I am at the LAFWF at LA Live. Is it me or was I expecting too much? I was expecting something like the Taste Of Chicago or the Bite Of Seattle. It's in the middle of LA Live with a 7 foot walled fence around the perimeter of the event. It cost $75 to get in. Plus there's a dumb VIP entrance for all of the cool people. With so many great restaurants and food establishments in LA you would think there would be a nice big food festival for everyone to come and enjoy!

I've never heard of a food and wine festival that was free, and since this is L.A., Land of the VIP , I'm not surprised at the special entrance. If you end up going, I hope you have fun!

The other cities don't have the VIP entrance because they don't have any VIPs.

The tip off that it was going to be a bit more hoity-toity than the other food fairs mentioned is the "& Wine" part.

I was there last year and luckily I got free tickets.

I was disappointed too, I wouldn't have paid a dime for that.

All these festivals seem second-rate after I had such a blast at the Catalina Wine Mixer.

$75 dollars just so you can stand inside a picketed fence and watch all the "special people" cut you in line? No offense, but that sounds pretty lame.
