What do you do when you go to a County fair? One thing you can do is eat! I visited the 7/2009 Alameda County fair (San Francisco Bay Area) and listed below, some of the more interesting food I saw. There isn’t enough room or time to list all of the food at the fair.

Note: I missed the Louisiana Jazz, Gators, & Gumbo night at the Fair – I am sure there was a lot of interesting New Orleans/Louisiana Creole/Cajun food there.
In Chicago 7/29/09 I was driving to an event to promote my Creole Potato Salad that is in the Chicago Jewel supermarkets. I heard DJs on a radio station talking about how they loved to eat Potato Salad with different foods. Since I live in Oakland, Calif, I figured this had to be divine intervention. I was in Chicago to promote my Potato Salad! By the way, this was an “Old School” R&B show, it wasn’t a radio food show. I decided I have to get some of my New Orleans Creole Potato Salad to those DJs. I couldn’t go to the station (on Michigan ave) until Sunday. That place was locked up tighter than Fort Knox. But I got lucky and was able to give the Salad to a worker who just happened to be walking into the station at that time (divine intervention again). The next day I called and called the station but couldn’t connect to the right people. I think the broadcast may have been syndicated, so it could have originated from anywhere in the Country. Since I had time left before my plane leaves, I figured I would go back to the station. I still couldn’t get in and almost missed my flight back to Cali. But I haven’t given up yet. But now I have to find the name of the Radio station again. But I will. Maybe I should send them Blogs or something.
