One-two punch: fried butter & burgers
You helped the Orange County Fair break attendance records -- 1.15 million people tromped through the fairgrounds. And you ate more than 8,000 deep-fried butter treats. (Well, not you personally, but you know what I mean.) Read more fair highlights at L.A. Now, and find out if anyone managed to eat a jumbo funnel cake all alone.
You also helped upend the Southern California burger world as we know it: Fast Food Maven reports a shocker in Zagat's new fast-food restaurant ratings: where champ In-N-Out was beaten out by newcomer (to the L.A. area) Five Guys.
