Orange International Street Fair This Weekend
Is the Orange International Street Fair here again? Yes it is, reminding us that summer is wrapping up. For those unfamiliar, it ain't the OC Fair. Chicken Charlie will not be in attendance, but I'm sure there will be just as much fried foods there than is probably advisable to consume in any quantity. And admission is free.
The scene will be the typical one every year. The parking will suck, but there will be plenty of domestic beer (care of Budweiser, its official sponsor) in flimsy cups of the variety that the snobs will turn their noses at, and food from "internationally" themed streets.
Here's a list of the foods to expect, categorized in its different "streets."
