Look, it's State Fair time. And if you're like me, you've only got one food-related mission on your mind this week: eating a bunch of weird Fair food. Fried Oreos, fried candy bars, fried donut burgers, fried beer— whatever you want, the friendly carnies at the Fair will happily dunk it into a bucket of boiling fat and batter and make it 10 times more delicious and 20 times more likely to provoke a major heart attack, all in the name of consumerist gluttony. It's a magical time of year, and you can hardly call yourself a New Mexican if you don't risk acid reflux celebrating our state. Admission to the State Fair is $10 for adults and $7 for children and seniors. Fair runs through Sunday, Sept. 22.
