    First off, thank you thank, thank you, thank you to all the people who have answered my question related to catering and food vending. It has been a little over 9 months since I officially started my catering business. We have had our trials and tribulations. But I love it. This week was one of our best weekends and I thought I would share it with the group. We got an ongoing gig selling on Friday nights at a new local brewing company at their tasting room. Our first day was this past Friday. I also had an event for the  grand opening of a new pet shop. On Saturday night I did a co-ed baby shower for 110, Pulled pork, chicken, and homemade, beer and onion, brats using the breweries beer. This was a private event at the brewery. They also had a situation arise and needed me to vend again Saturday night. We hit it out of the park, on all four events. Lots and lots of happy customers over the last two days,  The best thing was Friday night we literally had a couple eat every item off the menu over a three hour period. They kept coming back and saying that was fantastic what else do you have.
