Open Call: How Was This Year’s Austin Food & Wine Festival?

Last year after the adrenaline rush, folks had plenty to say about the Austin Food & Wine Festival, and some of it wasn’t so positive. Eater Austin asked if it was “kind of a shit show," and the consensus was that the tickets were steep and the perks few (at least for the plebians without VIP passes). Also noted was the lack of local talent in lieu of national celebrities.

C3, which puts on the festival, promised to do better, changing the lineup and the ticket prices as well as the location (this year, as you know, it was in Butler Park, to avoid dusty Auditorium Shores).

So how did the festival do? Did you have a good time? What did you enjoy, and what could you have done without? Tell us in the comments below.
