This morning, Chris had the genius idea of going to the Italian Feast in Verplank. It goes on for a few nights in July and is amazing in that it packs a lot into a little teeny fair. We didn’t go last summer, but we went in 2012 — this year, I was smart enough to not win 5 goldfish (short version: that did not go well) and we wisely spent our money on plastic cups of wine and zeppolis. It was a lovely summer night in the suburbs and though I have heartburn as I type this, it was totally worth it.
Did you know about Our Lady of Mount Carmel? I didn’t, but I love that there is a fair for her right near my house! Any excuse to have a plastic cup of wine and fried things on a beautiful summer night is fine by me.
