Leave the box wine at home, this is Deer Valley.
As you know, I went to the Feist concert on Thursday. Because the last concert I went to was still fresh in my memory, comparisons were impossible to avoid.
So, for your reading pleasure (and so you can fit in next time you go to a show at Deer Valley), here are a few of my favorite observations.
1. When participating in any Deer Valley event, you must leave the "booty" shorts and combat boots at home.
In their stead, you can wear something you picked up at the local Abercrombie and Fitch or Gossip Girl yard sale.
Maybe this picture illustrates best what I'm talking about.
2. Don't even think about eating your gourmet cupcake with anything but a spoon.
That's right, a spoon.
Only pigs and and Journey fans stuff cupcakes in their faces with their hands.
3. Be informed that the shiny, brass, rectangular thing on the wall in the bathroom is, in fact, a baby changing station.
4. Make sure you don't forget your haute cuisine via picnic basket. If you do, don't fret, they sell fully loaded picnic baskets at the concessions stand.
Each basket contains (or should contain) the following:
Cheese (nicely aged)
Wine (good vintage)
Wine glass holder (to stick in the lawn)
...and possibly some real food (not verified).
All in all, Deer Valley has proven again that it's all right.
As for the show, Feist was a great performer. I think she wooed the Deer Valley crowd, and they can be pretty hard to please. I mean, old people were dancing in the aisles.
Here's to Deer Vally and Feist.
