The goetta ring toss
After the movie, a group of fellas trudged through the intense heat of the night to check out the mini Goettafest in Newport, KY. Not familiar with goetta? It’s meat and oats rolled up like sausage and you’ll find its a staple of Cincinnati area cuisine—particularly greasy spoons. Wikipedia has a great history of it. I quite prefer the vegetarian version.
So there were rides, and vendors selling geotta ruebens, goetta balls, geotta pizza, geotta burritos, geotta hoagies, goetta pancakes, goetta fudge brownies… I could go on but I have to mention the goetta vending machine.
Here’s a handful of really dark photos poorly capturing the mayhem.
