Drew & Ben Talk About Fair Food on KFI 640 AM
UPDATE! Listen to the whole show, on-demand, right here. Fast forward to 54:30 for direct access to LA Foodie goodness.
I hope that the AM radio waves are holding onto their butts because today at 3:30 PM, Ben & I (Drew) will again venture outside the cozy confines of social media and into the open waters of broadcast media. We will be joining Neil Saavedra on his show, The Fork Report, which airs Saturdays (TODAY!) from 2PM - 4PM on KFI 640 AM in Los Angeles. To launch the online streaming player, click the image below.
Since we had so much fun the last time we appeared on the show, we’re extra-geeked to return for a serious academic discussion of the totally insane fair food that we encountered at this year’s LA County Fair. Foods like this Garlic Corn Dog Pizza:
OC Fair 2011 Snack Attack
If you were following LA Foodie’s Twitter stream this past Friday, you might have noticed a bunch of rapid updates right around 4 PM. That’s because on Fridays, from 12 Noon to 4 PM, nearly all of the food vendors at the OC Fair participate in something that I like to call, “Many Mini Snacks.” The OC Fair’s theme this year is “Let’s Eat,” so we did. For four hours each Friday, you can get snack-sized samples from most of the vendors for two bucks. Lest you think that’s a rip-off, think of it this way: Would you rather spend ten dollars on a gigantic brick of french fries, or would you rather spend that ten bucks on a roughly equal amount of five different things? For me, the choice is easy. Variety is the secret blend of eleven herbs and spices of life. You can click on each title below for a link to the original tweet. Whee! It’s like time travel! We hit as many places as we could before the 2 PM deadline, and this is what we ate.
