Ah yes, the Coachella traffic jam.

Not going to Coachella? Don't be bummed out -- there are plenty of ways to have similar kinds of fun at home right here in the Bay Area. Don't believe us? Just work your way through this list 10 Coachella-simulating activities, and see if you don't feel better about not going to the real deal. (And if you are going, read our guide to the festival performers.) Here goes :

10. Go on a camping trip this weekend on a large lawn or a big-box store parking lot. Rain or shine, of course. Or, if you don't like camping, invite eight or 10 friends over to your studio apartment, share your bed with three of them, and have the rest sleep on the floor. (You should probably sleep on the floor for a night also, fairness and all.)

You could just do this this weekend.

9. For brunch this weekend, go wait at Zazie, Brenda's, Bake Sale Betty's, and wherever else draws a big outdoor line. Then go to the DMV, find the longest line possible, and stand there, preferably with your iPod blasting really loud. If you must sit, sit on the floor.


8. Go out to a bar, and whatever drinks you buy, pay double for each one. Then leave a generous tip. You're supporting your local bartenders, and wasn't that fun?


7. Get in a car and find yourself the biggest traffic jam you can. Now, get stuck in it. Stay there at least three times longer than you feel you should have to.
