Do you have a date for Coachella? No, no, we don't mean someone to carry you after you pass out (from the heat) or lift you up so you can get a better view of ACDC shredding—or Zac Efron, or a Jonas brother.

We're talking about the dates you eat. Did you know that most all of the nation's dates are grown in the Coachella Valley? A whopping 95%!! So while tweens in bikinis and celebrities in thousand-dollar ripped shorts are "listening to music" and Instagraming in the valley, you can pretend you're there too: Don't watch the livestream, silly—instead make these 10 dishes that feature dates. These edibles actually taste good.
