Hi guys, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the Great GoogaMooga 2013. You can check back here for plenty of pictures of bands and a few updates on what’s going on in the park. Here’s a few things to know:
-beers are $7 or $8 at the normal beverage tents, but the selection is a little small. There’s a larger beer tent, but you need to buy tickets for that, for $1 each, with beers in there going for $3 or $4. We’d recommend paying cash, the credit card machines were already a little janky. You also have to buy a $2 reusable cup, because uh…it makes the craft beer taste better.
-if you bring an empty water bottle, there doesn’t look to be anywhere you can actually fill it up, with the only water fountain in the festival area behind the press area
Is there meat? Yes, plenty. In fact, here’s a veritable wall of pork products
A WORD ABOUT THE BEER TENT
Be aware that if you’re going to try to get the craft beers, to make sure you only ask for a size that only costs thee of four tickets. No one’s very clear about it, and the next thing you know, you’re paying $13 for the small amount of beer seen above. No one should have to suffer that fate.
While you won’t find anything super duper cheap here today, it’s not all $16 lobster rolls and $10 grilled cheese. The best deal we’ve food so far is the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que platter (above), which gets you a large sandwich, cole slaw and beans for $11. It’s what you might even call a reasonable deal
UPDATE IV: It stopped raining, thank god
