I had my first taste of turkey leg at Michigan Renaissance Faire. They said that you have never really been at the Renaissance Faire if you have not had this. Whoever said that is right and truly knows how perfect this turkey leg is. The festive smokey scent seems to follow us the entire day. Hubby laughed at how small my face looked next to the meat which I agree.

In every corner at the faire, someone is shouting “pickles”. I was not a fan of pickles until this day that the faire made me.

There are no rules really, but the proper drinking etiquette at the faire is the use of horns as your drinking glasses. That is why you see nearly everyone tagging a horn with them, though they make a good aesthetic use, they are tagged for a reason.

There are hundreds and hundres of food varities at the faire to choose from at a fairly good rate. But dining at the Blackstone Castle Cafe is a real royal treat. The food is great and the ambiance is classic. If you cannot appreciate the castle’s beauty with a harp playing while you dine, then my friend, there is something wrong with you :)
