New Snailface album from the incredibly nerdy doods in Kowloon Walled City, described as "1983 Genesis doing songs about camping." There needs to be more albums about camping and trees, IMHO.

Tomato avocado salad at Miss Ollie's.
Homemade soda at Lungomare (spike it!).
Gluten-free chocolate-chip/cherry cookie at Sweet Bar. — K.R.
