Anything deep fried will do.

Social Circle: Which festival food are you looking forward to the most?

Welcome to a weekly segment called "Social Circle." It's a group effort between readers, social networkers and the editors. Every Monday, we ask a question via Facebook and Twitter and then post the responses from our Facebook "likers" and Twitter followers in this column. Well-known Milwaukee movers and shakers will contribute, too.

It's festival season, which means, for most of us, it's also FEASTival season. So this week the Social Circle chimed in with which food item they are looking forward to chowing down the most. And at times, the word "food" was loosely defined as beer. Ah, Milwaukee.
