@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: 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...

@Betajet....Thanks for that....I found the Garlic Festival is almost exactly a month later.   And given that my wife will not let me come to the US for a whole month, I have a serious choice to make...... :-((
