    Default The not-so-good news: Food and drink prices?

    Hi -- first timey nerd questions, sorry:
    I assume all the food and drink places are cash only? Do the ATMs charge a frightening amount?
    And just a ballpark idea of costs... beers are about how much? Cocktails? Piece of pizza? Food truck treats, etc..? POUTINE (which I am way too excited for)
    Thanks for any help you can throw my way

    Don't be a fat fuck and just go light on the eating. You survive on beer and water. Food is for pussies.

    Food prices at Coachella are most certainly not ridiculous $$... unless they've dramatically raised since I've been going.

    Put a couple granola bars in your pocket if you're that concerned.

    Other than that. Expect to pay about $10 for some food. What is it, $8 beers now? Close enough. Don't waste money on non-alcoholic beverages. Drink water if you're thirsty.

    I generally enjoy one polo field meal a day to stave off hunger and extreme drunkenness. Don't starve yourself to save $10.

    Make sure you go to the ATM early and get out as much cash as you can for the whole weekend. Last time I had to drive all over Indio on Sunday looking for an ATM that still had cash in it.

    $3 hot chai at the indian food place will save your ass from the long line in coffee and be much tastier.

    everything was reasonably priced. I got a huge fucking turkey sandwich with avo and bacon and cheese for $8.

    That's $1.59 more than subway and much better than subway

    $7 for an ultimate taco from the Lime Truck in the campground. Pricy and not incredibly filling but extrememly tasty. A luxurious snack.

    Spicy pie has $7 slices but these are enormous slices and make a decent meal all by themselves.

    I snuck in snack bars every day and brought a water bottle. Don't think I spent a penny onsite the entire weekend beyond the ATDI Vinyl release.

    A guard did find one of my bars, called over the security advisor and let me keep it anyways.

    BTW, I wore shoes through security and had sandals in my locker.

    We snuck in food every day. It was not hidden at all in the backpack and he saw it
    and did not care. But made me pour out my water.

    Dont get the Churros - mine was so bad I took it back and the replacement was just as bad.

    The huge pie shaped cookie at the pizza place is yummy and $4

    bring cash and don't use the atms.

    beers are on the order of $9. this year they have $11 vodka cocktails which, last week at least, got you more than a shot in each. pizza is $7/slice. the best food i had was the soba noodles from the place at the corner of the 'L' in the main food area. the worst food i had was a spinach+tomato crepe; if you go to the crepe place, stick to the dessert crepes.

    $6 for a latte seems steep; i was paying $4 for a double espresso + coffee.
