The following are where we went these past two weekends.  Check out the slideshow for details on the snacks!  (A couple of galleries on this list aren't in the slideshow either because they had no snacks, or we didn't have any, or we forgot to take a picture, or something.  But most of them are on there.)  This Snack Report features two, count them, TWO separate events featuring snacks by Nick Jirasek of Guerilla Smiles.
