Caught a bit of Lollapalooza this weekend in Chicago and had a wonderful time. Only *really* experienced Radiohead (aurally from across the street) and Rage Against the Machine (from the side of the stage). Both were awesome. Enjoy the photos below.

The below map is a sketch of some or all of the vineyards we’ll visit on this lovely afternoon. From the Hilton north of Santa Rosa, to Silver Oak (and possibly Meeker) and points Geyserville / Dry Creek, including Ferrari Cerrano, Bella, Mauritson, and Mazzocco. Followed by lunch in Healdsburg, then a scenic drive to Ledson in Kenwood, with possible stops at Mayo Family and finally Roshambo before a roadside nap and then drive to drop off the rentacar at SFO in time for an 8:15 flight.
Anything I ABSOLUTELY MUST hit along this route that I’ve left out? DO let me know with a text message (323.679.4945) or follow the adventure here. Photos and tasting notes to follow.

Early-bird tix are available now via Radiohead HQ.
When they said that Lollapalooza-type festivals would be criss-crossing the country eating each other up, they weren’t kidding. But what could be better than an August weekend in Golden Gate Park with the music accoutrements of (for starters):
