A Guide to Your Summer Oasis

Article Rachel Murphy | Photography Joel Schneider

If there’s one thing that I love in the summertime, it’s a cold glass of rosé, a nibble of strong cheese, and a bit of shade with a breeze.

Late in the evening, festival goers started gravitating toward Blip Coffee and dessert items from Blue Bird Bistro and Trago. “It’s a bacon-bourbon jam, on a puff pastry, with icing like a toaster strudel,” explained Trago chef-owner Kandi Kerns. “So simple, but so terrible — like, a million calories in a single bite!” Clearly this is one of those cases when terrible meant delicious...
