Zestfest, 2011. Irving, Texas.

I'm not sure why they moved Zestfest to the Irving Convention Center. No offense, but Irving...Zestfest? Something wrong with that.

Anyway, here are a few reminders from my last year's visit and some general information. It is a great show for taste testing and for buying.

  1. There is a $10 entrance fee but you can come and go all day.
  2. It can get crowded, if you want more space, ask when the "down" times are.
  3. There are drinks to purchase, including Coors beer, but no food except 1 concession stand serving hotdogs and such. Of course, there are hundreds of sauces, salsas, and relishes to try with plenty of tortilla chips.
  4. Try the super hot peanuts. Wow.

Fran - they probably moved it cuz of the conflict in FW with the SB and Stock Show. Either no hotels, no exhibit space, too expensive or some combination thereof.

John -- yea, probably right. I doubt there are many rooms available downtown this weekend. Thanks.
