Thread: Anyone else get food poisoning from the burgers from "burgers and fries"??

  1. #1

    Exclamation Anyone else get food poisoning from the burgers from "burgers and fries"??

    I ate a burger weekend 2 (Saturday) at around 11pm. when I got back to my hotel I was vomiting and had diarrhea for 2 days. I had to spend 3 hours in the ER getting fluids and getting bloodwork. Most of my vacation was ruined due to this unfortunate event.

    Wondering if anyone had a similar experience?

    My daughter was sick with the same symptoms just before we left for the desert, and GPS complained of a similar issue. Something was going around, so it might not have been food poisoning.

    I had a stomach bug on Friday and Saturday that I do not believe was food related, but my symptoms were much more mild than what OP described.

    I kept shitting on Sunday. Not fully composed. Then again, I hadn't shit since Wednesday, so I was getting concerned.

    Took a few tokes and stomach issues were all gone.

    Someone in our group got food poisoning and she is convinced it was the dumplings that did her in.

    Thanks for the replies. The physician i saw was fairly certain it was food poisoning.

    You're eating food from a stand in 100 degree heat. These things happen, and should be somewhat expected.

    I got the hurls Monday night. Food poisoning can take up to 3 days to appear. I think it was all those flies dropping poo and pee all over. I was reading that dollar bills in hot, sweaty wallets and pockets carry 300 types of bacteria, including food poisoning. I don't know where I got it, but I ate very little Coachella food Weekend 2.

    Did the physician recommend you buttress his or her diagnosis with a sample survey of the coachella message board?

    If I wanted a good hamburger, I would go to the Farmer Boys on Indio Boulevard.

    With no supreme being in existence, praying will not cause that to happen. I just pray "Just Our Luck" season 1 is released on DVD and blue ray, the most underrated sitcom from the 1983 television season. TK Carter has never been funnier.

    Was that donut place on Monroe? I passed by it around 2AM on Thursday of week 1 and immediately thought of you.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I have an idea:

    Next year they should implement a cash-less system. In the app you could get a QR that can act as reloadable wallet, like the Starbucks card. You can event integrate that into Passport on phone or print it.

    Have QR readers and iPads with food, drinks and merch vendors so that there's no exchange of cash (maybe except for tips, but that's one way). I would be down for not having to carry cash.

    There are some solutions that will allow them to brand an e-wallet like this. Or give me a call Goldenvoice, my company does software like this.

    Yeah QR is kind of a weird tech that not alot of people know about. If anything, have your wristband as your wallet and you can fill it up on the website or even at Coachella with some sort of stations or something with your CC.

    connect payment to the wristbands...we just add credit card or debit card to the account.

    The system works very well...it wouldn't be hard to add. No need to carry wallet or money...only an ID for the initial beer garden wristband.
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    I think an Insomniac event had a system like this (or a card system) or something a few years ago and the whole thing did not go well.

    It's probably a ton easier for the vendors to handle cash, be able to pay the employees immediately at the end of their shift, run out for more supplies if necessary, etc. They pay a huge sum to be able to sell there, having immediate access to funds is pretty nice. No disputes later on should something go wonky.

    I made a powerful Imodium aoli that I put on all my coachella foods to combat the inevitable stomach problems. Also if we all would've answered your question with a resounding no - would you have found a new physician?
