Getting Real...At The Whole Foods Parking Lot

Maybe you've figured out by now, we here at Gastronomista have some deep Colorado roots.  Yep, that's right.  We've got some hippie in us.  So it's no lie when we tell you that we grew up in health food grocery stores; teenage years spent pursuing cheese counters, aisles of dry goods stocked with organic grains, and flirting with all of those bearded cashiers and cheese mongers.  Ah, those were the days.

We are tickled by this video by Fog and Smog - which explains all the ails of trying to find a parking space at Whole Foods.  We feel your pain, Fog and Smog.  Things can get rather aggresive at the Red Hook Fairway.  But now we've got your track all lined up and ready to go when we pull in next time.

... Im ridin' slow in my Prius...
all leather, tinted windows... you cant see us!!
Everybody's trying to park, you can feel the tension
I'm in electric mode... can't even hear the engine (Shhhhhhh)

Without further ado, Whole Foods Parking Lot:


But us veteran health food shoppers know, before Whole Foods there was Wild Oats.  And before Wild Oats there was Alfalfa's.  Ah yes, nostalgia.  

Leftover Salmon performed a song for KBCO Studio C Volume 2 in 1992 called Alfalfa's.  A witty diddy about wanting to work at Alfalfa's and enjoy wheat-grass lemonade, spinach yogurt, and the like.  We date ourselves; those were the days before all the cool kids started brewing their own Kombucha.

Thank goodness for corporate embetterment - Alfalfa's is back!  So Fog and Smog, we recommend you drive your Prius on over to Boulder.  Maybe the parking is better there?
