The Best Things We Overheard at Free Press Summer Fest
"I got laid last night, it was a good night"
"Crazy people watching, man..."
"I SMELL MARIJUANA!"
"I think we're spending more time pretending we're watching shows that actually watching shows"
"Yeah. I like to play Guess That Drug"
The sweet sounds of Phish coming from the Southernmost Falafel stand upon our exit. Made me think for a second I wanted some falafel. Just for a second, though.
"I don't drink beer, beer is for ugly girls"

Guy 1: You know what would have happened if she had fallen off his shoulders after that? It would have been...
Guy 1 + Guy 2: Death by high-five!
Guy 1: We should all go that way.
"Wu-Tang Clan? That's where Cee Lo got his start, right?"
"Bill Balleza!!!" said some guy to Channel 11 newscaster Ron Trevino as he walked by. "We all look the same," Trevino retorted with a smile.
"Hey, you've got cheese on your mouth"
"Free Wu-Tang is better than expensive Wu-Tang"
Cop screams in her best cookie monster voice, "I gotta peeeeee!!" into the Federal Reserve gate security box. Gate opens.
"Eh, I don't think there's nothin' in that anyway"
"Why would they make JUPITER the SMALLEST stage??"

"You are familiar with Gambino, yes? How would you describe to her?"
Man to friends:
"So, do you think today will be cheaper than yesterday?"
Friends, unanimously: "No."
FLOSStradamus: "Any time we play this, we make everyone get down low!"
Man next to me, non-ironically: "Oh nooooo. I do NOT have the quads for that."
"What time does Passion Pit go on?"
"OHMIGOD it smells like pot"
