something missing

about 27 days ago
We had a nice crew, cool music, food was OK-boxed due to covid but nothing memorable tasting, didn't really see much or hear anything really interesting-we just felt like 'something was missing'. Pictures were ridiculously overpriced-"$27 for ONE. would have been nice to have since this was a family trip but it was just too much
