This year, I was on somewhat of a solo mission. P took an out-of-town friend to the festival on an earlier day, so that they wouldn't miss the whole thing. So, I snagged a full sheet at the "sale price" of $50 for 40 tickets, and split it with a friend instead. P joined me, said friend, and couple others when we decided to go, along with his few remaining tickets.
I tried to be a bit more prepared this year, and brought my own water, while trying to spot restaurants that offered a good ticket to food quantity and quality value. By the end of Sunday, I decided to split my excursion over 2 days, so that I didn't have to worry about packing a lunch on Monday. Working downtown sure has its perks!
Here was my haul from this year:
|This was the Spanakopita (Spinach Pie) w/ Tzatziki Dip (3 tickets) from Koutouki It's All Greek To Me. P was looking a little abandoned, and has a strange affinity to spanakopitas, so I took pity on him, threw in one of my tickets, and got one to share. He pointed out that this year's spanakopita was actually better than the one we had a few Taste of Edmontons ago, and he was right! It even changed its shape!|
|To start off my lunch the next day, I opted for something my friends got on Sunday night. Pampa served up a mean Garlic Rumpsteak w/ Chimichurri Sauce on Focaccia (4 tickets). It was a pretty decent helping of meat, and flavours were good too!|
Go out and grab some grub, but don't forget your sunscreen and/or an umbrella!
