Best Place for People-Watching

From the 02/22/2010 edition



You won't find a better venue for voyeurism than ComFest. Practically every sort of person turns out to sip beer from souvenir mugs, discover new local music and socialize in the sun (and, of course, dodge the nearly annual downpour). Seeing stiff-necked suburban yuppies unwinding next to body-painting hippies is one of the distinct pleasures of this cultural kaleidoscope.
