After not having Festival last year, I was thrilled to be back this year.
Easy flights, both landing early, a good LYFT driver, and a wonderful welcome from everyone I encounter at the Hilton Americas hotel makes this the highlight of my year.
The view from my room:
|Hotel oatmeal, not instant|
|The first of a couple meals at Pappadeaux, a favorite|
|Salad bar lunch from Phoenicia|
