I was surprised (pleasantly) to see that the 2006 NOW&FE was held, but just as surprised, that no one has commented on here. While some of it is pretty wine-specific, it's still about the food.
We were fortunate enough to make the '05 event (and several earlier ones), and, while the wine aspect was below some of the other events that we've attended worldwide, it was great fun with excellent food.
Looking at their Web site, it seems that this was an abbreviated festival, but would be interested in hearing about it. It also looked like more restaurants were open and participating, than I had expected - great news!
