New England Eggfests?

I've been seeing posts going up the last week or so about Eggfests in other parts of the country. I was wondering if there are any Eggfests worth going to in New England and if so, where and when? TIA.

    @Griffin-Niagara Falls is about 330 miles west of the line of demarcation for New England.  I realize everything is bigger in Texas and 300+ miles is a morning commute so maybe some hearty New Englanders will make the trek :)>-

    300 miles? Is that all? That's nothing. We drive that to get to the ranch. (I kid, I wish we were closer)

    Not to mention 100 miles= 1.799 stops @ Dunkin Donuts for coffee, stretching, and bathroom duties.

    Not to mention 100 miles often gets you in to a completely different state. In my case it is often the State of Confusion. I live five minutes from New Hampshire, 45 minutes from Vermont and about an hour each from Maine, Connecticut & Rhode Island. I'm guessing there are probably ranches in Texas bigger than some of the New England states.

    But seriously I probably won't make the one in upstate New York, That is an 8 Hour drive for me. I sometimes would drive through Niagara on my way out to Detroit. Although I do plan on trying to go to this years Eggtoberfest in Atlanta, I am thinking I'll confine any other Eggfests to the New England area. Hence my original question.

    Sadly it isn't just Capital One. BofA shut down my credit card just as I was charging a room up in a bed-and-breakfast in Maine. I taken out money near my house in Massachusetts in the morning, charged something in New Hampshire on the way up to Maine and when I went to charge my room they shut my credit card down. I hate them with a fiery passion.

    @hornhonk Have you gone to that one? Who puts it on and how big is it? Sorry for the questions, but I hadn't heard that name before. I went to their website, but there wasn't a lot of info other than some pictures. It did look like Dr. BBQ put in an appearance one year. TIA

    Shockingly, all of our issues are with national chains. I never remember having theses problems before my local chain was bought out.  :-<

    as much as i hate citibank, the easiest refinance i ever did was with them last month, 1 telephone call, locked rate, no aprasals, no paperwork swapped, no questions, no costs, and everything got done within a few weeks. girl from boston drove up and everything was signed in 5 minutes, done. lowest rate i could find and everyone said dont do it
