I've had my fair share of pulled pork sandwiches over the years, but this might be the most tender, juicy one I've had. You can taste the slow cooked piles of love that went into this. The pork had the most perfect color and not one bit was dry or overcooked. It was simply prepared with a dash of sauce and a couple of pickles, but when the meat is this damn good, you don't need to cover it up with anything.
After my fairly early lunch I headed to catch Charli XCX. This girl is a teeny tiny powerhouse that dresses like an extra from Clueless. Plaid skirt? Check. Crop top? Check. Massive platform sneakers? Check. Charli XCX is pure pop music and I feel like a super tween fangirl for liking her as much as I do. To prove how much she loved the 90s, Charli covered Backstreet Boy's I Want It That Way.
Since I can't go more than 3 hours without eating, I stopped back by the Food Truck Oasis to sample something from Cracked. There are few things I like more in this world than a perfectly cooked egg and I know I'm gonna love a truck that makes this humble food their star ingredient. I did what I had to do and ordered the Goy Vey (bacon, hard salami, hash brown and a fried egg with sweet and spicy cream cheese on a ciabatta roll). This was glorious and for sure the best breakfast-for-dinner I've had in a long time. The sweet and spicy cream cheese made this not your regular run of the mill breakfast sandwich. The only downfall was the hash brown was fairly thin and hard to discern amongst all that fluffy bread.
|What Bonnaroo at Night looks like to me|
After food I checked out Wu Tang Clan for my friend Jeff who insisted I see it. There were 15 dudes on the stage and a whole bunch of kids making the W with their hands. I think this whole show went over my head. Then it was onto Sir Paul McCartney who put on an epic set that was everything I expected and more (I honestly can't say anything about Paul that hasn't been said before, so I won't even try). Would I be lame to say I teared up a bit during Hey Jude? After Paul I wandered around catching bits of the late night shows including The XX, ZZ Top and Pretty Lights. This is why it's so easy for your day to get away from you at Bonnaroo!
Now it's time for me to head back into Centeroo to see some more bands!
