huichica festival

Kate ParrishComment

a few weeks back we randomly saw a poster for huichica festival while we were grabbing lunch. when we noticed it was hosted at a winery, by some of our fav restaurants, with some awesome bands {well i hadn't heard of most of them at the time, buuutt thank you spotify playlist!} we thought, why the hell not. *what's up, staycation?*

we started the day by checking into our random {and kinda janky yet cute} little sonoma hotel {it had a pool, so...} and relaxed for a bit. the festival was much smaller than we anticipated – which was a pleasant surprise. no lines, no crowded panic attacks {i'm turning into an old woman}, extremely clean bathrooms, free wine tasting, i mean...... were we in heaven? 

throughout the day we had the most delicious bites from bunk sandwiches, salumerianamu gaji {chicken skewers!}, skylite snow balls, and *two bottles* of gundlach bundschu rosé {insert need for aforementioned janky hotel – who could drive home after this freak show?}... 

^^we spent most of our day parked on this little mh blanket

after a long day spent in the sun, we finished our night in sonoma at the girl and the fig. this spot was beyond awesome – we sat outside under the heat lamps and next to the fire place enjoying mussels, cheese, and steak tar tar. i know it sounds like all we did was eat and drink all day, but... we also fell in love with some amazing new tunes a perfect sonoma staycation. cheers!
