  1. Yay! Glad to have kept you company through part of the journey! I always feel like I should be able to FINISH Taste of Hillcrest but no luck yet! Maybe we’ll have to strategize a little more next year haha! I’m definitely seeing longer lines compared to previous years so it’s only gonna get harder! Dennis is such a trooper when we go to these events! 🙂

      Hi Lynn – out of everyone I think you could possibly finish Taste of Hillcrest one day, haha! If all the places just had their stuff ready to go, it’s be a lot faster, but you can’t control that. It was fun hanging out with you and Faye for part of the journey, hooray!

    I love all our different perspectives of this event! I am so jealous Bread & Cie had the peanut butter bar when you were there. I must say this event was cool because it opened my eyes to restaurants that I never really would have tried otherwise. I think the ziplock trick for the ramen is pretty epic. I think we should try to do that next time just for the shock factor. I think the three of us chicks did quite well as a team that afternoon for this Tasting 🙂

      Yes, it’s nice to see everyone’s perspective on the same event and the differences in our photos! I wish I had just gotten the peanut butter bar. Perhaps I need to bring those ice packs things with me next time, too. Hmmm! Haha… I’ll definitely bring a crappy tote bag if we’re going to put bags of ramen in there! We did do pretty good!

  3. What a daunting task this was, to try everything. I would have called it quits if I got full. Kudos to you and the gals for giving this event a go! Looked like fun! At least there was some good stuff that you tried.

      Hi CC – It’s definitely better having the tupperware so I could “skip” some things. Luckily Lynn managed to convince us to keep going, I would have totally quit otherwise!
