Re: Bartenders...Best Cocktails for Playa?

A food permit is needed if you're serving mixers that include fresh ingredients or incorporate what's traditionally thought of as food handling (mixing up juice concentrates, etc). If you're popping the cap on shelf-stable mixers (OJ, cranberry juice, etc) you do not need to worry about it. More in...

Re: Bartenders...Best Cocktails for Playa?

I think if you open them right then and there, but if you open it and put it away then you might be in trouble. You have to keep it cold enough and in a container that doesn't contaminate it. This is logic, and the sense there was an issue--but of course, I was never behind the bar, so I didn't hav...

Re: Bartenders...Best Cocktails for Playa?

That "Cactus Juice" sounds pretty nifty...I never thought of blending Amaretto and Tequila together on the Playa.

Re: Bartenders...Best Cocktails for Playa?

So been doing some quick research and these two classic beauties popped out from the PDT cocktail book. Might as well share them with everyone to get your thoughts. Algonquin: 2 oz. Bonded Rittenhouse Rye 3/4 oz Dry Vermouth 3/4 oz Pineapple Juice Stir with ice and strain into a chilled glass. Archa...

Re: Visual artist + comp sci couple from NY looking for camp

Hey... Just checking in with my other camp mates, but its possible we might have space for you two. No dues and we are loosely organized, but we will welcome anyone with an open heart and willing to add a little extra to our group. As for the whole "paying dues" and "no water" thing...most veteran b...

Bartenders...Best Cocktails for Playa?

Question for all you serious cocktail slinging burners out there: What have you had success with at your camp in years past? Any recipes that worked particularly well or turned into a complete disaster? I've been coming over cocktail books looking for a good "Signature Cocktail" to serve at our camp...

Re: Where could I buy vegan food in the US?

To be totally straight with you, RAINBOW GROCERY in San Francisco may be the Greatest grocery store on the planet for Vegans. It has the largest bulk food section I've ever seen, and can easily cover your needs for Burning Man. Sounds like the poster is looking to cover all their needs in the minimu...

Re: Dont have a camp? Join us!!!

A huge shout out to everyone who made this the best camp of 2013...especially for Solar, Shazam, Cyanide, Time Warp, and the whole Long Beach crew, the Wyoming Crew, and everyone who joined us over the week. Big thanks to Key, Baloo, Kermit, Airbender, Simba...everybody! As for all the veterans who ...

Excellent! I'm getting excited.

Re: Dr. Dust's 'V' style Rebar Method- 10 steps to perfect V

So, is the consensus that 10-inch nails won't cut it? I'm a virgin burner, and just picked up nails over re-bar since they are small and no-fuss. I've only got a little solo backpacking tent to secure, but just want to double check before packing up for the Playa.

Re: Dont have a camp? Join us!!!

Any other virgins coming in on the 26th? I'm gonna be in Reno from Saturday till Monday, and figured maybe we can arrange transportation in when gates open. Might make it easier for us all to organize the camp.

t.t.totally stoked!!

Re: Water stock up?

What about arranging for a passing RV or Truck heading to Burning Man to carry two of your water bladders in from Gerlach? You should be able to find someone with a little extra space for a few containers. Plus, I'm certain everyone driving around your motorcycle would rather you are riding safely i...

Saturday 24th afternoon Reno shopping?

Hey ho, you beautiful people! Anyone with a car up for gathering supplies in Reno the Saturday before heading for the Burn? I'm a virgin burner flying into Reno midday on August 24th, and was hoping to do some last minute resource shopping in the city (Home Despot, REi, Savemart, whatever). Don't ha...
