On Eating at NQC

Written in Honor of Jerry Kirksey

I have come to the conclusion that the best vantage point at the National Quartet Convention – the place where you can most appreciate the lyrics of the National Quartet Convention.

What better place to listen to and watch the groups singing about how they cannot wait to go to Heaven then surrounded by mountains of high-calorie high-fat foods?

After all, the more you eat, the faster you go to Heaven, right?

  1. That’s hilarious!!! It’s true – most of the food served at the convention is not too healthy!!

  2. Thanks! 🙂

    I actually haven’t been there, but I’ve heard the rumors. ;D

  3. We, from the Northeat, look forward to the pork sandwiches at the NQC.
    The only probelm is that the prices goes up every year.
    There is a myth around NQC that says the food service helps meet the cost of the exhibit hall during NQC week. Sounds like Kentucky Fairgounds Convention Center doesn’t charge NQC for the use of the exhibit hall.

  4. If the price of food is that high then they do not have to charge to more than break even.

  5. It’s true all the food is high calorie, but don’t you burn off those calories walking around trying to find a place to sit to eat? What is even more ridiculous than the selection and price of the food is the lack of seating.
