We've had a whole cored pineapple set in vodka and chilled overnight-Lots of happy people with this one-especially when it's hot out.

If by 'inject' you mean drink, and by 'fruit' you mean myself then yes, I do inject fruit with alcohol.

I've always macerated the fruit, but never injected it. That might be something to experiment with...

Went to the first Farm Aid concert back in 1985. They wouldn't let you bring in anything but a bag lunch, forcing you to buy anything extra from the overpriced food and drink hawkers there.

I went with two farmer friends, who conveniently had some large syringes that they used to inject cattle with. We injected several liter bottles of 7Up with vodka and had a wonderful time.

BTW, vodka-injected watermelon left to marinate for awhile and then served in cubes grated with freshly cracked black pepper is divine.

Bug, we are friends with a couple that have been to every single Farm Aid, and they also did the watermelon thing at the first one in Champaign, Il. HB and I have been to a few with them, and it was a great time, except for the one in South Carolina where we froze our buns off. Our friend died in January, as a result of contact with Agent Orange in Viet Nam. I don't know if his wife will continue the tradition or not, but I wouldn't be surprised if she did.

Connie, I haven't been to any of them (I think) since the first one in Champaign, but it still holds good memories for me.

I was still quite a nut for Willie N back then, so seeing him again was great. He used to play at the Illinois State Fair a lot back in those days, so I was used to seeing him fairly often but never got tired of Whiskey River, etc.

BB King, the Beach Boys, Carole King, and surprisingly - Glen Campbell - all put on great performances.

John Mellencamp wearing his old high school FFA jacket.

Neil Young not sounding so whiny in a live concert.
