West Side Nut Club's Fall Festival

It's that time of year again: Evansville's West Side Nut Club's Fall Festival. It's known for being the "2nd largest street fair" in the country or something like that, but it goes along with the fact that Evansville has been recognized as being the most overweight city in the country in that you can get deep fried ANYTHING at this fest.

You can also get just about any kind of weird food you could imagine: brain sandwiches, pickle juice slushies, kangaroo, alligator on a stick, fried kool-aid... you name it. I tend to take the safe route, though last year I did make a brief attempt at a sucker with a scorpion inside. Pretty sure it got stuck in my hair or something like that before I actually got to the scorpion, but I'm sure I would have wussed out anyways.

Deep fried cookie dough... yum!

Twisted Tea for the girls and beer for the boys

Fried green beans

Chicken fried bacon

"Deep fried thin mints"... though it seemed more like a thin mint trapped inside a donut ball.

The best policy is really to go with a group of people and just try little samples of everything everyone gets. I wasn't feeling it as much this year and didn't get too wild or eat all that much, because all the "fried" really gets to you after a while. Definitely worth checking out if you're ever bored the first week of October and within easy travel distance... or if you're someone who is really attracted to the idea of eating Turkey Testicles or a Brain on a bun. *gag*

Read more about the Fall Festival in posts from last year here or here.
