You may have noticed I made May 1st bold - that's because it is a very important day
Let's get it is playing Bamboozle - And I get to go!!!!
What is Bamboozle you ask? Bamboozle is a HUGE two day music festival with tons of artists performing such as:
Drake, Paramore, Weezer, MGMT, Hanson, Kesha, Motion City Soundtrack, Never Shout Never, Angels & Airwaves, Etc.
(Click here to see the Bamboozle page - with all of the artists listed by day)
Wooohooo!Thanks to the guys - my friend Kim (whose fella is in the band as well) and I get to attend the festival for free, and we also get laminated passes - which means we have access to everything the bands have access to! How awesome is that? I'm very grateful for all of the places, and things I get to see thanks to the band - so thanks again guys!
I'm not sure whether Kim and I will be leaving on Thursday or Friday - but we have a long 8-11 hour drive ahead of us to New Jersey! Since I will be out of town I will be unable to blog for a few days. While I'm gone I will make sure to take pictures of everyone and everything I see. Then I will return Sunday or Monday to give you guys a full report!!
I'm very very excited for this 'road trip/musicaltastic' weekend!!!
(Like I've previously stated - if you live anywhere close to any of the locations where Let's get it will be playing - I strongly suggest you take the time to go and see them. They put on a mighty good show!)
Let us begin...

REFUGE DES FONDUS
"Bottle service. As rumor has it, this favorite tourist attraction in the Montmartre neighborhood first began offering patrons wine in baby bottles as a way to avoid the French tax on wine served in proper glasses. While sucking down the grape juice, winos can fill their bellies with toothsome cheese or beef fondues."

(1) NEXT GARBAGE MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB: SEATTLE TAKES ON FAST FOOD IN JULY
"Seattle is getting ready to become the first city in the country to eliminate fast-food packaging from the landfill. Starting July 1, most of the wrappers, cups and packaging that comes with a restaurant meal will have to be recyclable or compostable. Seattle Public Utilities analysts predict this will keep a minimum 6,000 tons of waste out of the landfill each year --about the same amount as a garbage train 100 cars long.
Safeco Field is getting a head start on the new rules. This season staff worked with vendors to replace the food packaging at the ballpark with recyclable and compostable alternatives, and staff removed most of the garbage cans, replacing them with bins for compostables.
There are still some items that go in the garbage, such as Pepsi cups, potato chip and kettle corn wrappers and tartar sauce containers, but the program has been a success."

(2) HAPPY MEAL TOYS COULD BE BANNED IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY (CA)
"The latest target in the battle over fast food is something you shouldn't even put in your mouth. Convinced that Happy Meals and other food promotions aimed at children could make kids fat as well as happy, county officials in Silicon Valley are poised to outlaw the little toys that often come with high-calorie offerings.
The proposed ban is the latest in a growing string of efforts to change the types of foods aimed at youngsters and the way they are cooked and sold. Across the nation, cities, states and school boards have taken aim at excessive sugar, salt and certain types of fats.
Believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, the proposal would forbid the inclusion of a toy in any restaurant meal that has more than 485 calories, more than 600 mg of salt or high amounts of sugar or fat. In the case of McDonald's, the limits would include all of the chain's Happy Meals — even those that include apple sticks instead of French fries.
Supporters say the ban would encourage restaurants to offer more-nutritious foods to kids and would make unhealthful items less appealing. But opponents believe it amounts to government meddling in parental decisions."

DESIGNER KITCHEN BY GRAFT
"Loft Hamburg, located in a restored building in Winterhude district of Hamburg, is a private 118 square-meter residence designed by Graft. The focal point of the high-ceilinged and otherwise white space is a large pod paneled with walnut. The pod contains the residence’s kitchen and bathroom, hides its central heating, cooling and plumbing, and even provides some cupboards and bookshelves. The owner was looking to use a wide variety of materials, and the walnut pod contrasts beautifully with the soft fabrics, leather and natural stone used elsewhere in the loft."
