Proper Preparation for GA Mountain Eggfest

dpittarddpittard Posts: 126
I'll be attending the Georgia Mountain Eggfest this Saturday and picking up my BGE!  Seeing that this is my first Eggfest, I'm curious to know what the Mrs. and I should pack.  I'm assuming lawn chairs to sit in the shade.  Obviously food will be abundant.  What about adult beverages?  Can I bring my own beer or will there be beverages sold on site only?  I've got a good bit of homebrew I'd like to bring!  Maybe @egret can chime in specifically on this little policy issue.

Anything else you Eggfest veterans can't live without at an Eggfest?

    I haven't made it for a couple of years...but when I went it was BYOB for adult beverages.  

    Other than that...just bring plenty of cash because you will want to buy some stuff from the vendors ;)

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Regarding your demo BGE-make sure the used lump is cooled and out of the BGE before the road-trip.  Yes, there have been demo BGE's that self-started on the ride to their new home!

    I don't think there was any alcohol sold at the fest (he snickers) as I can remember. There is beer available in town

    I hate that we are going to miss this one ~ sorry, @egret!   :(

    My advice: pace yourself.  There will be so much incredible food and you don't want to miss any of it.  

    Have a great time... I'll be checking in for updates!

    From Egrets email to the cooks "Also, there will be no beer and wine sales at the Meet & Greet this year, so feel free to bring your own drink of choice to the Meet and Greet and/or to the Eggfest." I brought my own in the last 2 years.
