I was supposed to go to the state fair this afternoon, but I didn't. →
[More:]I hauled ass back from camping in the mountains, but when I went to meet my friends I just couldn't deal with more driving, expensive parking, and crowds. Not to mention I'd slept like crap (in the rain, even) and had more than a few strained muscles So I begged off.
I felt pretty deprived of fair food, though. Sigh.
So I just went to a local chain called Cook Out
and got a "tray." In Cook Out parlance, that means an entree, two sides and a drink. The choice of sides kills me--fries, onion rings, hushpuppies, chicken nuggets, and corn dog are some of them. So yes, you can get a burger and a side of nuggets.
I ended up with a cheeseburger, onion rings, a corndog, and a chocolate peanut butter malt. All the goodness of fair food at 1/4 the price!
(And no crowds)
