See Y'all on the Flipside!

Hey y'all! I'm off to Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. It's a four-day stinky hippie fest with music from Tori Amos, Jay-Z, Tenacious D, Les Claypool, Rise Against, the Dropkick Murphys, Against Me, Weezer, you name it. Oh, and there's a comedy tent with Margaret Cho and Conan O'Brian!

The best part? I'm shooting the event for the newspaper I work for (the Memphis Flyer), so I'll be close and personal in the pit near the stage.

Soooo ... I won't be posting for a few days. I'm sure I'll have tons of vegan food photos (and other crazy stuff) to share when I return. Until then, much love homies! I'll leave you guys with this adorable picture of the hugging carrots I picked up at the Memphis Farmers Market last week.

Almost too cute to eat, huh? Um, but I ate 'em anyway.

Oh! Who knew that carrots could be so cute?! Love it!
On a side note, I really miss Conan since he's been off the air. He was my favorite late night talk show host. I hope you get to spend some time laughing to his punchlines while you're there! Have fun! :)

Jess of Midwest Vegan said...

Hippie fests are my favorite, though I've never been to one as big as Bonnaroo... yet!

There's a Burning Man in my future as well... someday! Lol.

Spooning carrots! Love it!

Enjoy Bonnaroo, lady! Festivals are always nice in that they are veg and vegan friendly, not to mention all the great music, friend times, and festivities.

I'd go this year for Tori alone. She's so incredible.

I love the hugging carrots, you brutal vegan, you! I saw a photo of Conan at Bonnaroo and I thought of you. Hope you're having fun!

Rachwins said...

That festival sounds amazing! Probably waaay too late now, but if you get a chance, check out Mumford and Sons. Awesome-o.

Anyway, I think your blog is rad, I only just found it. I'm loving deep south cooking at the moment, and can't wait to work my way through the back catalogue of ideas!

We're coming over to America in October, I'm going to eat as much of it as I can!

Check out the band Dawes. They are one of the smaller bands there, but they are sooo worth it. Great music and great performers!
