Eggfest NE question

Ok, I know this seems like a silly question but I am a newbie....  Is Eggfest NE worth attending.  Just recently got an egg and don't yet have all the toys.  I am very comfortable with cooking on it and the techniques.  I know the food will be great and might get ideas but not sure that's enough to convince the wife to join me (and justify the price).

 

Any feedback is appreciated - Please don't kill me on this one :-)

    Yes the NewEggland fest is a good fest to attend. It is well attended and has some great cooks. This will be our 3rd year attending and we look forward to it.

    It's a legit question.  Going out and sampling food from strangers isn't everybody's idea of a good time.  With that being said, I'd encourage you to jump in with both feet and sign up to cook.  You already own an egg.  That puts you well above the fast majority of the folks who will be there to taste.  Recognize that any pressure to produce great food in large volumes is largely self-induced.  Just plan to cook something that is in your comfort zone and serve it to people - and don't plan to cook all the time (trust me on this one).  Or just encourage your wife to try it once.  Some people really enjoy it and want to go to any Eggfest they can.  For others, I can see how once might be enough.  It's really just a matter of how you and your wife enjoy spending a day.
