    Just in case you have forgotten, tomorrow is the opening of the Food and Wine Festival, 2008.

    As sometimes happens, we are having the rare good luck to have Seth and his Da (and yep, the GF) back again and we are all going to the opening weekend. We'll be staying onsite at BWV (the ONLY place available through DVC, but better than nothing, eh?).

    I'll try to take as many photos as I can, but don't know how long I'll be able to hold out. We are still following the meal replacement diet, so there isn't much at the festival that we can have. :(

    We can listen to the music however! Here is the line up of this year's performances. I'm looking forward to Expose and Boyz II Men in particular!

    9/26 - 9/27 - Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy
    9/28 - 9/30 - Sheena Easton
    10/01 - 10/04 - Starship (with Mickey Thomas)
    10/05 - 10/07 - En Vogue
    10/08 - 10/09 - Johnny Lang
    10/10 - 10/12 - Peabo Bryson
    10/13 - 10/14 - Sister Hazel
    10/15 - 10/16 - David Sanborn
    10/17 - 10/18 - John Secada
    10/19 - 10/21 - Spyro Gyra
    10/22 - 10/23 - Otis Day & The Knights
    10/24 - 10/26 - Expose
    10/27 - 10/28 - Kool & The Gang
    10/29 - 10/30 - Boyz II Men
    10/31 - 11/02 - Atlanta Rhythm Section
    11/03 - 11/05 - David Cassidy
    11/06 - 11/07 - Night Ranger
    11/08 - 11/09 - Los Lobos

    Looking forward to your report Tink, we are really going to miss the F&WF and the next time we will be able to go at that time of the year is in the distant future.

    Have a lovely time :p015:

    I like Spyro Gyra too, and I am totally not a jazz person.

    I'll try to make the Festival come alive for you Lisa. :hug2: Can't promise, but I'll do my best!

    Ok! We're off. I'm not bringing the laptop as I really don't think there will be time to log on. We'll be checking in right at 4 if all goes well, settle into the villa, wait for the other contingent to arrive (wander around WS until then) meet with them, get them settled, wander the boardwalk...sleep...and Saturday will be filled with the festival, taking Seth to MK if he wants, having dinner at Cape May, watching the fireworks...sleep, then it's Sunday and time to check out. :sigh;

    Boy, that went fast! :lol:

    See you all later on Sunday or Monday! Take care now!
