The North Carolina State Fair is going strong in nearby Raleigh and ends the day after the wedding. We went a few years ago and shared a deep-fried Oreo (above right) and have been recovering ever since. Imagine a warm, melty Oreo encased in a churros-funnel-cake-pancake-fusion-dough. Dangerously delicious and artery-clogging. They also serve chocolate-covered bacon, which didn’t tickle Grisha’s fancy – but if that’s your thing, we’d recommend going to a Southern Season and getting Mo’s Chocolate Bacon Bar by Vosges, my favorite chocolate company. Grisha took me to the Vosges headquarters on a road-trip to Chicago and thought it was absurdly pretentious (consider yourself warned).
