We were born on the wrong side of the tracks in Yahoo, Texas, and have spent every subsequent day trying to live it down. We drink wine, appreciate art, have offspring who say please and thank you, and drive a girlie-man hybrid car to help the environment. For 49 weeks a year, were golden. Then the Arizona Exposition & State Fair comes back around, and we start talkin shit like dang and yall and scratchin our balls a lot.
Dang, yall, why fight it? Weve all got a little trash in the compactor, so let your genetic detritus shine forth daily (ceptin Mondays) through November 8 at the Fairgrounds. This weeks white-trash highlights include:
The Black Crowes at The Vet, tonight at 7.
Figure 8 Racing, 7 nightly Friday through Sunday.
Village Inn Pie Eating Contest, 1 p.m. Saturday.
NWA Lucha Libre Wrestling Showcase, 5 p.m. Sunday.
Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show, daily.
And dont forget the Fair food; this years extreme vittles include chocolate-covered bacon, grasshoppers on a stick, and deep-fried tiramisu.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 22. Continues through Oct. 28, 2009
