Title: Gilroy Garlic Festival Gathering! July 23~25
Post by: Jerry on June 02, 2010, 10:35:47 AM
Pretty self explanatory:

http://www.gilroygarlicfestival.com/

Vote for which day works for you best! We'll go by majority rule : Friday or  Saturday or  Sunday

In previous years, I've gone with roommates, Fellow Fanime staff, Rovers, and whoever else I may run into from or around that area.

Heck, I'll even go in my Russell Cosplay just for giggles and more photo ops- :P

Most Likely we could meet up at my place [east side san jose] and then head down via carpool-

for the most part, we'll just check out the food [duh], maybe check out a live event or two, play some carnival games, try to stay sober in the wine tasting tent, and have a nice dinner somewhere on the way back or in san jose.

Anyone else interested? :D

I'm interested and could offer my car, if it comes down to it. Just letting you know from past experiences that traffic would be **** on 101 so we'd better leave SJ early.

Couple ideas up in the air- 

Board gaming Gathering
T-shirt art making gathering
Rock band days/night marathons
Cooking/baking/ BBQ gathering
"Hack and slash" my backyard gathering...

course I have to take care of some personal construction at my home first... so it wont be until AT LEAST mid July before I plan anything new....



@ PsychoGarden - where in Cali do you live? Pm me and I'm might organize either a carpool, or meet up at my home and maybe that way you can get a ride if you live somewhere around or between  San Jose and Gilroy. Pm me if you still thinking about going!

Adventure is out there! :D

Course I know where Oakridge is... cant be a junior wilderness explorer and not know where most things in San Jose is.

We've had a few mini hang outs at the mall, or im even thinking about catching Toy story 3 either there or at the Eastridge mall.

maybe we'll cross paths before the Gilroy Garlic festival... who knows. :P

We can also meetup at Sonic, since it's Gilroy.

Drove by Sonic every time I come down to Gilroy, and I'm surprise I never had any.

I would actually advise against meeting up at the Sonic because the Festival and this Sonic in particular are on completely different sides of town.

I would think it easier meeting at the fair itself. and looking for the BIG GARLIC thats on fire. as a meeting point. Assuming people are still wanting to meet up for this event.

*ahem*  Garlic Ice Cream isn't bad at all.  You barely taste the Garlic.  I remember eating this in 2008 twice.  :)

That's the point of the festival: gahhh-lic! BAM!  Garlic ice cream though it sounds hideous, it's not what you think. It's more vanilla sweet than anything, plus a faint aftertaste, but not strong garlicy.


BTW, "BIG GARLIC that's on fire" ? What's that?

Gavlin seems like it would be a reasonable meet up spot, if the festival itself is unacceptable =P

Courtesy bump! Any new information on this gathering and stuff? I'd still like to go, Saturday preferred.

Due to way too many conflicting schedules [ to complex of a social life i suppose :P ]

I will not be going this year.

My girlfriend pulled the " girlfriend needs attention card " this weekend, and she didnt want to deal with the crowds and the heat in gilroy this weekend.

Looks like I'll be going to a few birthday bbq's instead and nerding out while watching the TV coverage of Comic Con 10.

For everyone else who's going have fun! and please post your pictures and adventures here afterwards!

I want pictures of garlic ice cream and Garlic Fries :D
[not together of course, but i wouldnt put it past you guys]
