White Trash Food Festival

The ultimate Seafair antidote is in Skagit County.

For those of you who'd like to get as far away from hydroplanes and amateur drunks as possible this Sunday, Rexville Grocery in Mt. Vernon is holding its fifth annual "White Trash Food Festival" this Sunday from 1-5 p.m. Famed LaConner author Tom Robbins is expected to reprise his role as master of ceremonies (Aug. 3 update: Robbins e-mailed to say he has a scheduling conflict; see comments section for detail), crappy beer will be served, cheez whiz and spam will be tasted, "Freebird" will be covered, priority parking will be given to trailers, and original creations will be judged for trashiness at about 2 in the afternoon. And if anyone has, say, an old Firebird to loan carless Tacoma-based intern T.J. Tranchell so he can cover the event live, let us know where and when to pick it up in the comments section.
