It’s that time of year again: Burning Man, the annual music festival-art show-happening in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada starts on August 26, 2018.

And now we are two. Our second birthday here at Dandelion Chandelier is August 1, and to mark the occasion, we’re sharing some of the top-performing posts in our short history. And also some posts that we’re just really proud of, or that were especially fun to write (and, we hope, fun to read). Join the party! We’ve been focusing on one topic per day as we count down to our big day. We’ve shared top posts in Travel and Adventure; Food and Drink; Fashion and Shopping; and Sports and Fitness. Next up? Culture and the arts.
