Earlier this year our friends, the Karps, told us stories about their annual Meat Fest event. Being vegetarians, my husband & I politely acted interested & nodded our heads, satisfied that we wouldn't be able to attend because of a class camping trip commitment...fast forward 4 months, work commitments which led to the inevitable cancellation of the class camping trip... "YES! We'd love to come to your Meat Fest!!" ("if we attend, will they revoke our Vegetarian membership...?") Not too worried about temptation, we packed up our beer, kids & appetizers & headed on over to the Karp abode. We can safely say, we resisted any temptation there might have been, filled up on yummy appetizers (a vegetarians saving grace) and thank goodness...beer ain't meat!
