Yum Yum Fest

    I was lucky enough to have Sunday off to attend the first Yum Yum Fest. 25 area restaurants featuring 30 chefs made tasty food to eat. There was also tasty cocktails and beer concocted by local bartenders. Each food item was a ticket, which was $5 and beverages ranged from 1 or 2 tickets. The music lineup was Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, Orgone, Lizzo,  Four Fists featuring P.O.S. and Astronautalis. Lizzo was my favorite with Batches and Cookies.  The weather was perfect, the crowd never got too over whelming, and non of the food/drinks disappointed. The ticket even sold out within 2 hour in, so would recommend getting them in advance next year. Proceeds from this event benefit the Madison Parks Foundation
