We came. We ate. We enjoyed every bite. Sometimes you know you're "in the flow", when events line up making life full of joy. Such was our food experience at Spokane's 2015 Interstate Fair. We stopped at Izzy's Bar-B-Que for fire roasted corn and a brisket sandwich drenched in bbq sauce, then proceeded to Aebleskivers to delight in the soft, spongey, and chewy texture of this ball-shaped Danish pancake - both sweet and savory were divine. There are many more options to write about, but these two were majestic.
Spokanites showed up in droves for Pig Out in The Park 2015, marking its 36th year and boasting 45 food booths and 3 live music stages. My family was part of the hungry herd that visited this food-wonderful event. We bee-lined for the flame roasted corn on the cob and while happily munching happened to meet up with some friends. Even though it rained a few buckets, Spokanites stood in line for foot-long corn dogs, funnel cakes, deep-fried Oreos, gyros, dim sum, and many other Pig-Out foods. After the corn, we grabbed some Thai food, then a foot-long corn dog, and finished our foray with a funnel cake doused in powdered sugar. We enjoyed watching a family work together pouring batter in 440-degree oil, then shaking on the powdered sugar. Pig Out runs September 2 - 7.
