Why You Should Never, Ever Go to a Food Festival

I tend to agree, they just had an oyster festival a couple of blocks from my house. We went Friday night and it wasn't bad, we were able to walk around and there really wasn't any lines. Didn't go out Saturday but walked over Sunday and tere were two lines of people waiting to get in and pay the entry fee, which wasn't charged on Friday.
People said they had been waiting 20 minutes to get in and I could see how crowded it was inside.

We opted to walk up to the boardwalk and get food there without waiting in line.

Jazz Fest in NOLA is just as much about the food and the lines there can be unbearable as well

Coming down 8/27

You have a point about you bring there for a few hours, but most sporting events aren't about the actual game anymore, it's more of showing face at the venue and the corporate presence.
Hockey made reference to the Trenton Sound baseball games, I think baseball stadium food is much better then football, although I have been to far more baseball stadiums than football. Lots more games so the draw has to be there

Football to me has always meant tailgating at LSU games so I have no need for food inside the stadium, but Saints games never had much of a tailgating presence and most of my games were viewed as a child at Tulane Stadium

Are people in NJ as Kale crazy as the ones in NY

I've seen it in the stores I shop at for the last few years. I started eating kale about 10 years ago so I look for it. It is usually with the other loose greens

Craft Cocktails in NO?

While I wasn't drinking at the time of the bad batch as I wasn't 10 yet, I do recall Dixie putting six packs on everyone's porch in the neighborhood. My dad sent me on a mission to take the six pack from all the neighbors that he knew didn't drink.

Best of Monmouth County: Readers' Choice Awards 2014

I had seen that list a while ago, maybe not on here but some of the places on the list surprise me but that makes sense as it is a readers choice and voting could be suspect

Filipino food in New Orleans

Look two posts above yours for the address and phone number.
As the post is almost 6 years old I called the phone number and it is no longer in service so they may not be open any longer

Old Man Rafferty's in AP to close

The only reason I know is we went last year for the free BBQ and the waitress said so.
The folks that are opening the Biergarten are involved

Chik-Fil-A free food today if you dress up as a cow 7/11/14

I'm well aware of the ad campaign. Looks like cow appreciation day started around 2004 almost a decade after the eat mor chicken campaign started in 1995. My comment was meant as a joke

So don't go. I heard all the certain locations were packed so I'm pretty sure that was across the board. Since I didn't open the link, is today some actual cow appreciation day or was this made up between CFA and the costume industry to get sales and rentals up of cow costumes?

WashPost declares end of gluten-free fad

We'll at least with it being a fad it has made it much easier for me to find things that are GF without having to read the labels. So from someone with celiac, thank you for making it a fad

Rare Bourbon

It will be over 60 bucks wherever you go. A local store had a few bottles and they didn't last long at 750 bucks apiece

Quaker Steak and Lube - Edison

And it's a chain that strives to do just that. It started as an homage to old gas stations

Restaurant for a birthday near Asbury Park

Watermark charges a cover that they donate for the folks that watch the bands at the pony, so it's not technically free

Trader Joe's Corn spaghetti or brown rice pasta

The gluten free pasta does not hold up well as a leftover. I have been eating the Barilla gluten free and find it to be the best I've had and I've tried a lot

Grits with a few over easy eggs on top all smashed together is a great breakfast. Until the whole shrimp and grits for dinner explosion I only knew grits for breakfast

Best bars for dinner

I've only had the wings at Kim Marie's in Asbury but they were good. Dark bar so could be worth your visit. Not as divey as Bond Street but I love Bond Street because it is divey
