Re: Fears for tiers

.... It seemed to me to be more about offering an incentive to people to buy tickets many months in advance ... Bingo! I think that's all it has ever been about. If I remember correctly, they almost went bankrupt in 98 and didn't know if they would be coming back in 99. Maybe it had something to do...

Re: Cheap Booze?

I always thought that there is usually an overabundance of alcohol, and not enough mixers to make it palatable? I Agree with you BBadger, I always end up bringing back the hard stuff. I like Gin & Tonic for myself, but found bars don't want tonic water. What mixers are the most popular on the playa...

Re: The Pier

What I loved about the Pier is that it could only make sense at Burning Man. Can't believe how much fun I had on it. Everyone seem to get it instantly. Never seen such a great interactive crowd in years and this is coming from a 14 year jaded veteran.... Please bring it back next year. THANK YOU !!!

Great place to write a paper about. It's so full of contradictions...trying to fulfill so much and on the very edge of failing at everything. I like to call it "barely-controlled chaos".
