Though I would recommend it, I believe that those purchasing it need to have more info on it before purchasing. it is a great way to taste some things but some of the trucks seemed 'put out' to have to do the tastings. one truck offering mac and cheese (though you could see it was not from a box) tasted like it was mass made with a powdered cheese sauce with a handful of real cheese mixed in it. like they did this to please the organizers but did not want to do it.
Very informative and inspiring presentation on 3D printing in the Garden Room of the Montclair Bistro restaurant. The only hitch was that there was only seating set up for about 25% of the people attending this 1-1/2 hour event. I had to call the front desk of the restaurant to find out where they kept the extra chairs. A few of us then set up the chairs ourselves a few minutes before the presentation started. Even then, about a dozen late-comers still wound up standing in the back.
This was really just a lecture about 3D printing, with a question and answer period. I'm not sure why we should have to pay for an extended introduction to the capabilities of the 3D printers.
As for the logistics of the event proper: There was insufficient seating for the crowd and the pitiful array of appetizers was depleted and not restored long before I arrived.
The room was too crowded and hot. The information was for people who had no knowledge whatsoever about 3D printing. You can get the same info on youtube in about 10 minutes and not have to stand for an hour and a half. There were far more people than seats and you couldn't really see the machine in operation until after the presentation. This would be ok for a complete rookie but overselling was the biggest problem. Limiting the class to about 30 people would have made the experience more valuable.

Chicago Bubble Soccer League
The Chicago Bubble Soccer League puts a collision-inducing spin on an internationally popular game. Players compete in games of soccer, following most of the traditional rules, with one major exception: they're encouraged to knock their opponents to the ground. That's because each player is encased in an inflated bubble from the hips up, safeguarding them from injury while fulfilling their dreams of living as a hot air balloon. No goalies prevent shots from flying into the net, as keeping one's balance can be as difficult as confusing a goaltender. The bubble league also features co-ed and male-only formats to ensure players can compete with their friends or make new ones.
The game was first seen on a Norwegian sports show, and has spread to other parts of the world including Italy and the United States. It even made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
