I went to two very different neighborhood-festivals this weekend. The first was across the street from my apartment - a very family oriented affair with rides, food, a little beer garden and a petting zoo. Oddly enough, there was some kind of spam-truck too. But that was about the weirdest part in my quiet little LA suburb.
The second street fair was Hollywood(ish)'s Sunset Junction Street Festival. There were 3 stages for live music, tons of yummy street-food vendors; but in contrast to my local fair, there was the whole gamut of STD testing booths (AIDS, hepatitis, you name it...) plus more shirtless men than I have ever seen in my whole life - and not just ever at one time, but even when you add them all up... and I used to play water polo. See what I mean...?
