        The Broilers from Louis' Lunch!





        ...and one of Louis' finest. Although this one's appearance was cut short immediately atfer picture was snapped.






        Other notable attendee...






        It was nice to see you there Ellen, although I never found you again after the rains hit and we came out of hiding. It was a shame the event was hampered by such bad weather. The rain also kept me from taking a lot of pictures as I didn't want to ruin my camera.

              I often wonder what happened to the guys from "American Bandstand" ??  Now I see that at least one of them has survived to retirement age !!

                      GGGEEEZZZZZZ at first glance I thought that was Ellen to. Then I looked at the photo closer and I didn't see any Pastrami, Corned beef, or Jewish Rye bread.  I bet this Ellen look a like thinks she put one over on us. You have to get up pretty early in the morning to sneak that one by us.............Good try.........Chef BillyB

                                     P.S. Ellen look-a-like, what food item are you holding in that photo ?????? Is it one of your three basic food groups, Meat, More Meat, and Bread ???????

                              Nothing says sexy like a cute girl with a huge beef rib in her hand.

                                You know it, BILLYBOY!!!  You know the REAL Ellen when you see her !!
                                BTW, I ran into  the NYCfoodguy(.com) , while he was doing his report on Louis Lunch burger...
                                Right away, he asked  me if I ever met YOU, cuz he said he was very excited to "meat you" sometime soon!!
                                Of course, I told him you & I had a few meat ups!!
                                 
                                BillyB : You've got my 3 basic food groups (almost) CORRECT !! It's actually MEAT, Meat, and MORE meat !!
                                You don't know what I went thru to snatch that Brontosaurus  Rib from Fred Flintstone
                                 
                                JOEROGO: You are definitely staying on my good side, with cute compliments like that! tnx!
                                 
                                P.S. To all Roadfooders on this thread ....this has been a very entertaining thread !  I am laughing at many of the comments...
                                and enjoying the pics!!  
                                 
                                PPS. More pics coming ...(this thread may just end up turning Jane & Michael into Rock Stars !!)

                                  I told my kids that Jane and Michael are rock stars for foodies.  They've heard me talk about them for years.  It was so fun meeting everyone and eating, and talking and eating, and waiting for the rain to stop and eating...You get the picture.  I still have some chocolate from Turtle Alley leftover.  Did anyone try the spicy peanut butter cups? Yum!

                                  PS  We're the lurker family in the pictures above.

                                      Hey Guys.....I read that NJ was great but no one was there because of the storm that hit in the afternoon.  Can anyone tell me anything about it?  Did a little rain really keep some diehard foodies away?   This is my 1st Roadfood event and in case you haven't noticed I'm very exited! (With major GI problems I can't go on any of the Roadfood travels or eat fests!   But I do love reading the travels.   I really hope to meet Jane and Michael up close and personal as I already feel I know them!  If you see someone at Foxboro pushing a woman in a wheelchair (mom) and a 10 y.o. either complaining or with lucj having fun (and her 30 y.o. mother) that will be me/us!  Please say hello to me,  A part of me feels like an outsider as IO have not been able to go on any of the wonderful food tours!   Altho I look like I eat all the time!   It will be my mother's 78th birthday and for the last month she spent more time in the hospital....not my cooking, I'm pretty good.  So please say hello to us!  It will/should especially make it even more fun for the 10 y.o who I am trying to turn in to a foodie.  She is nuts about Paula and wants Duff to bake her a cake!   See you on the 26th!!!

                                        Hi Jody,
                                        FIRST OFF,  is the fact that once you meet JANE & MICHAEL , you will NEVER ever again feel like an OUTSIDER!!
                                        Cuz, they are both such warm hearted people, the kind that will leave you feeling warm & fuzzy...
                                        (and believe it or not, I don't even get paid for saying that, lol )
                                         
                                        Ok, here's my own personal MEADOWLANDS Food Fest review....
                                        The first THREE hours I was there, it was actually RAIN FREE, (from 12 noon opening, till 3 pm).... It was  HOT & SUNNY,
                                        with moderate crowds; not crazy busy, though, and usually just a few people on the food lines at any given time...
                                         
                                        A little rain did not keep THIS diehard foodie away, anyway   .... but it looked like it kept some of the others away..
                                        But, I think, more than anything, it was the $$ pricing structure of minimum $40 in advance (+$15 ticketmaster fees),
                                        or $50 at the door.....
                                        When I ordered my tickets online, the Food Fest said they were limiting sales to 25,000 people...
                                        sounded like potential huge crowds for only about 20 vendors, IMO
                                         
                                        This LINK from an "Eater" staff member gives good reasonings  on why there was a "shockingly low turnout"..
                                        http://eater.com/archives/2010/06/14/a-report-from-the-great-american-food-and-music-festival.php
                                        ( "were  the crowds at the Big Apple BBQ Fest in NYC?"...
                                        and reviewer also felt the fest would be better at a true FAIRGROUND...(my sentiments exactly)
                                        (instead of being held on the asphalt sidewalks outside the concourse...)...
                                         
                                        The food itself was'nt too crazily priced (brisket/sausage combo was $12, fried chicken platter $12, etc) 

                                        BUT, the $4.75 for a regular sized bottled water was typical stadium price GOUGING...
                                        (I paid $6.00 a few times for a large fountain soda from the inside concourse....)
                                        Perhaps, many of the potential Food Fest guests had previous experiences with large venues like the Meadowlands and chose to avoid it?!?
                                         
                                        I know I was leery after reading many negative reviews (on seriouseats.com, etc) regarding the first Great American Food Fest last June in the San Francisco area...(3 hour waits for Anchor Bar wings, and/or Katz's Pastrami, and that's even if you were lucky enough to find they had food left when you got to the front... 
                                         
                                        While I enjoyed some of the food items I had , (espescially the brisket and the chicago style hot dog)...
                                        the ANCHOR BAR chicken wings/Buffalo, NY  were way too SOGGY for my tastes..
                                        I find that some items , like wings, don't do as well when they are mass produced!
                                        (much better when I had them in Buffalo, cuz they were piping HOT, and I could order them extra crispy...
                                         
                                        The WORST part for me was the unexpected 25 BUCKS to PARK !!! ( I figured $10 or $15, but this was too ridiculous)
                                        One lady I chatted with was really pissed, cuz her family came in 2 cars, so they were out 50 bucks.. 
                                        You will have it better at your BOSTON area Food Fest, as parking is supposed to be INCLUDED !
                                         
                                        I hope this helps you a bit, JODY !!! (more pics coming!)
                                        I've also posted some on my "Foodography!" group on Facebook.

                                          looks like Ellen is doing her Fred Flintstone impersonation with that big beef rib in her hand.

                                                    My buffalo wings from the ANCHOR BAR were soggy !!!
                                                    They were much better when I had them in Buffalo ...

                                                    This was the mass produced version of those wings...
                                                    (in Buffalo, I got to say "well done, extra crispy", plus they were served piping hot...)

                                                      Wow!  Those wings look awful.  Hey Ellen, I think Anchor Bar should be ashamed of themselves for putting out a product like that.

                                                      Enjoying your pics, thanks for the report.

                                                      Any good photos of Tony?(by good I mean funny)

                                                          Ellen, thanks for the pictures, Its nice to see pictures of the Roadfood people. I was beginning to think your camera only had a David Sax setting. I would have loved to be at a gathering like this, but its a 3000 mile hike................Thanks again....BillyB
