HOLY CANNOLI! I just re-read a bunch of older posts, ynotryme is right. I would LOVE to do what Ellen's doing and fly in for the fair. But my thesis is due in the middle of it
NY state fair go-ers have fun! Report back! [ynotryme, it would be great if you'd post a music report on what you see in the misc/off-topic forum.
Too bad Alice Cooper won't be at the fair the same time I'll be there.
Have'nt seen him perform since my high school days, and I could definitely go for "no more Mr. Nice Guy, no more Mr. Cleeeean...", and "lines form on my face and my hands...I'm eighteen, I don't know what I want"..
I might just go pop that CD in while I go jogging later..
I've enjoyed seeing acts like Wierd Al Yankovich perform at the Orange County Fair in CA. And I liked seeing Carrot Top as well.
It was nice that it was included in admission. And when I worked for the airlines at LAX about 7 years ago, I even flew to Nebraska to go to the State Fair, just for fun. And I saw Wayne Newton performing there, believe it or not. That was about $10.00 extra.
I went to what is called "state fair NJ" at the Meadowlands in July.
One cannot help feeling that they are walking on the black tar pavement of the parking lot of Giants Stadium!! (cause you are).
I quickly learned that the best kept secret is to use the bathrooms inside Giant Stadium instead of the porto-potties. (and you can get a great look at the football field)
There is also an actual NJ State Fair, held up in Sussex County, NJ., with all that 4H stuff. (the Giants Stadium one was strictly rides, (no animals) and shows like the sword swallower, etc....
At least at the NYS fair, there should be lots of green grass!
And a way more country like feeling.
If any of you roadfooders are going to be at the NYS fair Labor Day weekend, let me know. We can meet in the wine tasting tent!
