As we mentioned it was cold and blustery day for Meatopia. I was thankful to have the chefs from Charcoal BYOB braving the weather to lend multiple hands and minds to the cause. We were given paper plates to use for serving the crowds of people wandering through the event. To combat the winds they suggested running lines of inverted duct tape down our plating table. The bottoms of the plates would adhere to the tape and allow us to begin plating dishes ahead to accommodate the crowds. The tape worked like a charm. Only occasionally did a giant gust of wind send a plate or two flying. So here's a tip, for your next outdoor event, remember to bring tape.
