Yep, I said “tailgate.” Not sure if it’s true, but let’s say it anyway — The Santa Fe Opera is the only opera in the world with bona fide tailgating.

Here’s how it works:

Opera-goers arrive at least 2 hours before the performance, park their cars, and commence setting up the most elaborate feasts in the parking lot. No expense is spared. We’re talking wooden tables, tents, champagne stands, table cloths, and other miscellaneous finery.

Sounds like fun! (Although if I ate a lot and drank before an opera I’d probably either fall asleep or have my RLS act up.)
