State Fair Bingo Night
Every year our Minnesota State Fair Trivia Contest gets a little smaller. This 6th Annual Festivity has been whittled down to one evening of State Fair Bingo. We started with a group of twelve then lost revelers along the way. Truth be told, once we had a BINGO WINNER our whole group sort of fell apart.
I consider myself to be an uncommonly knowledgeable Fairer, but this year I was introduced to a delectable treat that has been around for awhile. Holy Land (over in the International Bazaar) has an herby-smooth Mediterranean lemonade that when combined with beer becomes Beergaritas kissing cousin and those who partake are happy to be kissed. In a very scientific Fairground poll taken after a Minnesota State Fair version of Pass the Dutchie, the Med-Lemon-Beer tied with Beergarita as the most refreshing drink (3 votes for Beergarita, 3 for Med-Lemon-Beer, and 3 "I cannot choose, they are both super tasty.").
State Fair Bingo Food Lessons: our group usually loses interest before we get to the Corn Dog versus Pronto Pup taste test, a few bites of lamb testicles are all a person needs, and corn on the cob can be a spiritual experience.
