The Pier, Kickstarter project is live

Postby fbcota » Sun May 01, 2011 11:07 pm

Hola Seaside Denizens,

The Pier Kickstarter is now live http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1705373243/the-pier-burning-man-2011-art-installation

Like every other Burning Man project this is a labor of love and me some help to make it happen. I think we have some pretty cool rewards, life a 7+ course dinner on the end of The Pier Wednesday during the Burn.

Sorry for starting a new thread, figured no-one would find it in the old one.

You had me until you started begging for money on the internets.

Bwahahahaha, Mr. Modesty, I have been waiting for this for a looooong time.

I want to sit on the end of your pier and drink whiskey, just like I did on my Dad's little pier on the day of his funeral, and tell my dear father about all the wonders of Black Rock City.

And I want to be wearing that hoodie! Yeah I bit for it 8) may be all I'm biting for a while :shock: lemee see, lunch money for how many days??? Oh well it'll help with my fitness plan...

:D :D :D

I don't usually drink whiskey, but I am bringing a bottle of Jamesons, to drink on the pier, while thinking of my friends who have long since left Burning Man behind.

Someone needs to publish a "pairings" menu. See the temple with gin x and the big jig rig with tequila y.

Actually, please don't donate to The Pier. We have all the funding we need with our kickstarter success.

Please, fund some of the other amazing projects :)

This is probably the best idea I have read in the past 7.34 months.
