The Big E

October 07, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
Went with friends to West Springfield, Massachusettes to "The Big E".

What is the Big E? The largest fair in the Northeast that ran from Sept 14- Sept 30. It incorporates the 6 northeast states showcasing everything from food, drinks, crafts, to livestock and just about every "As seen on tv" item ever imagined.... and some that should have never been conceived. The idea is to go thru a row of houses similiar to a college frat house row filled with stands selling beer, wine, desserts, food and crafts. And an unusual amount of flannel and Maple syrup mixed into ice cream w/bacon (which was not too bad!!!!)

Conn.- Not much food or drink to sample but did buy a bunch of Pez......

Rhode Island- Scallop Fritters!!!!! Burned fingers & tongue...... more dough then scallop but every so often you get a nice chunk that tasted great.

AM-1617-23y-1 Maine- Lobster Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!  Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!!!!!

Vermont- Organic sausage pizza.....Mmmmmmmm, Good stuff. Enjoyed with an awesome Otter Creek Black IPA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Hampshire- FRESH Corn on the cob.... enough said!!!

Mass.- Looked around but didn't sample.....
