Was there any food, you ask? Only the world's largest cheese and charcuterie board (not confirmed by Guinness Book of World Records), along with Jamaican barbecue, tacos (meat and vegan), fried oysters and mint chip ice cream sandwiches, all house-made from the award-winning chefs at Vantage Venues.
