See You Next Year, State Fair

bigtexfire.jpgThe State Fair of Texas is done for another year, and it certainly went out in a blaze of glory. Besides the Friday morning fire seen 'round the world that put an end to 60 year old Dickies-wearing icon Big Tex, there was also an incident Friday evening that left fairgoers stranded atop the Stratosphere ride for some two hours. Saturday saw a visit from Man v. Food's Adam Richman on a quest for the "Tastiest Mess in Texas"; he ultimately declared the Fried Bacon Cinnamon Roll the victor. [Eater National/WFAA]
