|Piles of Plan Check's fried chicken|
The event's venue change left little to be desired - it was moved from Culver City's charming, grassy, shady Media Park to a blacktop parking lot at The Lot - but the restaurants, chefs, bartenders (slushees and punch bowls!) and beer folk really upped their game. There was a lot of deliciousness happening at every turn, and too many favorite bites to list here. But we can't stop thinking about the fried chicken, so here's a slideshow of some of the best we tried. Is fried chicken the new pork belly for food events? Nothing wrong with that.
