Uptown Waterloo eateries put out their best in the public square and Waterloo responded with gusto. This is as close as I was able to come to any of the actual food at the Solstice Sampling. With a 7pm start, showing up at 8pm left me and about 150 others wistfully looking into the promised land from a long queue. Shortly after, we were gently and very politely (Canadian!) waved off as the vendors had mostly sold out, so a bad-news-good-news story. Didn’t get in: bad. Waterloo shows up en masse to hang out and do something in the public square: good.
Click through for a few more pics. Hey, BIA, these photos are for sale, or will consider interesting trades for… food. Not kidding.
Nice to see a lot of people on King St north of Union. And on the same night as Steel Rails, no less.
Small people instinctively know when you’re photographing them.
There appeared to be queues inside the event space…
and around the corner.
Given the popularity of this gig, I reckon similar events are on the horizon.
High five for uptown eats.
