Friends, live music and good food on a sunny Saturday afternoon; does that sound good to you? Well, it did to me too, so I headed over to the Junction Music Festival with a pre-arranged meet-up with some friends. Well, that was the plan. It was the plan until they encountered tequila on their way to the festival. All bets are off when my friends find tequila so that meant that I was at the festival alone.
Luckily, it wasn't long before I encountered some familiar faces and had some awesome peeps to share the festival with. We wandered around and saw a few bands before the rumbling in our tummies was drowning out even the loudest of guitar solos, so we decided to stop for something to eat. There are many delicious restaurants along that strip of Dundas West, but we decided to let our noses be the guide and take us to someplace a little out of the ordinary.
And that's when we wandered through a small shop and into a backyard for some really tasty BBQ ribs and peameal sandwiches. A grill, a hot plate a couple of coolers and three picnic tables as just about all there was room for, but it was enough. The vibe was relaxed, well expect for that one guy doing all the cooking and it was nice to just sit under a tree and enjoy this mammoth sandwich. (This dude cooks up a storm at the junction flea too, so be sure to check him out)
After gorging ourselves, we headed back out to the festival to dance off all of those extra calories. Not even the rain could hold this party down. I'd say the first year of this festival was a great success. I can't wait to see how it develops in the years to come.
