Workin' for the weekend!

Hey there! Some pics from the AC Food and Wine Festival!! It's been such a lovely week ... Thanks to every one that came out!!! We were sold out at both Sunset Sliders and Sweet and Stylish!!! Here's some flicks ...That's me at the VIP Dinner. Each year they ask me to come out as a surprise guest during a jillion course meal. I always ask to look at the menu before I choose what I'm making so it's not a train wreck on the tongue. This year I made my Quick Apple and Sweet Potato Soup. It's great hot or cold, but that night it was great not even made ... lol. The heat on the burner just wasn't cutting it, so I walked through the steps and then walked through the crowd. Some people watch Food Network Star and they say things like contestants not getting all the equipment or ingredients for a challenge would never happen and I say it happens all the time. It's no biggie if you ask me, the show must go on!! Ok, here's half of the VIP crew ...Then, just like last year, there were these really cool angle-perspective wall drop thingys lol ... click the link and see the ones that were still here this year. This one below was the only new addition, totally had to take the pic!Then, Saturday night after the Sunset Sliders party I headed over to my other shin-dig Sweet and Stylish, take a look at the crowd...
Can you tell this is a really fast post for me? I'm in a rush to head out to the Mets game. I'll tweet a pic @SunnyAnderson. Check out The Neely's on Pat's birthday! This is at their event on Saturday, really good brunch and music!!!
These are the guys in charge of the food for pretty much all the events ...
I have more pics, but I was busy having so much fun at the Sunset Sliders party, that I didn't get many personal ones. If you went and have any pics, comment, I'll get your email and we'll exchange hellos :-). Ok, Thanks again to every one that came out to the entire weekend!! It was so much fun!!!

Don't forget ... ALL NEW Cooking for Real tomorrow!! Season 10 at 10am!! Curry On Baggage!!

Had no idea Atlantic City has it's own food and wine festival too. Los Angeles needs one too! Hopefully you and the Neeleys would come out!

I love that show-must-go-on attitude! It sounds like you made the most of a serious challenge (the malfunctioning burner) and managed to have a blast! I feel like most people would have written a post that's all about how horrible it was to go to an event and be unable to make your big dish, but instead, it's just one minor blip in an otherwise amazing day. Your perspective is so refreshing.

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Sunny, Atlantic City weekend was wonderful. Had a blast at Sunset Sliders, but the Sweet and Stylish was the greatest. You did a swell job and everyone had a blast, especially our birthday boy, Pat Neely and the FNS's too. I do have some pics I could share, you do have my email address on the card I gave you so maybe you could use that then I will have a way to get the pics to you. Not sure how else to do it. Thanks again, it was so nice to see you again and even great to meet my fellow bloggers! Chris from PA

I had a great time all weekend at the Atlantic City Food & Wine Fest. You are a wonderful host...mixing with everyone at Sunset Slider and providing very funny commentary at Sweet & Stylish. Your BBQ Pork Slider was one of my favorite bites of the festival. I posted pictures on my facebook page if you want to take a look. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1714654886045.69988.1828380328&l=6981d93181&type=1
