Tulsa Pastry Competition

Some of the chefs and students are making arrangements now to go to the National Pastry Competition which will be held at a fair (apparently one of the nation's biggest) in Tulsa, OK. I just reserved my seat in one of the chefs cars, an Escalade :), and requested the time off from work. We'll leave before noon on Friday, Sept. 26th, attend the entire fair on the 27th and 28th, then head back early on Monday, Sept. 29th. Some of the others are going to go Friday night and come back Sunday so they don't have to take any time off but that just sounds like it would be stretching things too thin and I'd like to be rested and enjoy the entire fair. Several of the students and the chefs go every year (the baking/pastry chef, Chef Heidi, competes every year) and say it's a great time, whether you're into baking or not. The trip will only set me back $200 or less for everything including gas, hotel room, entrance to the fair, and food. I could go out drinking and eating at nice restaurants with some of the others but I don't really want to spend the money. We'll see how well my will holds...
