Sorta like Octoberfest. Only in August. And instead of beer, um, tofu.

Last weekend Spooney and I went to the Los Angeles Tofu Festival.
I am not making that up.



See? Tofu Festival.



It has to be real. They have t-shirts! Adorable Japanese-inspired cutsey girlie-art t-shirts!



Here's one admission stamp you'll want to keep on your hand for a few days. Gives you mad street cred, dog.



Mostly, when at the LA Tofu Fest, you eat tofu.



Lots of tofu.



Some more tofu.
Oh, and they do try to sell you miscellaneous festival crap too, of course.


If I was an asian chick, you KNOW I'd being rockin' this shirt.



More tofu eating.



And some more.



Oh, some tofu cheesecake. And unlike every other tofu cheesecake I've had in my life, it was actually pretty good. You can see Spooney's digging it.



It's amazing how walking around in the 95 degree heat can really work up your appetite for tofu. No, really.



You know what doesn't taste good in 95 degree heat?
TOFU MARGARITA.



Fortunately, there's plenty of Thai beer to take the taste away.



As if eating tofu all afternoon weren't emasculating enough, Spooney was so dehydrated that he drank some French water "for women." I warned him that there might be some kind of female hormones in there, but he was too thirsty to care.

Then when he got home, he started watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants on cable.

Coincidence? I think not.

Well at least they had the good sense to serve beer!

That looks like another really great day with you and Spooney!

Fun, fun, fun pictures.

Tofu cheesecake. Hmmm. I make a sinful pumpkin cheesecake. I tried making it with no-fat cream cheese and no fat sour cream, but it was like plastic.

Maybe tofu was the answer.

Fun post!

We all like the sistah hood movie around here, too! Go Spooney.

I want to be Asian, just so I can wear that shirt.

I'd even drink a tofu margarita so I could be Asian for just one day and wear that shirt!

Spooney was still trying to wash the taste of Scientology out of his mouth!

You crazy hippies with your tofu and your "healthy living".

I'll bet deep down, everyone there was craving a bacon cheeseburger.

More blogs should be devoted to pictures of people eating. Eating tofu in particular.

"healthy living"?
Chris, if you saw how much we drink & smoke on a weekend, you'd take that back.

I never crave any kind of red meat. The thought of it makes me sick. I do crave fried chicken once in a while though.

I'd be down with some tofu pad thai. As a meat eater, I don't go around hatin' on the curd. But I'd draw the line at a tofurita. For some reason I just picture the reject bucket at a sperm bank donation center.

Why in the WORLD would you add tofu to a margarita?

And I hope Spooney feels nice and empowered now that he's cozied up to the sisterhood.
