Portland Spa, Pool and BBQ Show = Waste of time

by zydecopaws on January 25, 2009

Today we attended the Portland Spa, Pool and BBQ Show at the Expo Center.  For all of about 5 minutes.  Someone needs to inform the sponsors of this show that outdoor patio kitchens with stainless steel gas grills don’t equal BBQ.  Granted, we went with low expectations, but even those were too high.

I guess I should have been tipped off by the fact that this was January, there was fresh snow on the ground, and by the almost complete lack of information available online for this event that it would turn out to be a complete waste of my time.  To add insult to injury, it not only cost us the time to drive all the way to the Expo Center and back, but in spite of the claim it would be free, the Expo Center charges $7.00 for parking.  

Guess we won’t be going there again…
