This event is not worth it due to the cost of parking and admission at the fairgrounds. I went last year and some of the food is ok but the all in cost is not worth it. Find them on the street instead.

I'd only go if they had the corn dogs and deep fried peanut butter sticks they had at the Tea Party fest from last week.

The value is in the lively atmosphere in a beautiful setting. We have a great new band called acoustic therapy playing everything from hank williams to lady gaga. You can enjoy a glass of beer or wine while dining on some unique food, talking with friends and family, and generally enjoying the beautiful weather. Email for discount coupons

Mobile Gourmet - will you provide ample seating this time? There were only a couple of picnic benches before around the band area and basically no place to sit. Please consider this in your overall planning.

There were about 10 food trucks and only occasional lines, which moved quickly. The food was delicious!!! Service was good. Our guests bought extra to take home, and we did too. There were about a dozen patio tables with chairs and umbrellas, and quite a few picnic tables. We arrived about 4:45 and got a table, it may have been the last open table, but there were plenty of picnic tables available. Some people put out blankets to picnic, even though tables were available.
In the past, we took photos of the menus and talked about them at the table. This time, the menus were shorter and easier to read, so we walked to different trucks, looked over the menus, and told the others about the type of food. We got our food quickly.
The band played quietly enough that we could talk.
We are hoping they will be back at the fairgrounds or Concannon, but we may start having lunch at Clorox.
Clorox Daily Lunch Weekly @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm on Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri until September 1, 2012 Clorox Pleasanton Campus, 4900 Johnson Drive Pleasanton.

In Texas deep fried twinkies are suddenly the rage. As are deep fried tootsie rolls. What about the gormet folks? Yes?
