Oh, I like that idea. During the days might be great to have fresh squeezed lemonade. Not sure where your going to get fresh lemons in a barren landscape though. haha

At night, maybe something warm, hot chocolate. For the sober burners....

I like Play-ritas or Kahlua/soy cream. yum yum. You can skip the little umbrellas, they will become MOOP. :)

[quote="lucky420"]Well I'm not sure I am posting in the right place, so mods feel free to put me in my place. Okay this is what I want to do; we would like to offer "a shot in the dark" We plan to go out on the playa at night and set up our lawn chairs, wagon w/supplies & lit up sign. We will offer shots of booze to others and a little trinket with our slogan on it, "I took a Shot in the Dark at Burningman 2011" We will have disposable shot glasses, limes/salt for tequila night, this will all go in a 5 gallon bucket so that we can take your used shot glass and dispose of it. We will probably also offer this from our camp on some nights. Has anyone done this before?[/quote]
Sound great hopefully some one has come up with some innovative idea! Lets give a try to this.

What a treasure that shot glass will be, for whoever is lucky enough to get one! I will be searching the playa every night until I track you down, anyway. 8) Don't know if I'll ever find you, but, I will give it my best shot!

Chilled mint water (e.g. Metro Mint, or similar brands) is really delightful on the playa.

Ok, one of this years goals...hunt down Shot in the Dark. :D

Sounds fun!

Sadly, I almost never achieve any of my Burning Man goals. It's still fun to have them, though!

It WOULD be way cool to find you guys but that's super nice of you to bring glasses to the MnG. :) What a fun idea, I'm still jealous of it, haha. :D

OOOH, I do have an idea I can share that someone did this last weekend. At the OR Country Fair this nice burner girl hulled a big box of largish strawberries and was walking around with a bottle of cake-flavored vodka and strawberries and giving people vodka-filled strawberry shots (small shots obviously). SO YUMMY, I am so going to ninja that idea. :P
