This year Nick, Curtis, Blog Reader Kristen, and I started state fair season off with a bang on Friday 8/27. Yes, you read that correctly—Curtis was in attendance. I can
blame it on thank Rush for playing at the Grand Stand. Unfortunately I forgot to get photographic evidence that he was there, but I highly doubt he’ll deny it since then he wouldn’t be able to say he saw Rush. Although, he can deny wearing the Rush concert t-shirt…
Instead of taking the bus, we drove to the fair and parked on the grounds which was a first for us all. It worked out well because, while the cklahrs were at the Rush concert, Nick and I got to take a little nappy nap in the explorer, while listening to said concert.
I ate many deliciously unhealthy food items throughout the day which probably let to me feeling nauseated later. Nothing that water and some more food couldn’t cure though. Items consumed by me were:
- 2 corn dogs w/ mustard (not at the same time)
- been and beef taco w/sour cream (Taco King)
- black currant iced tea (French Meadow Bakery and Café)
- Cherry Coke (in souvenir refillable mug)
- Coke Zero (from Butcher Boys, $1 refill, mug savings of $2)
- Tiny Tim mini donuts
- cheese pizza (Vescio’s)
- garlic bread w/marinara sauce (Italian Junction)
- corn on the cob
- Fresh French Fries
Kristen heard about some sort of Vanilla Lavender Cupcake at French Meadow Bakery and Café, that’s why we stopped there. I can’t say I liked the Lavender flavored frosting. It tasted like I was eating something that should be put on my body. However the black current iced tea was delicious. It wasn’t sweetened and didn’t need to be. All I know is that I want to drink more of it.
Overall, it was a great way to start the fair season! Hopefully Curtis will make it back to the fair before 2013.
