Folks from LAist blog VERY UNHAPPY with Autry BBQ Event

First of all, a word of warning...the post linked below contains some adult language.

With that out of the way, it seems the folks over at LAist, one of our foremost blogs here in Los Angeles, was very unhappy (to say the least) with the Autry BBQ event I highlighted earlier this month. I didn't get a chance to attend myself and, from the sound of it, that probably wasn't a bad thing.

I have been to Autry events in the past and they have usually been well-run, but it seems that some policy got in the way this time around. My guess that the "approved vendors" mentioned in the post wanted to make sure their sales wouldn't be impacted by the attendees. If so, this is rather a silly idea.

I would love to hear from others who attended to see if this post catches the general feeling or if they were just having a bad day. Comments on the LAist post seem to indicate that there was several disappointed people, though.

I highlight events here in My Word that I might like to attend, even though I would never be able to get to all of them. Sorry to hear that this one appeared to be a wash-out.

Bar-B-Screwed: Autry Hosts World's Worst BBQ Festival

Either the folks at the Autry are the world's stupidest event planners, or they are the world's most deceptive ones. BBQ'n at the Autry is the first and only barbecue festival I've ever been to, where attendees weren't allowed to sample barbecue from the vendors in the competition.
