Foodie Con is an event supposedly made for foodies. I thought I would step into heaven when I arrived, but it was somewhere in between Earth and Hell. It wasn't anything I expected and it lacked the food component that I was hoping for. 

At $40 for a VIP ticket (luckily I was comp'd), I was anticipating a plethora of food samples, food dishes, and everything else in between. What we actually experienced was a Farmer's Market where you have to pay to get in. There were more vendors trying to sell or market their merchandise than actual food tastings and restaurants promoting their food. Additionally, VIP didn't get you much other than a secret room with a big blow up swan and unicorn and extra seating for picture taking. Below are some pics of the event...

The only thing that was really free...ramen to take home

Overall, I would say that Foodie Con is a pass. There needs to be vast improvement in terms of less vendors and more restaurants/food promotion. It is called Foodie con and as the name implies, I expect more food for foodies. The beer area with beer tastings were probably the best part from the whole event, offering glasses of beer to taste. There was a silent disco was interesting, but not amazing. The only good thing was getting free ramen cups.
