One of the fun State Fair eating experiences is a hole-in-the-wall concession operated by a consortium of churches that features around 20 flavors of pie made by volunteers.  Also on the subject of pie, Sat. Sept. 11 should be the annual Pie Festival in Pie Town, NM (several hours south & west of Albuquerque). 
Now THAT is some useful information!  Thanks!

    I thought about the choices a bit, and come back with my top pick--

    KANSAS CITY

    BBQ, K C STRIP STEAKS, and PAN-FRIED CHICKEN...Three of the 4 basic food groups !!

          BBQ is divided into pork and beef

            Having been to Santa Fe, I have to say it is one of the most expensive cities across this country.  The accomodations and some of the good restaurants  are very pricey.  In addition, many people (including me) had a sudden case of altitude sickness when you first get there.  Initially, you don't know what it is, but a list of symptoms soon confirm the diagnosis.  Not fun for a day or two, and makes breathing difficult.  So... for a short duration, I wouldn't recommend Santa Fe.  It sure is pretty and interesting though. 

            Albuquerque is less expensive.... but during festival times in Santa Fe.... be prepared to pay beaucoup bucks.

                   I considered BOURBON to be my entry for the 'fourth food group', but then decided it was my regional Bias showing thru. I think I would time the gathering to allow the golden Sweet Corn to be my menu completer at a K C meeting.

                  I agree with sleepy- Santa Fe has a lot of good things, but limited-access and higher costs would keep me away I think.

                  TJ- If Seafood could be "Catfish" then I think KC could qualify...but the only Oysters in that area don't come from the SEA !!

                    I think that Baltimore would be a great  place to go for a  Roadfood. tour.  Everything is very close so that you can spend more time eating!
                     
                    You would have Lexington Market to  explore     with some outstanding food,,,,,,,,,great place for  crab cakes  and coddies and  Baltimore's Berger cookies  among other delicious foods. Baltimore has  pit beef  sandwiches  which are delicious.   You  could   do  a wonderful  crab cracking  feast at a couple of real good places.  G and M's  is  a very short drive  away  for a  sit down crab cake dinner.
                     
                    Vacarro's  Italian Pastry  Shop in Little Italy is a   dessert lover's dream  with  wonderful Italian pastries, ices, and  great sundaes.  A stroll through the downtown farmer's market is a great trip.................all kinds of wonderful food here, plus lots of fun to see.  (This is on Sundays.)

                      I have always considered New York to have the best restaurants. I used to live in the Southwest and enjoyed many fine meals in New Mexico. However, my vote is for Charleston---the Southern hospitality can't be beat!

                        there  are vegetables in kc. mashed potatoes AND french fries. 
                        But of course, the real 4th food group is Gravy, which is a KC specialty
                        Brown gravy, red gravy, redeye gravy, white gravy, au jus gravy.
                        Gravytown!

                          I really think that a place like Pittsburgh would be pretty good. Plenty of great places to eat of a pretty good variety and a spot like the strip to spend some time walking around.

                            For next January:

                            THE HUNGRY MUSE—An Exploration of Food in Literature—

                            The 29th annual Key West Literary Seminar
                            January 6 - 16, 2011
                            The speaker's list includes Diana Abu-Jaber, Ruth Reichl,  Mark Kurlansky, Madhur Jaffrey, Jonathan Gold, Calvin Trillin and dozens more. See details here:
                            This event "...will bring together dozens of today’s most compelling, thought-provoking, and funniest writers– memoirists, novelists, poets, historians, journalists, and all manner of lettered gastronome, gourmand, and epicure– to explore food and its place in contemporary literature." 
                             
                            What a great time for a Southernmost RoadFood meet! Think Key West pinks (shrimp), stone crab, mango, Creole food, Cuban coffee, and real key lime pie...

                                  I would like the next tour to be in the West or the Midwest. It seems that all of the tours that I remember have been in the East or the South. That said, I have to vote for Kansas City also. I freely admit that it is my hometown and I enjoy taking people out to our various local restaurants. Imagine starting your day with a Lamar's Doughnut then stopping at Oklahoma Joe's, Arthur Bryant's, or L.C.'s for BBQ; The Golden Ox or Savoy Grill for a Steak; and of course Stroud's for Fried Chicken or a Chicken Fried Steak. Throw in a brewery tour at Boulevard Brewery between stops and Murray's Ice Cream for dessert and you have a full day or two.

                                  Schedule this the first weekend of October and the American Royal BBQ Contest will also be going on.

                                            Other cities would be wonderful but these are the choices before us. Though I think an alternate title for these fora ought to be Sons and Daughters of Anarchy(like the TV show). I would like too see folks come to the west coast and a day spent at Ecola Seafood, Norma's, and Waves of Grain Bakery in Seaside-Cannon Beach would be a scenic delight with a final stop for pie at Camp 18 would provide a unique experience. Portland has a wide variety of places as well, ranging from ethnic Mexican and Ethiopian to sandwich shops run by first-rate chefs to maybe the best in country coffee-bakery combos. Also a vibrant food-cart scene. Portland is a great unknown food city but i know i would welcome the nation here and would be great to have so many roadfooders here.

                                                ...I have to vote for Kansas City also. I freely admit that it is my hometown and I enjoy taking people out to our various local restaurants....Schedule this the first weekend of October and the American Royal BBQ Contest will also be going on.

                                                CNW


                                                And you could all come visit me (and CNW, if he chooses to volunteer again this year) at the American Royal's Barbecue Sauce Store.  Where else will you get an opportunity to sample and purchase, with all money going to local charities, hundreds of different Barbecue Sauces from across the nation?

                                                          Because it has so many unique foods, I always though St. Louis would be a good candidate for a Roadfood eating tour.  Imagine a weekend of eating toasted ravioli, gooey butter cakes, slingers and St. Paul sandwiches.  Then again, I may be trying to justify another trip to Ted Drewes!


                                                          St. Louis would be fun. Because we go so often, we have started skipping some of the standards, like toasted ravioli and gooey butter cake. We couldn't skip Ted Drewe's this weekend. It would be fun to be with a group of folks who have never had a St. Paul or real St. Louis toasted ravioli. I would get excited by those things all over again. Something else that is sort of unique to St. Louis is roasted meat sandwiches. We've had beef, pork and lamb sandwiches at various places in St. Louis and have never had them anywhere else that taste quite like those sandwiches. I would put Iron Barley on the list for sure, just for the pork sandwiches. I had a roast leg of lamb sandwich Friday at Schlafly's Taproom that was very good.

                                                            I thought about the choices a bit, and come back with my top pick--

                                                            KANSAS CITY

                                                            BBQ, K C STRIP STEAKS, and PAN-FRIED CHICKEN...Three of the 4 basic food groups !!


                                                            The Peachtree Buffet for soulfood, too. Typically, how many people usually participate in the fall tour?
