Queues ain’t good

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THIRTY-FIVE min­utes queu­ing, just to get in, 45 min­utes for a bot­tle of cheap cham­pagne at $50, giv­ing up my spot in the food queue so that I could watch the last song of Black Sor­rows - it just ain’t good enough.

The food and wine fes­ti­val is sup­posed to show off the di­ver­sity this amaz­ing shire has to of­fer.

The rent and com­mis­sion that is ex­pected to have on a stall is damn right shame­ful.

Two thou­sand am­bas­sadors from here and there are now left con­fused on how could you show­case such fab­u­lous mu­sic, at­mos­phere and lo­ca­tion with just a hand­ful of food and drink stalls that were so over­priced and cer­tainly not able to han­dle such vast amount of crowds. Greed, that’s all it is. All food and al­co­hol premises in the shire should be able to have a go for free and 10 per cent of what they make should be the com­mis­sion which means the lit­tle café down the road can make as much profit as the big guns.

What about all of us that danced all night and be­lieve me it was packed - no water.

Come on - surely you could have had free chlo­ri­nated tap water.

Also guess where at 11pm 2000 hun­gry and thirsty par­ty­go­ers go? We didn’t know ei­ther. Maybe there could be hot dog stalls etc to think about for next year.

On a brighter note we rocked.
