Being the opportunist that I am, my goal was to eat my way around the entire event, and if there is one thing that I don’t do, it’s give up without a fight.

There will not be as many photos in this review as I would have liked since I was there shooting a video (which you can see after the jump), but here is the rundown of some of what I ate (keyword is some as there will be a few supplemental reviews of items that I brought home). Continue reading →
