(AllHipHop News) Pharrell’s new festival Something in the Water kicked off on Friday and is taking over the oceanfront in Virginia Beach.
What can we expect? Dank food.
The Virginian Pilot reports there will be a tractor-trailer full of food arriving in the parking lot of Alkaline restaurant, one of the 10 local restaurants chosen to sell food to the 35,000 festivals-goers over the weekend.
Chef and owner Kevin Ordonez states, "I think I ordered like 8,000 steamed buns. Maybe more. I can't even remember at this point. A lot."
The shipment includes canola oil, chicken tenders, fries, tots, and Duke's mayo.
In addition, Pharrell and Pusha T add their own favorites to the menu.
Both artists chose a Chesapeake Jamaican spot called Island Jerk Hut, whose owner Richard Downer has catered to both artists in the past.
Another restaurant they favor is the 50-year-old local chicken and seafood chain titled Feather N Fin.
