i worked at Fog Cutter booth making them a few years ago, but damn if I can remember because I drank a few of the mistakes. I think Grenadine, Midori, Rum, Tequila and selzer water?

PS: I wish the FFOG would bring back the classic cars. They were a big draw and brought a lot more people from all over Northern California. I know they tok up valuable parking but for each $10 parking spot they drew in $100's of dollars more in business and they made the parade even better.

Not to be a Debbie Downer - but... Must we have the same food options year after year, how about trying something new? Maybe bring in a food truck or 2 to shake things up. And why we're on the subject, why do the Fog Cutter glasses get smaller and smaller each year - last year's were a total joke. I'm literally expecting shot glasses this year. Rant over, can't wait for this year's event

I agree completely with the wish for some new food choices. Same ol same ol. I also agree on the fog cutter glasses. I have stopped buying them just for this reason.
