I've gone to this several times and I've had a blast. The food is good, there's plenty of it, and their drink prices are all good. Plus, it's a chance to help support [url="https://www.operationhomefront.net/donationform.aspx?id=15425"]Operation Homefront[/url], the organization that will be benefitted by the proceeds of this great event. Those of you who live in or who will be in the area on Sunday, come on over and check it out.
