The Tennessee Valley Fair starts on Friday and I can hardly wait. They have invited me to be one of the judges for a Concessionaire Food Contest. We will select the Best Corn Dog, Best Deep Fried, Best Crazy Fair Food, Best Funnel Cake, Best Americana, Best Drink, Best Sweet Treat, Best International, and Best Apple (Candied or Caramel). I hope to get some video for a show called “Frank & Quirky” that has been in the planning stages for a while.
As much fun as that will be, I am even more excited about performing at the Fair with Einstein Simplified. I started lobbying the Fair organizers about a year ago. They agreed to put us in the Pepsi Community Tent on Friday, September 14 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Last week, I used a contest widget called Rafflecopter to give away tickets to see Einstein Simplified during our regular Tuesday gigs at Side Splitters. The success of the contest prompted me to ask the Tennessee Valley Fair to provide tickets for another giveaway. Two winners will each receive a family-four pack of Fair tickets that can be used to see Einstein Simplified on Friday the 14th. The winners will have to figure out a way to meet me on the 12th or 13th to pick up the tickets.
