I wish people would post the prices in their announcements and homepage.  Most of us have price points for events.  I personally have NEVER read about an event and became so excited that I ignored my price point once I clicked through far enough to learn the price.  Instead I feel like I've wasted my time if I have to click through a few pages just to learn how much the even costs and find its above my price point.

We went to this event last year and enjoyed it.  Early on it was VERY crowded with lots  of lines, later in the afternoon it was less crowded and we had good access to the tastings.  Overall it felt like most of the higher demand tastings like the Raclette station lasted.  We stopped by Dino beforehand and shared a burger so we could deal with the slowness to get to taste.

At $40/each we will not attend but it still is a great opportunity if you value local/smaller cheese producers.  Most of these cheeses are over $20/lb so the value of the cheese you taste is probably very high.

We got there right before it opened, and had a good 15 minutes to hit all the stations before lines developed as they slowly processed the line into the bar. We were also able to grab seats at one of the few tables that way, so had a place to camp.
