This thread is why I love Eric. Just say'n.
Although I'm wondering why no one has suggested the DPW bar, or Black Hole yet.
I have a little bit of Savannah with me. Shhh...

The Naked pub crawl is a very good way to spend an afternoon naked and drunk.

I found the best bars in BRC are the ones you don't know you heading at till you get there.

I think you have to have more experience under your belt to tackle those places. Not for greenfoots.

Dusty Swan for a relaxed bar. Great place to duck into during a big blow.
Suck 'n Fuck for some of the stiffest drinks you've ever had.
Red Rooster for some great conversation.
Frogma for a partying happy hour.
Kantina Apok for...well hell I can't remember why..stumble, stumble, fall.
Barbie Death camp. You gotta have one of Wild Mans Bloody Mary, and some of Doc's Absinthe.

But by far, my favorite was the Boobie Bar... :(


Don't be sad...we're still here! Under a new name (thank you Witness Protection) and slightly shuffled management, we're back with old comrades, new theme nights, and not so far off the beaten path this year. Put us back on your playa bucket list!

Mine for sure was revafuckalution. Chili area with couches and big pillows, great ipa on tap, and the music was rock, metal and just all around a good change from the dub/techno. Hope they will be back again this year.

I have always enjoyed the duck pond. It's hard for anyone to tell you which bar is best because there is a best bar for everyone! That's the beauty of burning man :D my all time favorite bars end up being in random places that I can never find again. So my advice to you is... Find YOUR best bar by exploring places you normally wouldn't. Happy burn!

Tom would agree with you on that one. Every time he tried to take me there though they were closed :(

I had that shirt for a couple years, then one day, I couldn't find it. :(

Mine just said "Irish Yoga" and had all those same pictures, didn't have the Burning Man or Camp part.

For first thing in the morning, it was either Hair of the Dog or Penguin Bar with me.

I did a little karaoke at the Penguin Bar, dedicating a rousing chorus of 'Smuggler's Blues' to the Pershing County Sheriff's Department.

Actually, Dusty Swan is an Irish Pub and Celtic Cinema. They showed 'Boondock Saints' and the sequel back to back on one night if I recall correctly. Ludo, who runs the camp, is a first-rate individual. Even a few Irish burners thought that he 'did it right'.

Bummer. That's one if the reasons this question is so hard. Even if you get a completed list... Chances are you won't be able to find said bar or it won't be open if you do.

So, if you just turned 21 and you're a doctor, is this some sort of Doogie Hauwser thing?

Hey 21 year old,

Come by Champagne Lounge for Delicious Champagne. I have to say it's my favorite bar, but I help run it so I may be a little biased.
We card religiously so bring your ID.
We do vodka stuff too; but that's boring, until it's not.
