Finally got through our pics....
Here's one of Clay's table with the torches going
And one from the front. Check the custom handle
I put my almond stuffed dates on first
Then the Teriaki Ginger marinated water chestnuts and the figs
Next were the MOINKS
And finally the blue cheese stuffed olives
Another testament to the fact that almost anything can be improved by wrapping in in bacon!
Here's Ron L's orange marmalade Sriracha wings and 2 of his blankets in pigs hitting the egg
And Rick working on a non-Mexican pizza dough
In this one, you see the parsley lady and shot fairy discussing box prep technique, while Ron takes a rest and Rick and Clay talk adobo
Finally, our traffic stopping group pic
We had a great time, and can't wait till next year. The rest of this album is at http://s300.photobucket.com/albums/n...wegofest%2009/
On Sunday, we caught the train into town and headed for the Chicago Gourmet event at Millinnium Park. For anyone who likes to eat or drink, I would highly recommend going next year! It's kind of like Taste of Chicago in reverse. You pay 150.00 up front (unless you're lucky and win tickets like we did
) and you get to eat free food and drink all the beer, wine, and spirts you want all day long!
A few pics from that event are here
Had to post this one for Walt and Theresa's entertainment. Fear the formal kilt! This was the Chivas Regal rep
Sadly, Mr. Daniels was not represented, as far as I saw, but we did enjoy a flight of Glenlivit single malt, from the youngest to the 21 year old.
