How to prepare for Electric Daisy: Drink water, try not to die
by Andrew Kiraly | posted June 20, 2011
Gee, with all the gloomish, hand-wringy foreboding surrounding the upcoming Electric Daisy Carnival -- drugged and dehydrated teens dropping like drugged and dehydrated flies! -- you almost get the impression that the ravey concert bash is less, well, a ravey concert bash than some malignant, kid-killing force that just happens to have a danceable beat. Muahaha!, etc.
As if to buttress that depiction, there's the roundup from the Dallas version of the event, which went off this weekend. From the Dallas Observer blog:
By 1 a.m. this morning, at least one attendee at Saturday night's Electric Daisy Carnival in Fair Park had been declared dead. At least another two dozen had been hospitalized.
That's prompted County Commissioner Steve Sisolak to call for taking a second look at the party. In the meantime, some possibly life-saving advice: Drink plenty of water and avoid the funny pills.
Pick up your Desert Companion today at one of these Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or Jamba Juice locations.
