Every year is pretty much the same as the last. Still we keep returning. Is it the pretty lights or the abundance of food? I've been twice this summer, taking advantage of the new $5 after five policy. Saw a couple of good shows and ate a whole bunch. Where else can you get veggie burgers, tabouli, bubble tea and cabbage rolls all under the same roof? Mostly though, as every year, we just marvelled at the glory and tawdriness that is the midway at night.
