Silicon Valley BBQ Championships

Never again. Never, ever, with children again.

Too many people, not nearly enough vendors selling food or drink. Of the approx 30 competition teams less than half (closer to 1/3 or 1/4) were selling food. Lines averaged 45 minutes. Prices good. Not enough for the kids. Plenty of bathrooms.

Thank god it wasn't obscenely hot. There was a nice breeze that kept it nice,but still. Not going to that ever again.

We stopped at Mickey D's for ice cream and water afterwards...and then a stop at our favorite BBQ joint for food. Joe and I are hungry.

I drove by that event yesterday (actually entered the parking lot to get something at Walgreen's.

Hm, it's a sad commentary on the offerings if you had to go out to a BBQ joint for food after attending a BBQ championship...

We go to the Naperville Ribfest every year when we are here in Chicago for the 4th, and every year I think the same thing: I would never do this with kids. For all the same reasons. (When we go, Jim and I leave the child with grandma and it is a date night and we stay in a hotel after.) This year we went earlier than we usually do and I almost died from the heat -- no shade! -- and so will make a point to not go that early again, ever.

We wanted to go, but our vacation plans conflicted...
