I mentioned this back in August. The Missus and I decided to go early, like five minutes after things were scheduled and the place was already packed. We parked on the street; the combination of Zion shoppers and folks checking this out made for a chaotic parking situation. The folks who put this on managed to keep a small footprint.
The area with peace and quiet was the Beer Garden. Perhaps it was too early, but it also seemed that 50% of the folks here weren't legal drinking age and the crowd was overwhelmingly Asian. I probably would have settled in here if we stuck around.
There was a decent variety of food booths, though only one really interested me. It also seemed that just about everyone else was interested in this one as well.....the grilled cuttlefish on a stick looked quite appealing....though the super long line did not.
This was at 5:15 mind you....just imagine later on?
It was nice to see some familiar faces......
Here are some of the other food booths.
Other than Pangaea, nothing I was particularly interested in.
The size of the crowd this early on in the evening shows that San Diego can really get behind this concept.
I hope they do well.
It runs tonight from 5pm - 11pm. It's about 8 right now, so you still have time to get on down there and check it out yourself.
