Guys and gals:

 

I've got a few community outreach projects in the works for the OVMS, but to get the best results from our efforts, we need some help from you.  Specifically, could you please post with your answers to these two questions:

 

When you attend the Show-of-Shows

1) Which hotel(s) do you prefer?

2) Where do you like to go eat?

    Yes, I know. I was basically stating that those old shows were much more fun. While the SOS format certainly brings the people in, there was just something about those Drawbridge shows that was a lot of fun, and with great militaria as well.  Scott

Took a friend to the KY Pork Producer's establishment in the lobby last year, for the purpose of buying lunch after a nice large transaction.  The gentleman behind the counter asked "so, what will you have?"  My friend said "I'll have the pork sandwich."  The fellow smiled really big, nodded toward the menu, and said "mister, you're gonna need to be a LOT more specific."  (They sell pretty much every delicious pig part including the squeal.)

Yep...  you are right.  You have got to have the pork tenderloin sandwich at the KY Pork Producers booth just outside the entrance.  This is the best deal at the show!
