Wisconsin Valley Fair, 8/1/14

I made my return last night at the historic Wausau Fair. I kept it simple. I know what I wanted. I got my cheese curds at the Breakfast Optimists stand. I got my italian food; tried their grilled cheese sandwich with marinara, and it was absolutely scrumptious. I had a tasty cannoli there too. I ended the evening with a cheddar wurst corn dog, which was good, but after the curds and italian food, it was more of a filler. It’s like having a slice of Angelo’s Pizza and then having a slice of Pizza Hut; going from excellent to good.

Overall, I am satisfied with last night’s food experience. Now onto the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis. See you tomorrow! 9/10

FAIRy Greasy

Well hello bloggers!  Did everyone get through Monday?  To be honest, I was dreading this day like the plague.  Then I got some good news early in my shift, and it was all good.  It just takes one piece of good news to brighten our day.

This past weekend I attended the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, Wisconsin, and I have to say it was a terrific food experience.  Here is what I had to dine on:

Krispy Kreme Chocolate Covered Bacon Cheeseburger, Garlic Fries, Buffalo Chicken Dip, Parmesan Garlic Boneless Wings, Several Cream Puffs, Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots. 3-Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Mac & Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and Mac & Cheese Bites.  Sounds like a lot, huh?  Well most of these items I at least split with one other individual over a span of 2 visits.

On the Krispy Kreme Chocolate Covered Bacon Cheeseburger, my mom couldn’t understand how I could eat that shit. I responded with, “I wanted something unique to eat that I’ve never eaten before”.  It was actually pretty darn good, even with a few beers in me.

As far as a grade on the food, A for experience, A for atmosphere and a B for food.   Since the food plays a major role in my grading scale, I’ll give the State Fair a B+.  The Cream Puffs were the best thing I ate there, and the Buffalo Chicken Dip was the most surprising thing I ate because I never expected the fair to have it.  The worst thing I ate was the boneless garlic parmesan wings because they didn’t taste like garlic parmesan; I don’t know what kind of sauce was on the chicken.

Tomorrow, I will be discussing my experience at Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

FEEDING FRENZY

Good Morning and a Good Friday to you!

The weekend awaits us. For me, its fair season. My town of residence has their annual fair going on. Let the greasy food intake begin! I actually went today, twice. Our fair in Wausau is known for “Cheese Curds”. If you don’t know what a cheese curd is, it’s pretty much the best invention ever. Raw cheese curds dipped in batter and deep fried. What’s not to like about this? I had two orders of these “Cheese Curds” today. Corn dogs, beer, nachos, burgers, french fries, pizza are typical fair foods that you see everywhere. I am not going to rate this specific visit, but I’d give the Cheese Curds an A. Top notch!

I am going to the Wausau Fair again tonight after I get outta work, but I’m most excited about the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, Wisconsin, which I will be visiting on Saturday. This particular fair is most known for their Cream Puffs. West Allis is about a 3 hour drive from Wausau, so we plan on getting there around noon. I’m very pumped about this event, and I will be blogging about this on Sunday Night. Feeding Frenzy!
