Where Should the Next Roadfood Tour Go Tue, 09/28/10 7:55 AM (permalink)
As I have been following the voting scorecard for the next trip, it would be interesting to elimate the bottom tier of locations and re-run the poll for another week.  It might be interesting to see what develops as the flavor choices are reduced.  KC, Pitt, LA and Philly would depart as they are under 10%.  The others are really closely bunched together. 
 
While there is no way to gauge, are folks voting for their most want to visit area, a previous great area to visit, their hometown area, etc.  Perhpas folks will offer comments here on their selections. 
 
I choose Portland and the South Maine Coast as I have never been there, enjoy the foods represented on trips to this area by others and have enjoyed these trip reports the most!

    I would choose Portland/South Maine Coast, or Connecticut or Philly, because those will likely be the only places I could feasibly travel to next year.

      I chose Connecticut Pizza and Hot Dogs. I would also like to see the poll rerun with the top choices.

        Why wouldn't East TN qualify?  We have a lot of mountain food available as well as outstanding entertainment in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

        In addition, we have Benton's Hams that is world famous.

        The airport in Knoxville is very modern and has direct flights from many cities including NYC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Atlanta and many others.
         
        The scenery, food, quality of East TN would certainly entice many folks around the USA.  The Tennessee Valley is one of the most scenic places in the USA in the world due to its lakes, mountains, food and other neat places.

          Pretty cool Stephen...that happened mighty fast! 
           
          I choose CT as I have not done any stops in that area and would love to learn more about it!

                  OT, but East TN is on my short list along with Kentucky for a retirement location.

                    I've never seen voting on any poll this close...really a statistical tie.  I'd love to hear more of thinking in the voting...

                      I voted for Charleston and the South Carolina coast, since I love the availability of great seafood and Southern/soul/Low County food in the area.  But, it is probably just an excuse to go eat the chocolate pudding at Hominy Grill again.

                          I don't care where the next Tour goes. I just need the dates and destination to be announced further in advance, please. I had to miss NM because my September was already fully booked.

                                Joe, where were you last February when the Glee Club was in Charleston for the weekend?  You certainly don't need a reason to visit SC, just transportation.  We've taken the guesswork out of every restaurant for you!    Chris

                                    Ahh, the thorn in our side, Suzy!  Plus this year's NM tour was on a Friday/Saturday, which lowered the attendance even further.  Hopefully the dates will be announced way in advance AND it'll be on a Saturday/Sunday.  We missed you in NM, but I know we'll see you in December!    Chris

                                                        from a selfish point of view I would like the Chicago trip, because I could definitely go
                                                        And maybe we could try not to schedule it on any major religious holidays this time...
