Ohhhhhhh Outside Lands, you've stole our hearts (and filled our tummies). My two younger sisters and I took on the three day festival with eager and empty stomachs, and oh what a satisfying weekend it was, in every way.
I will start off by saying Outside Lands is my kind of festival as they have a tent entirely dedicated to vino. Understandably so, as SF neighbors wine country . But seriously, one of my biggest concerns at concerts/festivals is the vino running dry, so in this regard Outside Lands FOR THE WIN(e).
Awesome. Filled with lots of wine, beer, egg rolls, bahn mi sammies, the beautiful vocals of George Ezra, reuniting with my younger sisters (though missing our eldest Queen), and finishing off the day with a [Mumford &] Sun-set (sorry couldn’t help myself with that pun). Post-festival we somehow had room for more and devored some dank courses at Chubby Noodle in the Marina (PSA: if you can’t finish all your pork fried rice, take it to go. The next morning heat it up in a skillet, throw a fried egg over it, BAM. So dope, can’t go wrong).
Front and center for Milky Chance, das all you need to know. But seriously, a great moment to be shared with the sisters. Lots more wine paired with a bomb chez plate from Cheese Lands, burratta truffle (heaven). Plenty more egg rolls, sweet potato tater tots, donut cheeseburgers. Blacked out from eating so many delicious “snacks”, worth the food coma for sure.
More food, more wine, more beer. The pizza was worth $7 a slice, I will confess. Fried noordes, three rounds. Waffle fries with ridiculous toppings, BEC’s around 5pm because we do what we want. Sam Smith and his newly slim physique could have joined us for a donut cheeseburger or two (just kidding Sam, you're killing it). Elton John, chilling in the grass taking in the last moments of the festivial. Hold me closer tiny dancer, my sunday scaries are in full swing as we top off our last glasses of wine and head back home.
Until next year Ranger Dave, we will be starving ourselves.
