ATTN: JUST TO CLARIFY... this poll asks whether you get "intoxicated." It does not ask anything specifically related to alcohol. Please indicate any future votes accordingly....other substances that cause intoxication do apply here. Thanks.
Now...Who on this message board likes to party?

The Bloody Marys in the Polo Club at the Campgrounds are not to be missed,make sure you go inside and swipe some Jicama though!These usually are a great way to start the day,especially if you go to the Filter Party w/Free Booze Thurs Night and drink too many Red Bull/Vodkas.When you first get in the fest,it's best to stick with water/soda until an act like Satellite Party gets on,then run to the Beer Lounge next to the MainStage,where you can still hear the music,and have shade and drink beer.Late afternoon is when I hit the tents (NOT the Sahara),when they are hopefully cooling off some.After the good stuff in the early evening at the Mainstage last year (JAMC,Arcade Fire) a little pick-me-up sometimes helps before finishing up at the Sahara or the Mojave.

We stop for lunch on the way there and have a couple beers(unless its the in-and-out on ramon and the highway. Then I'll grab a 40-roadie. Once inside I'll have 5 or 6 beers, just enough to maintain my buzz. But I want to remember everything so no smoking. Maybe acid or shrooms this year.

i learned FAST about drinkin in the desert! passed out during Cake in '02 and spent the rest of the day in the med tent. it really sucked!!
i now drink memosas in the mornin, smoke all day, maybe get a little etarded, and then drink night away!

It's too damn hot to get drunk during the day, though I like an ice cold beer between sets. I was just telling a friend that Coachella is set apart from most festivals because it doesn't really have the young kids all drunk and puking and all high and stuff, it's nice to see people dedicated enough to get all the way to coachella from other parts of the world, and be there for the music.
Don't get me wrong, I've had my share of stuff, I'm just saying..

If anything, have a few drinks at night with the neighbors. Always the best. during the day= dehydration. yikes!

i drink during the day, the key though is to mix in lots of water with the booze. rotate beer, water, beer, water, etc. i usually have cocktails in the parking lot, then beer once inside.

jjbaldwi
01-27-2008, 12:53 PM
I prefer to rotate: joint, beer, blunt, beer, joint, beer... etc.

I used to go nuts for 2 or 3 days straight, and it was always fun, but I noticed there were too many fuzzy memories, and it started to bother me....then I realized I could have as much fun drinking some before the fest, then having a few beers throughout the day, getting a little buzz, while still being coherent & remembering the entire experience. Fuck, am I growing up?

I didn't try the ones at the campgrounds yet but I have not heard any really outstanding reviews of it til now.

Ugh...I can't stand drinking in the heat. Maybe a beer after dark, but not enough to get f-ed up.

meyouseek
01-28-2008, 12:32 PM
I try to plan my intoxication schedule to accommodate what I'm seeing. I'm also always driving so I need to take that into account.

Drinking during the day? Hell yeah! Smoke, E, Psy? Sure! Remember everything? I remember airplanes sending me coded messages and trying to grab the moon from the sky. Others tell me we were at Justice.

Enjoy your clear-headed memories. I'm doing ok with mine.

The worst thing EVER is getting really high in the desert. Just... wait until night to drink/smoke whatever. During the day is just unbearable

Weeping Willow

I drink mostly water during the day, and descend into the beer garden when the sun starts going down. I kind of wish they sold more of a variety of beer.

I don't think i've ever had more than 1 beer per day while at coachella...the hassle factor of having to drink in the biergarden plus the heat plus the fact that no hard liquor is available (sorry, those shitty 'margaritas' and 'daquiris' don't count) just make it unenjoyable. i have enjoyed other substances there, however :-)

Coachella needs to get an additional beer vendor. Heineken in the heat is kinda rough @ times.

I dont understand how you BARE the day time without being high. I mean there are obvious things to avoid, I personally always feel about 20 degrees hotter when im on mushrooms. but smoking herb takes the edge off...

daytime: bowls bowls bowls bowls
nighttime: a whole array of magic is to be consumed and experienced and WOW.

Going to Ultra this year instead of Coachella, and we know what all the cool kids do at Ultra(which is just a huge legal rave)....but hallucinogenics are the way to go at festivals if you are going to do anything, you will not pass out, your senses will definitely be heightened, and I doubt you will forget anything. Music is experienced to a new level. Getting wasted drunk at a fest, whats the point? A few beers maybe but why get wasted drunk, you can do that at a bar at home, and we all know the consequences of drinking too much, who wants to experience that at a festival? Personally, I think you're way more aware of how you're behaving on psychedelics than on alcohol, at least if you've done them prior. Whatever you do, moderation is key. Be safe and have fun.

I will never drink at Coachella. OR do mushrooms- for some reason they make me sweat.

I'll smoke all day and maybe do some E or coke in the Sahara at night. Not this year though because I'm pregnant! One good thing is I'll have a clear memory of this year's events!

I like sippin on a little rum during a set. As for heineken its too heavy to drink in the heat, it stays in your system too long. They need a light beer or corona to sponsor the event. I wear a hat and sunglasses, the heat doesnt really get too me.

Ever since '05 they have offerered Bud Light if you don't want the Heineken... but then again for the same price I'll take the Heineken...

weed during the day, maybe a beer or two when there is no one good performing. I personally can't get drunk off heineken, especially in the heat... would go broke before the buzz kicks in.

After dark, its hippy-flipping time. Then a nice cool sauvignon blanc in the hotel hot tub before bed.

I smoke during the day, but thats night and day time activities for me, then I usually pop a pill when the sun is going down but I have popped right in the barreling heat of the day before. Then when night rolls on I try to find the booms to make the night more interesting but usually just pop if the shrooms are hard to find. In 2007, it was so hot that I wasn't gonna take any of the pills I brought, but caved in on Stephen Marley. Jarvis Cooker and Sonic Youth didn't help, just wanted more...

Everyday at coachella I drink copious amounts of water all through the day but I also drink, smoke, and sample other substances. I have never gotten sick, I have always felt fine.

Moral of the story? Drink a shit ton of water and you will be fine to do anything.

i was at the water filling station pretty much every hour and i still got sick after coachella on account of my excessive hedonistic indulgences. alcohol/drugs do quite a number on your immune system regardless of water intake. its the risk you take but its well worth it in the end. i think ill try bringing multi-vitamins this year tho

The good kind, the ones like a couple weekends ago when I was dancing my face off, I can pop those and see a rock concert, I still get the same vibe...

Some of my best rolls have been at rock shows and reggae shows, but I do love raving in the sahara...

In '08 went completely sober.

In '09 would chugg vodka (yuck.) before going into the fest, smoke weed during it, and then get drunk on the campsite at night.

haven't popped my drugzzzzzzz cherry yet.
