Eggtoberfest Stone Mountain, GA

Hey All,
I am going to my first Eggtoberfest in Stonemountain, GA and wanted any tips from folks who have gone before.  I am going to learn some stuff and of course get some good eating.  I may take the family or maybe my buddy but either way I will be there.  So please any helpful tips for a newbie will be greatly appreciated!!

    Make sure you have tickets in hand, there is not a walk up window for the fest like Disney World.

    I'm not going to get there until 11:45am / 12:00pm due to an early AM commitment, will there still be food left?  (First Eggfest obviously :-) )

  • @blue--they don't officially shut down eggs until 3 pm.  While things might slow down a little after 2:00 or so, most cooks are preparing and putting out food on a regular basis, so hopefully you will be fine.
  • @blueinatl -- Yes, there will be plenty of food, so like @vidalia1 said. . . come hungry!  See you there! 

    Just a warning:  they are addictive! :D

  • @charles--never heard that question before.  But, with 150 smoking eggs, you should have some existing natural camo if you do light up a cigar, right?
  • thats what I was thinking I would think as long as my egg is closed their should be no problem you food contamanation

    If you go into a restaurant and see the chef smoking cigarettes or cigars what would you think??? I for one would think no food safety & leave....
  • Had not thought about the food safety aspect--V1 makes a good point.  Maybe better to not light up while preparing food. 

  • JRWhiteeJRWhitee Posts: 3,026
    I should have been more clear, not while we were cooking.
