Today Katharine Shilcutt reported on the problems at this weekend's Haute Wheels Food Truck Festival, and the commenters chimed in. Said Eric Wilson:
I was surprised that the $15 entry fee was mainly for drinks, not food. I thought there would be one line or a separate are for samples, which you would use your ticket, then go buy the whole meal at the truck, in a separate line. It could have been a lot better organized. I also agree that the concrete was a bad idea (thank goodness it wasn't 95 and humid this weekend), and I felt sorry for the band, which was totally outside of the circle of trucks.
Ay. Here's hoping things improve next year.
