I like to sneak in beer. By about the second beer I find a cup and get one of the venders to fill it with ice. Some will not but if you buy a fountain pop they will refill it with ice later on in the day if you ask nice. Simply place beer can in cup of ice and slowly spin the can while watching a show and before you know it, cold beer!
Also, bring a small umbrella. Good for rain, sun and hiding if needed.
She started dancing to that fine-fine music ahh, her life was saved by rock 'n' roll.
I agree that umbrellas can really be a nuisance, but when used respectfully they aren't a problem. I'm bringing one (a small, collapsible one) for the first time this year and plan to use it to lay under if the sun becomes too much. For rain, ponchos are more effective anyway. If you bring an umbrella don't be a dick and we won't have to take it from you.

I'm looking forward to the annual tradition of watching some dumb kid's tent sail off into the gorge because it wasn't staked down. It's hilarious -- some Krebstar dome tent flipping end over end in the wind, brief flashes of little-known geometric shapes appearing in the sky over the gorge before it plummets into the Columbia river... It's like the campground has to make an offering to the gorge before things get started. (Gotta pay the troll toll...)
I'm sure none of you are looking forward to being the dumb kid, though, so stake down your tents.
