Free Raffle: Win $2400 tickets to the Great American Food and Music Fest!

I am not sure whether we are cheerleaders, curators or just good friends of the Great American Food and Music Fest, but I do know that the Festival is a good friend of Roadfood. How do I know this? The organizers have provided us with two All-Access Tickets to give away to either the Meadowlands event in New Jersey (June 13) or the Gillette Stadium event at Foxborough (June 26). The value of these tickets? $2400.00. Yes, $1200 each for the ultimate experience, which includes: a reserved seat for musical performances, invitation to an exclusive backstage meet-n-greet party with celebrity chefs and performers (Guests will have their own Green Room for the entire event)... plus Food and Beverage from any and all purveyors served backstage, admission to the Grand Tasting areas for beer and wine sampling, and VIP parking. For details and a roster of musical performers and participating Roadfood restaurants, visit www.greatamericanfoodandmusicfest.com.
 
We will pick the winner of these two tickets at random from all posts in this thread (one post per person, please!) on June 7th.
 
And PS: The wonderful Willie Mae's Scotch House of New Orleans has just been added to the list of vendors.

    Put me down.  If it's for free, it's for me!

    EDIT: Me and The BadMan!  That's if Greymo isn't available of course.

    Holy Toledo, Michael!!  It would be fantastic to attend something like this at the Meadowlands as I'm just a stone's throw away in Lower Manhattan.  I would gladly be ready with camera and notebook in hand to cover this epic event.  I just looked at the list of restaurants and my eyes welled up with happy tears.  Oh, could such joy be mine??

    That would be worth flying up to NY!  Please add me to the raffle. 

    I promise not to rub Tony's nose in it when I win, if that helps.

    YES!!!  That All Access Pass is something to die (dine) for!!  The lineup is awesome, and boy, what a great day it will be.  Count me in, in, in for the Meadowlands.  It would be great to meet you, Jane and Stephen!

    Boy, I have to get out more.  I can't believe that I've been a Roadfood insider for over three years, and I'm still just a junior burger!!  I guess I've spent too much time lurking!

    I'm already trying to figure out how to fit this into our schedules; winning the tickets would certainly make it easier for us to decide.

    Michael,
    I have been following your work for years. I grew up in the same town that you did. I normally agree with most of your opinions.However, I must disagree with your support and affiliation with this event. This event is a total Ripoff!! In this economy, to charge a cover charge which gets you nothing but within 1000 feet or more (binocular range) of these 'seminars." I don't think any of us need to see any of the bad Food Network Cooks who for the most part know nothing of food. Food network stopped being taken seriously about 7 years ago when all the real chefs left or were fired.

    Look at the lineup. Not enough restaurants (lines will be horrendous,parking will likely be charged, no serious regional cooks leading seminars,and food charges are extra. I don't mind paying for the food but 40 bucks for what? I wonder who the charlatans are who will be making a tidy profit from this event?

    If managed properly and by ethical folks, something like this could be fun. This event is exactly the opposite of the spirit of Roadfood.

    Stay Away all.

    I think your odds would be better if you promised to rub Tony's nose in it when you win.
