‘Soiree’ disappointing

My wife and I attended the June 28 Summer Soiree in the City event on Pennsylvania Avenue in Greensburg. We purchased two $15 wristbands and received our raffle tickets. We visited a lot of the stores, but most had no idea of what the tickets were for, nor were they accepting them. An advertisement for this event promised six food trucks and there were only four. There were supposed to be six wineries and there were only two.

I ordered and paid for two sandwiches from a truck and was told to come back in 15-20 minutes to get them. When we finally got our food we went to sit in the little park near Second Avenue. It was filthy and the seats were covered in seeds and bird droppings.

The idea was a good one to bring people into town, but the result was far from good. If you advertise something to get people to visit, then you better deliver, or don’t expect them to return for another event. I know we won’t. It was very disappointing.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
