Food Network stars and restauranteurs Pat and Gina Neely talked about slow cooking and keeping the spice in marriage relationships during their State Fair appearance yesterday. They recently opened a restaurant in New York City called Neelys BBQ Parlor.
Sometimes the best entertainment at the New York State Fair is free.
From the first year I covered the Fair, I’ve enjoyed shows by juggler, acrobat, magician and street performer Michael Hilby.
The self-proclaimed skinny German juggles fire, balls, and even carries a chainsaw.
Hilby always draws a crowd and always has a flair for the unordinary, punctuated with a comedian’s timing.
Hilby’s act, lasting about an hour, is worth one or two Grandstand performances (for about $50 dollars less). He reminds me of an essay from The Big Moo that says, there are three rules of life: 1) Your Attitude is Your Life; 2) Maximize Your Options; and 3) Don’t Let Seeds Stop You from Enjoying the Watermelon.
