Off the Grid is sort of like a food court for nomads, gatherings of extreme culinary variety, with live music and full bars. If you get there early enough, you’ll be able to snack on treats from the Koja Kitchen, the Fat Face truck, Curry Up Now, and many more. There is also a Prix Fixe option, which costs $40 per person and must be reserved beforehand. The event is BYOB, meaning Bring Your Own Blanket.

Video Pick Of The Week..

Anita O’Day: The Life Of A Jazz Singer.. Before her death in November 2006 at age 86, Anita O’Day, one of jazz’s most complex and rhythmic vocalists, smiled on the music world for six decades. This film portrait captures all the magic that took this sly Chicago native, a white girl who could hold her own against Billie and Ella, from Gene Krupa’s bandstand to solo stardom. Film footage of Anita O’Day’s appearance at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, immortalized in the 1960 documentary Jazz on a Summer’s Day and excerpted here, may be the defining moment of the post-bebop era.
