Garlic Festival: It's On

Have you noticed that people rarely really take advantage of the neat crap there is to do in their area? As soon as we were certain that we were moving to Santa Cruz, Becky and I were intent on doing as much central coast neat crap as possible. Today, we fulfilled a major goal: we went to the Gilroy Garlic Festival (with our homies K and L) and had garlic ice cream. It was a triumph:



The ice cream itself was really good; kind of like vanilla with a nice strong garlic zing.

(Note to Tweak and Goat: Gilroy was everything we dreamed it would be. Whether it's buying a McMansion for 800,000 dollars in a piece of desert or getting some hot new prep gear at the outlet stores, Gilroy has it all.)

Also, please to be noting that I have updated my flickr page with some additional shots from the mighty voyage to the northwest.

Ever since that magical ride to Bezerkeley, I knew it was in my destiny. To Gilroy, I must away!

But does the Gilroy garlic festival also have an annual Garlic Princess, complete with an enormous, billowy garlic costume? Ha! I thought not.

Actually, it totally does. But we didn't see her. K+L told us that they had witnessed the pageant the year before and it filled them with trepidation.

Foo. I thought I had you there. I was going to boast of Ocean Park's garlicky mayhem. Sounds like it might be just about the same. Chocolate garlic, ice cream garlic, pillowy garlic princess, etc.

Actually, least year the princess and her court did not wear diaphanous gowns but bedazzled hot pink tube tops, jeans short skirts, flip flops, and tiaras :)
