Summer Travels - Part Seven

>> Sunday, July 26, 2009

The Gilroy Garlic Festival. One of a kind experience I must admit and I am not just talking about the garlic flavored ice cream. (Which might I say is actually amazingly tasty considering it's garlic.) The food, the people, the music, the culture...dang like no other.

The temperature on this day was in the upper 90s and hit 100 during midday. So you figure any one with half a brain would stay in the shade or walk toward the cooler areas. However, being the idiot I am, sat in the blazing rays of that furnace in the sky to wait for this guy. In case you don't know it's Fabio Viviani, Top Chef Season 5 fan favorite contestant. After seeing his demo...not that great of a cook.

Me - "Man it's freaking hot out here"
Friend - "Can you go stand by the hot garlic thing and take a picture for me"
Me - grumble grumble

Nothing better than some garlic shrimp made by a lady adding too much alcohol to the pan. Or at least I think that's a lady...maybe it's a man without eyebrows...

Mini Golf. A perfectly calm summer afternoon of smacking a tiny ball around and failing to get it in a hole. At the same time being surrounded by oddly shaped trees and bushes. Not to mention the fact that the house is about as tall as my friend. Well at least it didn't cost that much.

Summer Travels - Part Five

There are few things that I enjoy more than spending a holiday weekend with family. Perhaps its blowing up a bunch of these bad boys and eating to my heart's content on a holiday.

 The amazing aftermath of smoldering cardboard, paper, and plastic. Definitely the best fifty some dollars I have ever spent.

This is Rusty the stray dog. We found him wandering in the street and drinking water from the sprinklers on the front lawn. He's probably still sitting at the animal shelter right now waiting to be picked up or adopted. If anyone's interested he's a nice guy that just needs a good home and family. He knows basic commands and is quiet for the most part.

My Uncle and Auntie have this huge garden in the back. They can grow anything and everything they can get their hands on. One of our meals was composed of all fresh stuff with some fancy delicacies hard to find in most places. Most restaurants normally charge a arm and a leg for this type of food.
