Where's the MoveOn.org petition to get county fairs to improve food fare once and for all? Although corn dogs and funnel cakes still give us the warm and fuzzies, we've also trapped ourselves into eating sad fried goods paired with lukewarm, gristly cheesesteak amid the buzzing rides, crowds, and too-cute animals. Until the petition of our summer food dreams comes to fruition, we'll consider getting our homey country grub fix via an outing on Sunday, June 30 to the County Fair Conductive Education Center of San Francisco (CECSF) fundraising shindig at Pizzaiolo in Oakland.
