I went with 3 others to the Bloomsburg Fair last night (Tuesday). '38 Special' and 'The Guess Who' were the live music---we didn't see them, but their tunes carried across the fairgrounds, and were pretty good...I jumped a bit as if I had long head-banging hair.
I came close to purchasing two items, but only purchased one. The one I did not purchased, but should have, was a door mat saying: "Ring the doorbell and run --- the dog needs exercise!" =)
The one item I did purchase was a commemorative Bloomsburg Fair mug...a manly mug... (with a unicorn). And in the mug? What else? Bob's Birch Beer, which was the culinary highlight of the night.
Also terrific were:
-Hewletts Hot Sausages
---not quite spicy enough, but good enough for me to get two
---the perfect Tuesday night dessert
-Lightly fried/battered vegatables w/vinegar
---cauliflower won, broccoli also good, onion rings yum, did not try mushrooms
I also tore off a piece of a freind's potato pancake, which was better than I expected, but still not as good as my sister's Hannukah latkes. =)
The only disappointment was the bratwurst from the Sausage Factory...it was the worst wurst!
In my freezer, waiting for Saturday is:
-Unicorn peach dumplings
-Whoopi pie from the Amish stand
-Maple cotton candy
The only two stands (on my list of recs from Josh) I did not get to, regrettably were:
-Betty & Linda’s Blueberry muffins
I think the fair ends this Saturday...
