Recent renovations including an overhaul of the food and drink program were highlighted. Chef Andrew Brown served up tasty treats including double bacon smoked popcorn, chopped salad, short ribs and mash, crab mac and cheese and more. An extensive beer and wine list was available for Yelpers to whet their palates.YEE Collage 12:19 foodWith so many people in attendance, check-in was a bit slower than usual. Field House came to the rescue by extending the event a full half hour, so that everyone could enjoy themselves. About an hour into the event, local band Cheers Elephant took the stage to entertain the masses.  YEE Collage 12:19 mixIn keeping with the true spirit of the season, donations of twin sheet sets were collected for Project H.O.M.E., a local non-profit geared towards breaking the cycle of homelessness.
