The foos on the happy hour menu was fantastic. We are outside, because the inside had a very bad strong smell of mother balls. It was so strong, we had to eat outside. I have been there twice before and never noticed that small before. SO I hope it was a temporary thing.

The venue gardens are super great for relaxing and for enjoying the entertainment. The beer selection is good and the food from the food trucks is also good but smaller portions for the money. Definitely will be going to another event in the future!

The Hangout burger was delicious. The BBQ chicken flat bread was also good and we loved the fries. Too bad the Hogans Pilsner is on back order. That was the only drawback.
