Of course Foodie was at the annual Taste of Fayette event this past Sunday (you didn’t see a guy in a fedora and sunglasses?). Numerous area restaurants all putting their cuisine out there for the people to try? Fuhgeddaboutit. It’s a no-brainer. Foodie simply must attend an event like that. And what does Foodie think of Taste of Fayette, (since he’s apparently still writing in third person and some weird tense)?

Young John finished sixth in a field of six.

“That stayed with me for awhile, and whenever opportunities to compete came up, I sort of blew them off,” Kerkeslager said. Read More»
