Something cooking in Waterloo

Friday in Waterloo 063

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.
