Last weekend Cristy and I “reunited” at our annual Gilroy Garlic Festival meet-up, this was our second year attending the event.

Here I am sharing our foodie adventure and our quest for Deep Fried Garlic Cloves.

It all started with ice-cold Sangria:

In case you are wondering, no it had no garlic.

Next we decided to get food… I got Garlic Fries and they were delicious!

Cristy got Deep Fried Artichokes, because we did not find Deep Fried Garlic Cloves which we tried last year and we loved! Artichokes were good, but we would prefer fried garlic cloves.

Another friend got delicious noodles. I would have never thought of buying noodles at a garlic festival, but thank goodness she did because they were AMAZING!

We also had garlic marinated shrimp, thanks to another friend who attended the festival.

After we ate all this food, which we shared with each, our next mission was to find blended Mimosa’s. Last year we tried these mimosa’s and they were deliciously refreshing in the mid 80’s weather.

If you happen to attend the festival in 2013 you can find Mimosa’s at the Wine Pavilion.

As I mentioned before, we were on a mission to find Deep Fried Garlic Cloves, but all we found were garlic braids.

Then we found the best place in the ENTIRE festival… We called it the “Club Rain,” nope not like in Las Vegas this is Gilroy, CA.

Here you have the Rain

This place was amazing! Why? The rain room is a misting room which definitely made the heat more tolerable. We seriously staying at “club rain” for about 45 minutes.

Anyway, this fun event eventually came to an end, we all went home. Here’s what I captured on my drive back to my Casa (home).

Isn’t this an amazing sunset, I think so.

Hope you enjoyed our foodie adventure, we sure did! If you decide to attend the festival in 2013 let us know… We may see you there.
