Bakersfield, California, USA. Last weekend they held one at Gure Euskal Etxea in San Francisco with Great results. Many Basque clubs around the world have had to get imaginative and try new ways to make money with the Coronavirus impeding their usual dinners and festivals whose proceeds they rely on. The Kern County Basque Club in Bakersfield has organized a food sale for September 26th in this year where they had to cancel their picnic and were also unable to participate in the popular Kern County Fair, losing an important part of their usual annual income. Today, Friday is the last day to order for the “Fair Food Drive-Thru.” You can order online, to pick up at the clubhouse from your car on Saturday, September 26th.
They event is called “Fair Food Drive-Thru” with all proceeds making up a part of the income the club has lost this summer. Anyone participating will be able to compensate in some way for not having been able to taste these flavors in August at the aforementioned Basque stand at the Kern County Fair, where for example the lamb sandwich is a true “best-seller.” On this special occasion, they have set a goal of selling 250 of them.
The menu includes sandwiches wit lamb, lukainka, and tongue; along with beans, tomatoes and salsa, and red or white wine. Here is the order form that includes the pricing. You can order here as well as make a donation to the Euskal Etxea. Come on join in! If you don’t live in the area, you can still donate to help support the Basque club.
