    Called the phone number on site, no one ever called back. Not very responsive to callers.

      Just had a chance to read your comment.

      Unfortunately Jeff Eats didn’t get to this one.

      The woman “running” the pr—turned down my request for 2 press passes. She offered 1 pass but wanted me to attend the event without Mrs. Jeff Eats.

      To be perfectly honest with you, Jeff Eats appreciates “space limitations”—that said, when an event like this one is held OUTSIDE the space limitations’ argument makes no sense whatsoever.

      To wrap it up for you, sorry, I couldn’t comment on the food, music, etc. because Jeff Eats wasn’t there.

      Thanks for reading…

        Jeff, the woman running pr must be a certified idiot. I was at the event and it was terrific. great food and music. there were so many people there that if mrs. jeff eats had come it wouldn’t have matter one bit. I think that this lady must be a real amateur. the goal of the bands and the food vendors is to get pr by being at the event. other than those attending no one knows anything about their being there. if on the other hand a blog like jeff eats mentions the event and does reviews or comments on bands and food vendors they would get exposure to thousanads of people who weren’t there. by your not doing those reviews this lady has performed a huge disservice to the bands and food vendors.
        by the way in googling this event Jeff Eats pops right up near the top about the event. shows you the following you have.
        boy was that lady stupid.
        oh well.

          vb:

          Just had a chance to read your comments.

          In all honesty I can’t disagree with you. That said, the “lady” made her call and that was that.

          Just a quick comment, Jeff Eats literally receives 3-5 restaurant and charity/entertainment invites per week. Very-rarely are these accepted. Actually, in the 7 years that Jeff Eats has “existed” you probably can count the number of invitations accepted on one hand. When as in this case Jeff Eats requested press passes—it would be safe to assume that I really wanted to attend and pro or con followed up with a “review” about the event.

          Like you said, the vendors there are hoping for “future” business to be generated from their appearance. No question about it, Jeff Eats can’t “review” vendors at an event that he didn’t attend.

          This one is passed.

          Thanks for reading…

            jeff,
            for Mrs. Jeff Eats not to be invited makes no sense whatsoever. you have one of the most influential blogs in all of south florida. this was an outdoor event so there is no question in my mind that there was plenty of room for you folks. based on the vendor list including bands etc. the pr people at this thing did them a terrible horrendous disservice by not having you there. I have followed many of you recommendations and you come up with some top things to do etc. once again super bad move by the pr people.

      • Carly B says...

        Jeff Eats:
        I was one of the food vendors at the event. Terrific crowd and terrific night. What the people who run this event may not appreciate is that my real goal in participating is to get PR for my business. The crowd is large but is very small compared to the readership that you have. Its writers like you that WE NEED at this type of events. Very dumb move by the PR Dept. not to have given you another pass.
