Speaking of food, this Globe and Mail blurb made me giggle. We're such food snobs in Victoria that our festival's food lineup is almost as hotly anticipated as the music!
"In Victoria this September, the Rifflandia Festival, which is ostensibly built around top bands like The Flaming Lips and Sloan, will also feature a mobile brick pizza oven, a southern barbecue “Pigmobile,” a charcuterie vendor, a Polish delicatessen truck that sells grilled cheese sandwiches stuffed with pierogies and a company that does Central American paletas – frozen, crazy-flavoured fruit pops. The festival is going so far as to announce its food lineup one month ahead of time in a live radio event. “Not only do you know in advance what bands you’re going to see at what time, but you know what food you’re going to be eating,” said Nick Blasko, the festival’s director."
Hey! So what did everyone think of the venue/campground food options this year? I thought the quality inside the venue was slightly improved, and had more options, but HOT DAMN if I didn't eat a shitload of Spicy Pie in the campground. Anyone else get down on some of that stuff?? Just like I remembered it from Coachella. I also ate quite a few campground breakfast burritos as well. Thanks for hooking me up with that first one, Gibbons. I was starving and cashless that first day.
Campground breakfast burrito was bullshit. It would take at least 5 of them to constitute a meal. The chicken burrito inside, however, was fucking incredible. It tasted exactly like Taco Time, except twice the size. I spent the majority of Jack White's set thinking about it. Now that I think about it (again), that burrito was the Saturday headliner for me, and directly responsible for me not giving a shit about Hotel Yorba.
I'm not really a hot wing guy, but I definitely see your point there. Frank's definitely tastes like a wing sauce. At least now I know what to use it for now. Mostly, I am just not fond of the vinegary stuff. That is why I don't like Tabasco.

Tabasco is something that I've only recently learned to love. One of my earliest bad memories is sampling some Tabasco from my parents condiment stash and being absolutely traumatized by it. I was never really the biggest wing guy either, but once Buffalo Wild Wings arrived in my area my entire world changed. If I could live off of sushi, wings, and burritos I would be a happy man.
