I may have just been baked/drunk/big fat mess, but I actually didn't mind the food, I had a couple of those yakisoba rice bowls and I did find them that bad. On the other hand I do remember having what "they" called a Gyro(early in the day pre-weed cookies/9 beers), and that was fucking terrible. I would of complained, but I'm a total pussy.
Don't know if anyone else stopped by, but I was camping right behind (and made friends with) these guys from Portland that used all local foods from Portland to make omelettes every morning for donation in order to promote local agriculture. Not only was it a great cause but the omelettes were fucking great (they were simple, only egg and cheese, but delicious nonetheless). Hopefully a lot of people here got to take advantage of that. They said they'd probably be back next year too. Look for a big red balloon and you'll probably find 'em.
lumpy, we were camped right next to each other. Did you see the slip and slide on Monday?
As for the terrible food, I don't know what made it better than last year. It's the same food they have every year, and at every Gorge event. Adam Snacks has some tasty recipes on his private blog, so I know he has good taste in food. It is simply not his call what gets served there.
yeah, if anyone's interested next year look for the guy on the very left standing, the very right standing, and the guy kneeling. they were the ones serving the omelettes and coffee. they make delicious food, are super nice and funny guys, and are helping a good cause.
and if anyone's wondering, i'm the guy who seems like he somehow snuck into this picture, the only one that's not in a pair.

A bunch of LiveNation fucks swarmed on this campsite that was selling breakfast food for 'donations' that we found ourselves in at like 6:00am on Sunday morning. They not only shut them down, but kicked them out of the festival. They cited health code violations, which in retrospect makes pretty good sense, but I don't feel like it requires seven yellowshirts piled into one golf cart to hand down that verdict.
In case I haven't said it lately: Fuck LiveNation in the ear.
The breakfast burrito guys with the GIANT refrigerated truck were selling food all morning and night until the last day of the festival, and they were right next to one of the main walking paths too. How the hell did they not get shut down immediately?

The guys that got shut down were less than 100 yards up the path from the guy selling breakfast burritos out of the back of that big moving truck. I couldn't figure it out. My only guess is that he either managed to get some kind of permit (not likely) or that he was giving the LiveNation fuckers a cut (more likely).
Also, I wonder why there was no Denny's/Chili's/whatever on location near the general store this year?

Maybe the dudes who got shut down really were breaking health code? I saw a giant Pita Pit RV, which I assume was selling Pitas, but I'm sure they've done this many places, and follow the health code. A couple hippies trying to make a buck are probably less conscious of this.
The article posted above illustrates this. Some people got sick, and the festival takes a hit for it in the public eye.
Yeah, it must be the health code thing. The guys I mentioned above never had any problems with any authority figures. They were very sanitary when it came to their food preparation. And they knew what they were doing cooking-wise.
