You’re eighty-percent sure you dislocated your shoulder fist pumping during the Major Lazer set—and you’re totally cool with that. To deny the urge to violently jerk your body around during the part of the song that goes “dum duh-dum dum dum” is to deny the very thing that makes you human.
The beating Indio sun has you dehydrated and you haven’t eaten anything since the melted Kind Bar you scarfed down six hours ago. You’ll consume anything at this point, but the line for food truck grilled cheeses is sixty people deep. And to think, if you had a little more foresight you could have been sitting in a comfy chair, sipping on one of Pok Pok’s tamarind margaritas while tossing back pork skewers like they were candy.
DON’T BE THAT HYPOTHETICAL PERSON. If you’re reading this, it’s not too late to make a reservation for one of the three full service pop-ups that are going to be churning out the classiest food at Coachella. Pok Pok, Commissary, and Rosaliné—Ricardo Zarate’s yet-to-open Melrose restaurant—are serving three-course meals in the VIP section for $50 a pop. The restaurants will be serving food from 4 p.m.-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 4 p.m.-10 p.m. on Sunday, and all reservations can be made through Open Table. Hop on them fast and don’t settle for melted Kind Bars and overpriced water bottles. Check out the menus and info below.
