Well, our trip to the State Fair of Texas turned out pretty well. It was overcast and cool but never rained, and we had not only beer and fries, but managed to find what we can only assume was a vegan burrito. The owner of the food stand in question came out, phone attached to ear, diamond encrusted Texas-shaped pinky ring on finger, and diligently answered our questions before ordering the kitchen to whip up a bean, lettuce, tomato, and guacamole burrito with side of jalapeños – even giving us a big discount. He even had Firemen’s #4 – on tap! I hadn’t seen this stuff outside Austin before, so, all in all, we were pretty happy fairgoers.
We also managed to totally avoid the livestock “show” while visiting the automobile building, the Hall of State, and the Midway, where we took a scream-filled ride on the pirate ship. Win.
The boy loved the retro State Fair beer cups. They’ve looked like this for as long as I can remember.
