The Flush Picnic, July 27, 2011

The Flush Picnic: since the 1930s, the place to be on the last Wednesday of July.

For just seven bucks, manna I can believe in: fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, sliced tomatoes, cold beets and sweet gherkins, tangy cole slaw, iced tea, pie, conversation, good cheer, and a post-prandial waddle around the grounds of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Flush, Kansas.

Wait! Where are the gherkins?


  1. Oh, yum. I'm headed to the midwest in October, and with luck I'll find some of that same fine food. I'll have to count on cafes or the odd church supper, though. My kinfolk have gone all low-sodium and low-fat on me. Pfffft....

  2. Kinfolk who go low sodium are a step away from going vegan. You might need to intervene.
