Garlic Festival


Last Saturday we went to the garlic festival in Gilroy. I guess they grow a lot of garlic there. The bad thing is - it's CON AGRA that funds most of the growing. They are relentless as a corporate bull. They have done good things for the environment as a large company, but have poisoned the American people... so I'm not sure whether to buy them or boycott them. More research is necessary indeed. Well, this wasn't meant to be a bitch session, just a "Hey we did something this weekend." I was just disappointed to see their banner everywhere at the festival. I guess the entrance fees all go to charities, so I guess they're not ALL bad.

Anyways... It was interesting. We had fun. We had GARLIC ICE CREAM! It was awesome. Sweet and tasty with a garlic burn right after - like you were chewing on a clove of garlic right there!

Then we called Kaan and went to downtown Sunnyvale for a couple beers and some fish & chips. We went to Scruffy Murphy's.

Unfortunately, when it comes down to profit and greed, no corporation that size is going to be clean (it's subjective, of course). Some people even argue the fact that Whole Foods import some of its organic foods from South America is bad because that translates into fuel consumption... plus organic vegetation often is linked to deforestation!

Just playing devil's advocate here...
