A September 2004 trip
to Los Angeles by Craig Randall
Quote: Although it gets more and more congested and blighted annually, we always make our family pilgrimage to the L.A. fair. I've added a few must-dos to this journal.
Restaurant | "General Fare at the L.A. Fair"
-Texas donuts: We usually get a chocolate-glazed on the way out at the end of the day. The kids split it, and there's still lots left for Mom and Dad to nibble.
-Hot dog on a stick: For lemonade... only for the lemonade. It's "churned" in front of you by employees brought in from all the other franchises as an employee reward for hard work and dedication to the chain. It's kind of neat--they put them up at the Fairplex Sheraton, schedule them for a few shifts, and let them enjoy the park.
-BBQ corn-on-the-cob (multiple vendors): Get it with butter and garlic salt, or don't get it at all.
-Mexican village: Delicious and varied. Order some pozole for a hot treat.
Again, we come to browse, not buy, so we eat on the run and spend just an evening there now. A quick ride on the tramway and the ferris wheel does the trick. After all, this isn't the Minnesota State Fair!
