Date Visited: 7/13

Was it crowded:

Not as advertised.

The website touts a $5 "donation" for entrance to the event, with all food and drink samples $1. Brought the whole group down, payed $35 for us all to get in, only to find that there is nothing here for $1, and no one here knows anything about what the website says. :-\

The food was amazing, though. The music was fun. But don't come expecting to have an inexpensive night out.
