The best means of catching our attention, though, was the food – Free, sweet, savory food. Like fish swimming towards bait, we were hooked by cupcakes and lemon bars. A caterer from Northern Virginia gave us a taste of shrimp and grits. Another was giving away giant cookies. The best were the cake pops. These bite size, frosting-coated, round pieces of cake on a stick made me want more than one.
