Ann Arbor Art Fair anticipation and our menu

The weather is getting warmer and that can only mean one thing. The Ann Arbor Art Fair is nearly upon us! There will be lots of fun things happening down at Mark's Carts. We will have music, including our friends Jason Magee and Erik Santos of 16 More Miles. They performed once already for our Friday Night Live series and, as always, it was great! If you missed that performance you can catch them playing here during art fair along with a bunch of. Other great musicians.
There also will be youth art displayed and sold. Our daughter, Kiki, will be selling her animal paintings. Her intention is to donate a portion of her proceeds to the Humane Society of Huron Valley where our dog, Maynard, came from.
For art fair we'll be cooking up some great stuff. We've already rolled out our chicken paella. Jay is marinating the chicken in garlic and herbs. Yum! We'll also be throwing in some fresh local vegetables.
We'll also have our staples, chorizo corn dogs and our decadent and delicious duck fries, featuring crispy hand-cut potato, chorizo duck gravy and blue cheese. We have been around these parts for a good number of years and are well aware of how hot art fair days can get. Our watermelon gazpacho with cucumber, basil and local goat cheese made by our friends at Four Corners Creamery in is just the blast of refreshment needed after a day of taking in all the wonderful art coming to town. Our Spanish-style potato salad made with a sherry vinaigrette also is refreshing. Can't forget our other menu favorite, the lamb burger with pear mustarda and blue cheese. Should make for a fabulous time. We look forward to seeing you down at the cart. We'll post art fair deals and music schedules soon.
