@Max....Well I guess that since, to my horror and consternation, the Gilroy Garlic Festival is a month away from EELive 2015, that will have to be Plan B......  For you to like it they would have to serve garlic flavoured bacon and beer??  (Not garlic flavoured beer....just the bacon....)

Antedeluvian - "sardines and condensed milk"

That sounds positively disgusting. Fortunately, I haven't experienced it. However, I have been forced to consume condensed milk and canned oysters. I'm sure it's no less stomach churning.

@David: ...given that my wife will not let me come to the US for a whole month, I have a serious choice to make...

Don't do anything rash -- you've been married for a long time -- having your wife locked up in a mental health facility may not be the best solution in the long run.

@David: You sound like a man after my own heart, sir!

If you are ever in San Francisco, there's a really good restaurant called The Stinking Rose that features garlic in every dish (there's a sign on the door saying "No Vampires Allowed)

@David: ...they apparently give out free garlic ice-cream cones...

There's a reason they give them away for free... LOL

@David: Somewhere in the States - I think in Texas - they have a garlic festival.

It's actually in California

@David: Ptcha sounds like brawn, but made from the other end of the animal.

Now, I must admit that I do like brawn -- I first had it as a boy scout on a scout camping holiday -- but I prefer not to think about what's in it when I'm eating it (much like when I eat Haggis).

@SandorD: It's actually pretty delicious.

I still think I'll pass -- I'm not over-keen on jellied meats -- not since <cue foreboding music> the incident...

@Savid: ...i think I was their main customer but it wsn't enough...

If only Antedeluvian and I had been there to back you up, they could have expanded the store! :-)
