a lot of Brunswick stew


the sun rises on a beautiful location, La Belle Amie Vineyard...





sliced through a butt and found a smoke ring


chopping the butt...Crystal loves doing it...don't ask me why...
I think she thinks about men in her life when she's doing it.


making a couple of bucks...




here's the line of people standing in front of my booth to get food
from the concession trailor next to me!!!


here's the girls up front...I kept my ugly ass in the back...






worked my tail off from 4am till 6 pm...grand profit of 250 bucks,
olus some usable inventory left over...

in other words, I got paid in experience...and I learned a lot.
Had a blast.

Cappy,

How many food vendors did they have at the event? What was being served in the trailer?

Well, looks like you had a good time, food looked great! You know how those wine people are !

The guy in the hat is Jamie from Road Kill Grill, a team that competes on the SC circuit....super guy who has tons restaurant/food experience.
His q meat is the best I've ever tasted.

I will do it again...I learned a lot about selling food to the public as opposed to catering. I need to offer something sweet. Food quality
is less important than in catering. Profit margins are. Ease of preparation is essential.

There was some advice I was told (not here) that put me at a disadvantage with the other 2 vendors. I'm not complaining, but
I learned a little something.

Also, they looked a lot better than I did. I looked like an amature.
Those guys had spent the bucks on multiple tables, matching banners
and decorations that I didn't. And I think from the public point of view,
they felt safer with the other 2 guys. I don't feel bad towards any body.
I just think I'm going to have to spend a good bit of money if I want to continue doing this.
