Law Enforcement Bman 2001

In the near future we’ll post the results of our past 2 meetings with the BLM and other agency “cooperators”. (the most recent of which was last Friday in Reno) We’re pleased with the overall outcome, except for some financial issues that are yet to be worked out, but suffice to say we’ve been put in a cash position that makes us none too happy. More to come.


JULY Flambe Lounge

We’re making plans for a big July Flambe Lounge event. Dates under consideration are July 7th and July 21st. Likely location is Pier 35 in San Francisco. We’ll know in a week which day. We’d prefer the 7th (works with the 7 Ages theme on 7/7!), but it’s dependent upon the arrival of a ship the morning after the event. This would force an early morning take-down after a long day/night, so we’re still waiting for word. HEADS UP TO ARTISTS, ART CARS, AND THEMECAMPERS. This is an amazing space. We will have lots of room for art, toys, art cars, and self expression of the varied kind. Fire performance is also allowed. We will probably NOT have a stage, however. If you’d like to help us make this a great re- compression party please email your thoughts and contributing ideas to flambelounge(at)burningman(dot)com.

“Magicglasses reveal that things on the playa are exactly as interesting as you think they are late night rave nomads and twilight’s silent wanderers welcome to walk the tunnel of optic revelation. glitter sparkle optic tingle spangle blink and shiver. myriad funny accents confirm global glasses conspiracy. eye doctors in endless honeymoon shocker. four eyes are better than two, three years are better than two and third time extra lucky number twenty three. two continent’s worth of magic journeys dancing to what light sounds like blink and you’ll miss it so don’t…”
