Dear Barnesville Potatoe Days,

A friend told me all about Barnesville Potatoe Days, and it sounds quite exciting, but I had no idea Minnesota was famous for potatoes. I always thought that was Idaho, so I looked on a map and Barnesville isn’t anywhere near Idaho!

Regardless, if my friend can be believed Potatoe Days sounds amazing. I mean where else can you get Norwegian lefse, German potato pancakes, and French fries? (Talk about multiculturalism!) All you would need after a meal like this is a nice glass of icy potatoe vodka to wash it all down! This is the reason I am writing. Barnesville is a long ways for me to go, and if there’s no potatoe vodka I am not sure I want to make the trip.

I tried going to your website to find out if you served potatoe vodka, but you don’t seem to have a website. You really should consider registering www.potatoedays.com to promote Barnesville Potatoe Days. I’m sure it would be a great success.

And if you don’t have potatoe vodka you should really consider it this as well! I’m sure it would be quite the draw and people as far away as Idaho might come.

Let me know about the potatoe vodka. In the end it’s not a show stopper, since I can always bring my own.

Dear Christopher:

Thank you for your letter regarding Potato Vodka. The Potato Days Festival has been presented with serving Potato Vodka in the past. However, due to City of Barnesville Ordinances were are unable to have a vendor serve the vodka.

Than you for your interest in our Festival. We have approximately 17,000 people come to our community for the events and all have a great time. Barnesville is in an area rich with potato history even though we are no where near Idaho!

if you are ever able to visit us during the festival we would love to have you join us!
