We cooked and baked and pickled for days. The food was incredible. The actors and musicians performed amazingly. The sound, lights, direction, production, and everything else sure looked flawless from where I stood. The beer and mead flowed like, well, beer and mead.
If you were a guest, you never would have guessed the level of technical difficulties we experienced in the kitchen that morning!
