Corporate Clueless Provides Souless Art "Festival"

The so-called "Santa Barbara Festival of Art". Let's just call it the "Lincoln SUV show"
Be sure to stop by Lincoln's SAVOR THE DREAM experience where top local chefs chosen by Bon Appetit and Gourmet magazines will be on hand to give demonstrations, provide samples and distribute recipes of signature dishes. While there, get a taste of Lincoln by test-driving the new 2007 Lincoln Navigator, the all-new 2007 Lincoln MKX and the new 2007 Lincoln MKZ.
"LOCAL CHEFS"? Local? Let's see...we're in Santa Barbara. The Chefs are from Los Angeles. Get a freaking clue.
Festive cuisine: The Festival's outdoor cafés will offer a wide range of excellent foods from around the world. Beer, wine and sodas and other beverages will be available along the stroll to quench the thirst of festival attendees. In support of festival cafés, no coolers please.
What outdoor cafes? There was about a smattering of a few food booths. 1 Coffee. 1 Roasted Corn. 1 Guacamole. 1 All-around "catering". 1 Kinda wine eventy thing. And you had to buy "tickets" instead of actually walking up and paying for the so-called food.

And, ART? The same sort of stuff I saw at the much more exciting Harbor Festival yesterday. Jewelry. Jewelry. Jewelry. Carved wood baskets. Jewelry. And lots of shiny gas guzzling Lincoln SUVs. Lots of bimbo's walking around with ugly looking aprons on.

I think I counted about 150 people yesterday afternoon. I'm heading downtown this afternoon. Think I might stop by to see if Chef Rocco shows up with Mamma. The only poster I saw advertising him demostrating cooking was on a hotel used by the homeless here in town.

Is Trump in town filming the lastest "Apprentice?" This is "event" is abysmal. The "team" throwing this piece o' crap should be fired.
