BottleRock 2017 is hands-down the best place for people to drink when they’re tired of drinking in their living room. It is the ultimate festival destination for moms and anybody else trying to get white girl wasted during the day. With a wide selection of red wine, white wine, and even beer, you’re bound to have a good time at this festival.

With three days to explore the festival grounds, you’ll quickly discover there is something for everyone. I had an amazing time, but I wanted to focus specifically on the top 10 things I witnessed while at BottleRock music festival 2017.

NUMBER TEN
I went to the festival alone … but it’s ok, the festival was sold out and there were approximately 40,000 MILFs at BottleRock each of the 3 days. Everybody was great, but I especially had a great time drinking with your mom. Well … until she passed out at 3 PM in the afternoon, and missed the rest of the festival.

NUMBER NINE
I’m glad you finally got to use that “AS SEEN ON TV” air couch you bought two years ago. It has been in your closet for a really long time, it’s great that you were able to break the seal and use it at BottleRock.

NUMBER EIGHT
I’m thrilled that you brought a blanket to sit on. It just sucks that people wanted to stand and watch the show in front of and on all sides of you. On another note, who were those jerks that stepped on your blanket, RUDE!

NUMBER SEVEN
It’s a good thing you were there to support your friend when her boyfriend wasn’t treating her right. I can’t believe he bought her Rosé instead of Zinfandel. She doesn’t deserve to be treated like that. (REAL ARGUMENT)

NUMBER SIX
Glad your husband was able to watch the Giants game in the Coors Light Sports Bar at BottleRock, while you and all your friends were outside in the sun. It would have sucked if he missed one game.

NUMBER FIVE
Awesome that your friends could get a photo in that metal O. It’s just too bad you didn’t get the whole word. Perhaps people can just guess that it was taken in the hole of the O in the word LOVE!?

NUMBER FOUR
Glad you finally got to meet your hero Martha Stewart at the William Sonoma stage! Her and that white guy from Seattle that raps on the radio were pretty funny. However that young kid can’t cook, and he just doesn’t understand your Martha’s humor.

NUMBER THREE
It’s been all business all year … It’s great that your friends finally got to relax, take off their shirts, and show their bods! That one guy just looked so hot … no like literally hot. A wolf hat in the Napa sun?

NUMBER TWO
The view from the large screen in the food court was amazing. You got to watch that one band, eat grill cheese and didn’t have to stand with all the other drunk people. At times the sound from the actual stage even made it over the wall to where you were sitting … it sounded so real.

NUMBER ONE
… oh yeah, before I forget … It was also pretty cool that your dad got to book the music at BottleRock on Saturday, Tom Petty was AMAZING. On the other hand, the young people really seemed to enjoy all the other bands like Modest Mouse, Maroon 5, Warren G, The Roots, and Foo Fighters. I guess it made nice background noise while you and all your girlfriends talked really loud.

I do not sing, play the drums, clarinet, guitar, piano or harmonic ... but I have tried! My passion for music began when I was still a pre-teen begging my parents for my first drum set. After a year’s worth of lessons, it was clear that I wasn’t very good at drums. So I moved on, joined the school band, and tried my hand at the clarinet. Again after a year’s worth of lessons and hard work I was without much skill. This continued through elementary school and into college with voice lessons, guitar lessons and finally piano. It turns out that while I could recognize good music; I lacked the talent to make it.

Now I'm broke, beautiful and writing about music for Stuart...
