ACF National Convention. Anyone going?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Next week I'll be headed to the ACF national convention in Kansas City.  Just wondering if anyone here is planning on going.

I went to a few years ago. All it was were propaganda and products shown by purveyors, little else.

You sure you're not thinking of the NRA show?  ACF has plenty of sponsors too, that's how we keep our organization alive.

I can't justify to myself asking for more time off - already had a week vacation, plus going to the NRA show.

 

Which is annoying, since I live in KC.

Hey since you're from KC what's the best hole in the wall place in KC?

 

Or where do chefs eat on their days off?

<Hangs head in shame>  I eat at Applebee's a lot. To be honest, I have a hard time justifying more than about $25 a person.

 

Lot's of BBQ. My favorite is Famous Dave's.

 

I haven't been, but I've heard good things about the Crossroads art district - http://kccrossroads.org/dining

I uploaded a few photos from the competitions today.  This is Susan Notter's sugar piece.
