This past week I went to a fun filled convention. It was a Clown Convention, and we always have a wonderful time. The banquet./event manager had just started the first day of the convention.Our first planned meal was a Thursday. I was sitting at .Table 1 and by the time Table 2 had reached the banquet style table there was no more salad, and everyone was waiting on the meat dish. The staff and manager apoligized for the trouble and said they would do better on Friday, and Saturday. The same type situation happened. People waiting for food, cannolis that had been frozen and filled into wet crust. The third night which was the night we received awards and had a show planned was the same. This time we were being served, and some of us that had fish had to wait about 20 minutes for our entree.
We know how to have fun so we were disappointed, but clowns can always laugh off anything.The reason I am writing this is because I do not want anyone else to go through such
a problem. If you are considering having a wedding or some other memorable affair...BE VERY CAREFUL where you book your event. Maybe next year they will get out some of the kinks I saw. If your event is a one time affair consider somewhere else .
