Maybe pointed straight down, so you have a hole in the playa?

There was a set of these in the middle of the playa last year. It was very cool to stand above it and look down.

I'm thinking about making the Playa's Smallest Bar. It would be fashioned out of a 6 x 4 grow-tent, made to look like a giant speaker, there would be room inside for a small mixing console and a bar which could fit about 2 at a time. Its all mylar inside, so lazers have an awesome effect. Thoughts?

:lol: Your little bar sounds fantastic! I have a little bar cart that I wheel around at night on the playa called "Shot in the DarK" It's really fun and a great way to meet people. Hope you do this...
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Cool. Of course my first thought was I can make one smaller, like a one-on-one bar. Which then made me think of a confessional.

Now I want to make a confessional bar.

You confess and your penance is the drink of the bartenders choosing.

Haha, quite right. Sometimes I forget that people are new when they've become familiar. :lol:

. . . A friend of mine once did something vaguely similar; walked the playa as "Father Martini", wearing a bandolier of martini glasses and carrying a shaker, some ice, ingredients. Made martinis for people as they walked along, saying "Bless you my child" when he gave them away, and God knows what else.

Drinks and sacrilege never get old. :D

That is awesome! Actually, I could see my priest doing that... after RCIA (Rites of Christian Iniation for Adults [Roman Catholic]) my priest, Father John, always suggested we go out to the bar afterwards as a group. Then again, this is also the same priest who said during a homily, "God doesn't care if you go out and get wasted at the football game, because God is not a pussy!" ...I love Father John.

@Ugly Dougly, if you like this sorta stuff, you might want to check out http://www.halloweenmonsterlist.info/. I'm a bit of a Halloween enthusaist and it always gives me some great ideas.

Great photos, btw, Dougly! The man dressed as the 'Man--and the one dressed as the Village People--just blow me away.

I wonder how many people oriented themselves weirdly after seeing blue neon Man at a distance? :lol:
