Rye on the Road at Outside Lands

1 09 2009

This weekend I had the amazing opportunity to help the Rye on the Road crew at Outside Lands in Golden Gate Park.  Marco Dionysos, formerly of Clock Bar, is now helping out at Rye during the week and made cocktails for the “talent” at the show on Saturday.  We had a great post up on the hilltop of the Polo Fields Stage Left at the Altec Lansing booth where they sponsored specialty cocktails with Prosecco and beer drawing the performers with samples of their exciting new ipod/iphone boom box.  Jason Mraz even came by!

Rye on the Road offers a great opportunity for those who need bar service around the bay area including ingredients, qualified bar staff and even the actual bar!  We first learned about these bars at Slow Food Nation San Francisco, but they have also been used at the event I helped to run, SF Chefs. Food. Wine. as well as at the recent event in the park.  The benefit is clear the minute you walk up to the bar.  Each is equipped with unique trays for condiments and fruit, area for ice, storage area and all is packaged in a wood finished and very stylish bar on wheels.  This means that no matter where you are you can have a bar (or 10!).   And the cocktails were delicious, including the Pop Princess (otherwise known as the B.A.M.F.).
