The best POLISH FESTIVAL ever!! - San Diego Oct. 13-14

I went to this festival with my Polish wife and two kids, it was in a very small area and way too many people pushing around and the worst thing was the cops made me move from my comfy table to the crowded beer garden. I had a beer in a non-beer area. But I couldn't be with my family because my kids couldn't be in the beer garden. This would NEVER happen in Poland.Overall the festival was cool but still the Polish people were quite reserved and not overly welcomming. For example I said "hello one Polish plate please" and the woman simply growled back "$12!" and this was after some woman cut right in front of me in line, ahh felt just like Poland! Even after 3 years living in Poland and being Polish-American Poles are hard to figure out, some act like they are constantly smelling something terrible, while others are the greatest human beings I have ever met. I know you could probably say that about any group. But damn it was good to drink a cold Zywiec after 3 months without.

I heard that it was really small too.

I imagined it couldnt be as good than the one in Chicago

But damn it was good to drink a cold Zywiec after 3 months without.

at least you had a good piwo, How was the food there?

Sorry for the bad event guys.

We have a new priest who is extremely corrupt, he fired the entire team of experienced church workers, they used to run the festival. He hired a while new crew who had no idea what they were doing.

Another example of his corruption, he spent $16,000 in one day, and listed it as "furniture". He was living in a nice La Jolla condo near the beach, and had a 52" plasma screen on his wall. He even put our church (which we've been working for over 10 years) on the real estate market without telling anybody, A bit extreme for a priest.

Anyways, the festival closed at 9 rather than 10 this year. SDPD was prevalent, and harassing dozens of people who have been attending this event for a decade now....

There was even a stabbing after the event on Saturday.... it was asians though.

That priest should be fired!

Too bad it didnt turn out the way you wanted it to.

You ought to come to Chicago next year and see how we do it up :)

Agreed all around guys. The festival just wasn't itself this year. Still fun but the new rules and what not was disappointing. It was a lot more fun in the past when you could walk around with your beer, even when I was still underage at the time.

I've probably been attending this event for 8 years now, whoa
