Taste the crap
Well.. Taste of Edmonton, may have well been called taste of crap. Gug. I suppose it started out ok, but the food as we went along there I would say is on par with craptastic mall food. Not exactly a cheap eat either, at 75 cents per tick, usually 3-5 tix per sampler size. Buffalo skewers may as well have been pulled out of aforementioned bison's arse, and the calamari was shall we say limp as genitalia, and the polish potato cakes were well, extremely uneventful. Frozen choco banana's were alright though, and grasshopper pie was decent, but you really can't screw up deserts eh? I kept expecting to see the Soylent Green booth. How about Coke-a-cola Zero's brilliant marketing? 32 Degree weather, lukewarm Coke Zero, and direct sunlight on BLACK as a devil's bottom massage chairs. Any takers? Well one hairy, and very sweaty guy took em up on a nice searing massage. Mind you, I think after that one dude sat there, my companion noted that no one else ever sat in the same barcolounger. (Piccies in the July album)
The apres event festivities were more fun, with the city center fountains cooling off kids, folks just wanting to reduce their body temperature. I managed to get a couple of alright snaps. Then there was the car show, which had some supa shiny rides, more chrome than my high school braces, and lots of great antiques. Heritage days should offer much better fare. I hope.
So food 2, fountain and car show 8. Yes, that's out of 10.
