The afternoon started off with another trip to the Big E. The weather was perfect for sitting outside with friends, enjoying a nice micro brew.
After that, it was time for some supper so we headed off to find some non-fried food. Not many choices in that category except for the fare over at the Sam Adams Beer Garden. Oh well, if we must.
After eating and continuing to explore the fair, it was time for a little pick me up. We ran into a group of friends who were kind enough to point us in the right direction. And yes, fried Oreos were just the ticket:
Then time for a trip down the giant slide:
As luck would then have it, while checking out the hot tubs, we were fortunate to hook up with another group of our buddies. Seems the thing to do here in Western Mass on a Friday night is go to the Big E. And what do friends do when they all meet up at the fair? Why we all head on over to the Martini Bar!
No good can come of going to the Martini Bar on a Friday night at the Big E. I should know that. By the time we finished there things were closing up for the evening. And since I had hot tubs stuck in my head from a few hours previously, heading over to Buddies #2 house to sit in their hot tub seemed like just the thing I needed.
One small problem - no bathing suit. Which, after a couple of pomegranate martinis turns out really not to be a problem at all.
Friends, fried Oreos, martinis, and naked hot-tubbing. It's just another typical fall day in the Pioneer Valley.
