This Friday, June 16th marks the 50th anniversary of The Monterey Pop Festival. That was the first rock ‘n roll outdoor festival and it really kicked off the famous 1967, “Summer of Love.” So of course there’s a half a dozen Monterey Pop Festival links below and then you can read the MBIP Coming Attractions for what’s happening here next week.

Tomorrow we feature another one of our special vegetarian Saturday Night’s out on the town. This week we sampled a special after hours vegetarian Mexican breakfast at Hacienda El Mirador and I went there with my vegetarian co-host, Ben. But it really turned into a party as we were later joined by Amber, Joe, Danielle, Brent and Tallis who got a treat! Tuesday is our 50th week in our year of the sandwich tour and tune in to find out where the sandwich was sampled this week. Wednesday I think I’m doing some kind of a thing on Jumer's, I’m not totally sure about that one yet, it’s kind of a work in progress. Thursday I’m getting framed at Technicraft and as usual I have no idea about what I’m going to be putting up on Friday. Right now I have to go to the bathroom, so we’ll see you all tomorrow for another exciting and thrill-packed week here on MBIP!
