    I discovered the veggie hard shell tacos at the Las Casuelas stand this year. Soooooo tasty! I had no less than 3 different groups of people ask me where I got them.
    Don't remember how much they were but they were so satisfying.

    ^ ding. Ding. Ding. You think you will care about food, but you won't. I don't remember being hungry one time, and all I ate was almonds and beef jerky. Earlier in the festival we did purchase two trays of two tacos each, with two waters and two cokes and it was $38. It tasted like $6 though.

    Last year I brought too much $$$ to Coachella.

    This year I didn't bring enough and had to use the ATM.

    Next year I'm bringing too much $$$. Fucking fees.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Those Animal Fries (garlic fries, pulled pork & coleslaw) were delicious

    I was happy to see the crepe place back this year. in 2010 I had a spinach and artichoke crepe and it was the best meal I've ever had inside the festival grounds. they didn't have that type this year, but the chicken and brocolli and seafood crepes were equally as good. they were $9-10.50.

    I really wanted to try one of those crepes, but I just never made it over there. Same with the Lime Truck.

    bastards caught my granola bars.
    always hide them deep in your backpack or in your bra or something.

    to cut down on food prices, I just find the biggest plate and eat half for lunch and wrap the other half up for dinner. burritos work well for this. they're usually between 7-9 dollars.
    the pizza and garlic fries are the best food at camp though, imo.

    I've managed to bring granola bars in every time for the past 8 years. I always tell them my wife is diabetic (truth) and needs to keep something on hand in case she has a sudden drop in blood sugar. Never had a problem.
    I hope to someday die of spontaneous human combustion, and in my final moments, I want to give each and every one of you a hug.

    most prices have not changed, however there seem to be more options now that are more expensive than what was offered in the past (like at the sit down restaurant, but that is to be expected)

    the secret to getting a good churro is the same at coachella as it is at amusement parks. you want to hit them up when they have been somewhat recently restocked and when there are lots of people buying them. you want the churro stand you're buying from to have a line. if there is no line at the churro stand and you only see a handful of churros in the machine you're gonna get a stale soggy churro almost every time.

    Thanks for any help you can throw my way
    There have been rumors floating for years of a plan to switch festival vending to be credit card linked to the RFID chip in the wristbands, but it never seems to pan out.

    Water is $2. Heineken is usually $9, I think soju cocktails run to $11. Pizza is $5 a slice IIRC.

    6 Beers - $60 (tip your bartenders ya heathens)
    1 Pinks Chili Dog - $9 plus tip
    1 Slice of Spicy Pie - $7 plus tip
    1 Water - $2 plus tip

    Leaving $17 for Brunch or merch. BAM!
