Rather than scooping the eggless salad onto a naked plate, or a bed of greens, I…

Ah, music festivals. The prime spot to see flower wreath headbands by the thousands, and the youth of America running a total muck. Yes, festivals make for a surreal experience filled with nonstop people watching, fashion trends I can’t possibly pretend to understand, vegan food (if you’re lucky), and peculiar things on sticks (i.e. horse heads).
