Mmm. Do I Detect Corn Dog Notes in This Pinot?

Fried peach with your Bellini? Oh hayl yeah.
​Ho. Lee. Fried garnishes for your cocktails. Christi Erpillo, the supreme mega fried badass who brought us those glorious, award-winning fried peaches in 2009, just gave every wine-box-chugging lady American the only thing she's ever wanted at the fair: wine plus fried.

The photo of these beverages doesn't do the ideas justice. Let me explain to you bev for bev what Erpillo's busting out this year at the fair:

Back row: (left to right)

Bellini with fried peach garnish. (Remember, that's an award-winning fried peach, not just some no-name fried peach.)

Texas Twister (lemonade, pinot grigio Champagne, Sprite) with fried mini corn dog.

Bloody Mary with fried green beans. (Uh, hell-to-the-yes, please.)

Front row:

Chocolais (that's chocolate wine, beetches) with fried brownie bite.

Mimosa with fried bananas Foster bite.

Are these frocktails the official sponsor of Most Eligible Dallas? They're perfectly Texas trailer chic. The only way they could be more Dallas is if Erpillo offered a free pedicure with purchase. I predict that these things will be fried booze crack for the Dallas MILF set. Congrats on being awesome, Erpillo. This not-so-fried fried booze is all kinds of win. Fried cheers.

Just a question (me raising my hand!)?  Who goes to the Fair anymore?  I can think of 100 ways to burn $300.00.  Rent a boat on Beavers Bend.  Go to the JW. Go to Colorado.  Hike in the Ozarks.  300 bucks and all you get is a stuffed animal that is off color, that the eyes fall off of?  Besides, the MLB playoffs are on....and it's too danged hot in downtown Dallas. Gun play?  No thanks!

I go to the fair every year first day and usually several days thereafter.

BTW, Margie is my nana's name.  Then we have aunt Easter, aunt Florence, aunt Agatha, and my fave-Nana Mildred.  I'd go to the fair, but my Rascal doesn't take the sharp turns required at the fair. hey guess what?  My Rascal has a drink holder.....and it goes 3.5 mph.I tok it to the Grand Canyon last year; just like in the commercial.  Also, it's ideal for whiffleball, and hunting.  I bagged  a 500 pound pig last year and drug it home; behind.

At The Dock restaurant. (It's by the Embarcadero building and you'll know you're there when you see me in line in front of you.)
