Your Dillo Day Fanny Pack

Your Dillo Day Fanny Pack

But if there’s one thing you don’t want to forget about on Dillo, it’s food. Let’s face it — for most of us, the only thing we’re worried about consuming is alcohol (that’s a food group, right?). But spending a full day drinking in the sun can be dangerous without some snacks and other edible must-haves in the mix. Here are the five fanny pack food fillers you need to have:

1. Mints or gum

Because nobody likes hot dog/beer/pizza/vodka breath.

2. Advil or Tylenol

Headaches suck in general, but the sun and loud music definitely won’t help.

3. Crackers

They’ll absorb that alcohol right up.

4. Granola bars

They’re filling but not too heavy, so they make a good, quick hunger fix.

5. Something with protein

This can take the form of a protein bar, jerky, nuts, etc. Protein will curb your appetite for hours and help the alcohol absorb more slowly, meaning you won’t get hit by that hangover at 2 pm.

Happy Dillo-Daying!

How You’ll Get Hurt at Burning Man (or ACL?)

Austin City Limits starts tomorrow. Who are you excited to see? I'm pumped for a few acts, The Morning Benders are possibly my most anticipated show. Their CD Big Echo is amazing. If you haven't heard them, go look them up before you hit the fest.

The weather this year will be the best ever. As my seventh year in attendance, I remember well the hot hot days of ACL in September. No rain on the forecast, so we wont be knee-deep in Austin's Dillo Dirt. ACL was defiantly number two in the nation last year. The humidity, rain, and heat sucked on the last day of the fest. I even left my shoes at ACL. There was no hope of recovery.

Now, I've been to quite a few fests. I have a list of the 10 essential-non-essential items I'd love to share.
1 ) Bubbles – Bubbles are a must have. Who hates bubbles? No one.
2 ) Glow Sticks – We brought 3000 to Ghostland during last year's ACL. Always fun.
3 ) Frisbee – The grass will be perfect for bare-foot frisbeeing.
4 ) Jacket – You may need it if you're staying late.
5 ) Umbrella – For the rain or the sun. For a cane or when you're on the run.
6 ) CamelBak – Fill it with water….or something else.
7 ) Fanny Pack – For when you're wanting to look cool and not wear a back pack.
8 ) Water Gun/Water Balloons – It's a festival, peeps wont care if you get them wet.
9 ) Plastic Baggies – Always have these, always keep your phone in it. Beer, rain, water, and other liquids will find their way to your phone.
10) Bandanna – Back in the dust bowl days of ACL it was essential, now it just looks cool.

The festival has changed a lot. Too many Westlake middle schoolers show up now. I guess comparing a music fest to Burning Man isn't very fair. Burning man is at least 5 times as crazy as ACL. Still, it's no place for pre-teens.

Well concert-goers, be safe, drink water, dance and make it home… or at least make it out of Zilker alive. [Via]
