NEW: Local Burning Man Tickets & Rideshare Google Doc

The Man burns in 74 days & that means plans are starting to form around rides and rideshares and people will be looking for tickets and other will realize they can’t make it & need to sell theirs.

In order to facilitate local connections for rides & tickets to Burning Man, the following Google Document has been created. Anyone with the link can access and edit the doc, but it is not searchable/public.

Please use the appropriate sheet to post your need or offer (there are 4 in the doc).

Burner Skool Hands on!

Hey, folks! Weather looks good for some outdoor activities on Wednesday!
This class is going to be oodles of fun! We’ll be making a delicious Playa meal, talking about dressing up in a leave-no-trace way, and how to make a wonderfully comfortable home in an entirely uncomfortable environment. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Make Music Vancouver – Yaletown & Gastown
Thurs June 21
Imagine Yaletown and Gastown…

Then Imagine, dozens of artists invading the streets of yaletown. Classical musicians, jazz musicians, salsa, rock, folk…A beautiful and passionate chaos.

Guess what? It’s happening. The concept of the event started in France when the minister of culture asked all kinds of musicians amateurs and professionals to take over the streets of France. He wanted to see them play on every corner of the cities. Train stations, Malls, parks etc. ‘Make Music’ has now spread to 400 cities across the world. And Vancouver is one of them.

Last year, it was a huge success in Gastown. This year it is extending to Yaletown. It’s completely free! June 21st between 5 and 10 pm in the streets (indoor after 10pm).
All you have to do is show up, and have fun.
