Fired Up for Festival Season
The time has come again. Festival season. Whether you're camping out or dropping money on hotels, you can expect to be sweating your ass off, fighting against the heat in some of the hottest places in our country at the hottest times of the year, to see (or hear in my case...downfall of being short) our favorite musicians. Coachella, Wanee, Jazz Fest, Memphis in May, Hangout Fest, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Fest, etc.
But I want to tell you about a festival food vendor I stumbled across on a NOT so hot festival weekend. They are called Fired Up Kitchen. I found them at Harvest Festival a few years back. And I have been thinking about their delicious pizza ever since my teeth made their journey through the freshly crushed tomato, sweet basil pesto, creamy ricotta and mozzarella cheeses and finally the perfectly cooked wood-fired crust of a slice of Hill Country Stomp.
I didn't need drugs, I had pizza. It was my drug. It transported me to an Italian village where I made ravenous love to a piece of mouth watering, pizza. That in turn, burnt the hell outta the roof of my mouth, the no good, rat bastard.
Look for it at the next music festival you find yourself at. You will not be disappointed. Happy festival, drink lots of water, say no to drugs and Buon Appetito!
