Why I should be the First Official LA County Fair Foodie.
Imagine my delight upon seeing via Twitter this week that the LA County Fair is looking for the very first official Fair Foodie to cover this year’s events. As one of my BFFs said when I shared the news “How could their possibly be anyone more perfect for the job than you?” I concur.
So I’m throwing my hat into the ring and offering my top three reasons why I am indeed the most perfect person for the job.
3. As I proudly stated in 2009; I love the LA County Fair. I know what you’re thinking; who doesn’t? But what you and the most esteemed judges need to understand is that I really, REALLY love The Fair (by the way judges, have I told you how nice you look today?) We’re talking, favorite-day-of-the-whole-year kind of love. My birthday? Please! Christmas? Overrated. None of these days hold a candle to my annual pilgrimage to The Fair. It is truly the happiest day of the year.
2. The LA County Fair is the largest county fair in the country (take that, every other state!) Just one of the many reasons we heart this loves LA. Apparently, LA loves us too. We recently found out that we are ranked among the approximate top 13,000 blogs by users in Los Angeles. Seeing as Google says they have over 1 trillion unique URL’s, that’s kinda big news. I will make it my mission to convince Angelenos that they need to attend The Fair. Really LA, why wouldn’t you go? Where else do you get rides, animals, shopping and food all in one local destination?
1. While I love everything the fair has to offer, the food is what brings me back year after year. I will gladly eat anything the fair has to offer. I wait with baited breath every year for the new fried delight. Because really, there’s always tomorrow for salad. How often do you get to eat a zucchini weenie? You may think a foodie would snub their nose at the mention of “fair food”. But let me tell you, there are treasures to be found on the grounds of The Fair! Wine tastings, meats smoked right in front of your eyes, ice cream churned on the premises; it’s a food lover’s fantasy. Plus, the true mission of a foodie is to bravely explore every food adventure you encounter. I wholeheartedly welcome the task.
So, if the LA County Fair needs a Foodie with Flair, I am the girl. we heartsters, if you think I should be awarded the Blue Ribbon, let us know!
The 2010 LA County Fair runs from Sept. 4– Oct. 3.
