Re: “Raleigh Seafood Festival

Completely disgraceful! Whoever gave this totally inept SouthEast Events organization the green light, clearly did not do any homework or research at all. They should be permanently banned and forced to fully refund to anyone who demands it. They could not have done a worse job. I personally spoke to Jamell who was supposedly leading. He could see it was a disaster with almost no vendors, just a few food trucks, no music, absurd lines and how can a food truck run out of food? He and this organization should be immediately sacked and banned from any future Raleigh Parks and Recreation contracts. No excuse at all for such a wanton display of incompetence. Let a local high school organize next time if you do not want professionals.

Re: “Raleigh Seafood Festival

Parking fiasco, long line to enter, NO napkins or sinks to clean up, Lines to get food (what little was available) took almost an hour. What a waste! You would be better off going to Crab Fest at Red Lobster.

Re: “Raleigh Seafood Festival

If possible, I would give zero stars! A waste of our time and money. Three of us and we all agree. First of all, a LONG line to enter the parking lot only to find NO parking places and NO ONE giving instruction. One admission line was extremely long while another across the park was basically empty and NO ONE was giving instruction. Basically, it was a $7 admission for the privilege of ordering from a few food trucks with huge lines. The organizers appeared totally unprepared. We left without ordering, tried to get a refund for a total rip off - of course, to no avail.

Re: “Raleigh Seafood Festival

This is a waste of money. There were hundreds of people, but only 5 food vendors (only 4 serving seafood). The long lines made customers inpatient and even angry especially after being told the vendor was out of seafood when finally getting to the font of the line. Most of the attendees left emptied-handed and went to a local restaurant. The organizers made a profit from unsatisfied locals!!!

Re: “Raleigh Seafood Festival

What a joke. Whoever planned this should be ashamed of themselves. Waste $7/person on admission to meet only 5 food trucks with lines 50 people long each. Everyone seemed to congregate at the NC Seafood Restaurant once they were disappointed with the festival. I highly recommend just going there for seafood this weekend.

Re: “Helgamite, Fin'Amor, Plow

This was Helgamite's second time at Slim's, and I have to say, their best performance to date (I have seen them more than anyone else). The crowd was on fire, the staff was more than awesome. Great venue, great staff, great bands. Period. Thanks for the kind words, the band is very appreciative.

Re: “Sheila Fleming & Emanual Nfingani

Singer-songwriter Sheila Fleming joins with Congolese guitarist-bassist-vocalist Emmanuel Nsingani to bring an exquisite new vibe to her indie-folk stylings. Their musical chemistry is extremely enchanting, creating a broader, more culturally and musically-enriched expression to Sheila's originals and obscure covers. Emmanuel is a virtuoso on bass and guitar, a luscious singer, an inspiring writer and arranger, and has been energizing triangle audiences performing with the Congolese jazz fusion quartet, MUNINGU." The duo will bring Muningu guitarist, the exceptional Elie Mabanza, as a most honored guest.
