Time to double up on the Lipitor because the State Fair of Texas and its fry-a-palooza starts Friday, Sept. 24.
If you bring an unopened 20-oz. Coca-Cola product on opening day, admission is $4. The Cokes will be donated to the North Texas Food Bank. (By the way, you can help the food bank win a truckload of food from Kroger. And when you get home from the fair, you might want to try the food-stamp challenge.)
