Do people even go to TUM anymore? I thought its organizers killed off all interest when they started charging $25 per person (with not even a free drink or anything) just to pick at small food items that still cost $5-7. They should just die.

I always loved food fests. There is no event like a good food fest where we can enjoy wide variety of food. I still remember the goodness of a seafood fest I attended a few years back. When going for events like a wedding I expect some variety but most caterers not only have variety but boringly repetitive food menu. There are exceptions like franco freshy corporate and event catering, Toronto, Ontario but they are a rarity. Food fests are kind of a relief from the food we eat always. Everyone likes to have a change.
