Fashionably late...

The next day brought a downpour of epic proportions, and even the Wonder Dog hesitated before venturing out. As a result, I was more than a little late arriving at Foodstock (www.wjffradio.org), the annual celebration of wine and good eats presented by radio station WJFF to showcase scores of vendors; it is a perennial favorite amongst local connoisseurs. The parking lot was still full when I arrived (www.villaroma.com) and I literally raced in the doors, camera in hand, prepared to absorb as much as possible in the little time I had left. Waving, shouting and running, I snapped some photos, while stopping (gasping for breath) to ask WJFF’s acting station manager Adam Weinreich about the day and how it all transpired. “It’s been a huge success,” Weinreich said with great enthusiasm. “We had 400 guests and a slew of station volunteers, and more than 50 vendors sold $13,000 worth of local products. The event has been a huge boost for WJFF’s spirits and finances.” I shook some hands, paused for folks to take snapshots of the dog and perused the booths before heading out again, late for a date with a band named “Rico Suave’s Chimps in Tuxedos” at the Dancing Cat Saloon (www.dancingcatsaloon.com) in Bethel.
