenders about the different varieties being offered.


dumbest, most inconsiderate thing in the world. sam adams needed to just put out kegs and plastic cups, else they shouldn't be a sponsor next year.


just saying




 @HarryP Hi Harry: I was at the event (granted I was there early -- from 6 - 8 p.m.). Though there was a wait for beer, it didn't look like more than four or five people deep. Did it get busier later in the evening?


 @LaineDoss i was there from 7:15 to about 9:30. the crowd peaked at about 8:30. i gave up waiting for beer after 5 minutes in line. i had a VIP ticket, and hit the jack daniels tent, which was 1-3 minute wait.


overall it was still a delightful event, and evening. overall, great job staging. it's just silly crazy that getting a beer should take more than 3 minutes.
