Episode #132 The Great Minnesota State Fair

In today's episode we talk about the Minnesota State Fair, and all the trappings thereof
We'll also get into the food that we ate on our trip (and some that we didn't get a chance to eat)
Finally, we discuss a beer that Aaron tasted (and didn't enjoy) as well as a different beer that Aaron drank (and found palatable)

We really did enjoy our trip to the Minnesota State Fair, if  you'd like to read up on some history of the Minnesota State Fair, you can check out the Wikipedia page.

The drink we tasted in this episode was a riff on a sidecar (the original version we've featured on a previous episode of the podcast), and we decided to change the base from Brandy to Rum, and use the Tattersall Purple Reign in lieu of the Orange liqueur (or Triple Sec).

We went with:

2 oz White Rum
1 oz Tattersall Purple Reign
3/4 oz lemon juice
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Shake the Rum, Purple Reign, and Lemon Juice over ice, pour into lowball glass, add 2 dashes bitters and stir. Sip and enjoy.

We wanted to touch on the many places that we ate or drank at:

Cookies from Sweet Martha's
Cider, Beer, and Duck wings from Giggles
$2.50 cheeseburgers from Mike's
The Boozy Berries and Barb Trifle from The Hideaway Speakeasy

If you've never listened to Steven Wright and didn't understand what Aaron was talking about with the monotone pitch person portion, please avail yourself of 10 minutes of wonderful one liners

Have a wonderful day, and thank you for listening!
