Lollapalooza Eats

Allow me to slowly rock back and forth on my lawn chair as I reminisce about outdoor concert food, and how much it sucked in the olden days--commercial food service-grade nachos and hot dogs sold for ten times their actual value to a throng of kids without access to debit cards. It was a heady time.

lollalogo.jpgThings are better now, as exhibited by the "Chow Town" food court and farmers market (which I imagine will be just as pricey as an actual farmers market these days) at this weekend's Lollapalooza.

If you're of the root beer persuasion, seek out Gale Gand's inspired version of the drink, which will be sold at the festival in float form in a collaboration with Edzo's. It will be worth the price of admission alone, and make you the envy of every non-attendee (trust me).
