Where's PATP?

You'll never guess where I am going today, so I'll give you a hint.

Still don't know?

That's right. I'm going to the great State Fair of Texas. It started yesterday and it's one of my favorite events of the year. We go 3 or 4 times every year and it's only here for about 3 weeks.

Here is a list of some of the crazy foods they have served over the years.

2005 Most Creative Viva Las Vegas Fried Ice Cream
2005 Best Taste Fried PB, Jelly and Banana Sandwich
2006 Most Creative Fried Coke
2006 Best Taste Fried Praline Perfection
2007 Most Creative Deep Fried Latte
2007 Best Taste Texas Fried Cookie Dough
2008 Most Creative Fried Banana Split
2008 Best Taste Chicken Fried Bacon
2009 Most Creative Deep Fried Butter
2009 Best Taste Fernie's Deep Fried Peaches & Cream
2010 Most Creative Fried Beer™
2010 Best Taste Texas Fried FRITOS® Pie

I'm not into all the weird fried foods, but there are some "healthier" choices that are great. Of course, the slogan "Super Sized Fun" could refer to all the people who are eating those fried foods.

Have a great day. I know I will.


  1. I need to try the fried beer when I go this next Saturday. The lines are insane though. Have fun.

  2. Fried beer?! I need to know about this.

  3. According to the guy who came up with the ?Fried Beer idea, you "you take a pretzel pocket, fill it with beer, and then throw it into the deep fryer." I didn't try it, but some people I know said it wasn't good. When you break the pretzel open, warm beer poors out. Sounds gross to me.

  4. I have never been to the New York State fair. Plenty of county fairs. I'm not really a fair person. I like amusement parks though.
