    Tried to find a price tag, guess will have to wait until tomorrow. They did something like this at Woodstock 99, but it was so far from the stages...still was the best (only) real meal i had that weekend.

    Does this mean the Rose Garden will no longer be VIP only?

    I did it a few years back with my wife - very expensive (usually over $200.00 a head) but was loads of fun. Met some great people and had a fantastic time.

    I really dig this video.


    Damn, it won't load http://vimeo.com/36558406

    My only real fear with this is if it conflicts with one of the acts I really want to see, I'm probably out a few hundred bucks. I mean if there is something great playing, it's unlikely I'd find anyone to even give them away to.

    This would be more tempting if it was a 4 course brunch (with same welcome cocktail, unlimited beer & wine plus bloodies and mimosas) starting at noon.

    Sweaty brunch.

    What is the menu and would this allow you access to the rose garden all weekend?

    From the purchase page:

    Looking for an amazing dining experience without leaving the festival grounds? We are bringing a 4-course meal to the Rose Garden.

    Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure – literally a restaurant without walls. Since 1999 they have set the long table at farms or gardens, on mountain tops or in sea caves, on islands or at ranches…and now at a festival.
    Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table. Ingredients for the meal are almost all local (sometimes sourced within inches of your seat at the table!) and generally prepared by a celebrated chef of the region.

    Price includes a welcome cocktail; unlimited beer, wine, and nonalcoholic beverages; 4-course meal (Vegan/Vegetarian diets will be accommodated). Must be 21+ for alcoholic beverages.

    Purchasers will be contacted directly closer to the event with specific details. There are 2 seats per day to choose from. Open to anyone with a GA or VIP Festival Pass.
    Emphasis mine.

    Maybe a getbetter-like opportunity to see if you can get your money's worth?

    That does sound pretty awesome. That price is pretty rough, but being this'll be my last year for a bit maybe it's worth the investment for the new experience.

    You guys are all a bit autistic, so which do you think would be the best time slot to consider this in relation to the poster and prospective set times?

    If we do this, it would be Saturday night, probably the earlier time.

    I'll talk with OB, it's a lot of damn money, and also a pretty big self-acknowledgement of yuppiedom.

    I'd like to do this but would rather wait until the schedule comes out to make up my mind. Any idea if this will still be available in April when the schedule comes out?

    That's what I was thinking too, but I don't know how many plates per seating we are talking about here.

    I think I might bite the bullet on this. Having at least one other boardie in there would be awesome though.

    This does sound delish, but the possibility of a band conflict is what's holding me back. I feel like I should wait until the set times are out so I can pick a seating time. But what if it sells out before then?

    I think we should all give Gunz $30-50 and we could have a killer brunch in her back yard I know at Waka and the Roo we always have a brunch each year. At Waka there are bands that play in the woods while people are cooking and at the Roo Adam and the Food Channel actually dropped in last year. Pretty cool. cr****
