So who is going to POE this year? The vendor list looks great! This will be my 13th year and I wouldn't miss it!!! I love the Gala preview night, lots of food, wine, music, a great silent auction, and of course first shot at so many wonderful ORCHIDS!!! There is a nice little motel on Lombard St. just 4 blocks from POE, nothing fancy, but if you tell them you are there for the show they give you a discount $$$, last year it was only $59. a night!!! sign me up!
