Today is the first official day of The Great Ohio State Fair. The weather is cool, the rides are ready, and butter sculptures are cooled and ready for display. The Midway is open to take your hard-earned dollars in an attempt to win a Bon Jovi mirror, and my favorite – THE FOOD - is stocked and ready to serve!
Fair food once a year is an indulgence that needs to be satisfied. From the cheese and butter sandwiches in the Dairy Barn, to the little Tom Thumb donuts on the way out and ALL foods in between. And for me – ANYTHING ON A STICK! Cheese on a stick. Vegetables on a stick. Meat on a stick. Chicken on a stick. Deep-fried Twinkies on a stick, and hell… before it’s all said and done, I think you could serve me up a “stick” on a stick and I would eat it, because it’s deep-fried, right? Wash it all down with a Giant Tea or Lemon Shake-Up and that my friends is what they call a “good day.” Though winning a BON JOVI mirror would be cool too.
