Who doesn't love love food you can use to practice your light saber skills?
Let's gather with lots of other asparagus spear fans to feast all day on dishes honoring this amazing vegetable!
I'm definitely visiting the Spear-It’s of the Valley Pavilion for Specialty Beverages. Last time I was there I got an aspararita in a margarita glass with a cactus stem!
Ever entered an eating contest? I would love to see the Geek Club represented in the Deep-Fried Asparagus Eating Competition! Any Volunteers? Noon on Saturday.
On Saturday the featured bands are:
Great White (1:00 pm) and Night Ranger (4:30 pm)
And what pairs perfectly with asparagus? That's right! Sea Lions!
...yeah, I didn't understand it either but they've got 'em!
Sea Lion Encounter - Daily - 12 pm, 2 pm, 4 pm - Inside Asparazone
It takes about 90 minutes to get there from Sunnyvale. I can carry 3 passengers in my convertible (top down if it's a beautiful day!). The festival goes until 7pm but we might be done before that if we're done seeing everything.
