Party mess on deep playa, art?

Postby zenseed75 » Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:20 pm

I was wondering if anyone else saw the candle lit, covered, long section of tables with white table cloths and it looked like a model runway on the end. The tables were littered with beer cans, decorations, and plates with half eaten food on them. Was this someones art project or a big pile of moop? It was interesting to look at and wonder. Anyone have pictures?

I saw this being set up really late in the event . . . Wednesday or Thursday. I would really like to know what it was. The people setting it up looked really busy and cranky, so I didn't ask.

But my first thought was: "At long last--the Food Court!"

"It's someone's birthday!" is what I heard biking by it on Wednesday.

When we came upon it on Thursday afternoon,there was a lot peeps just sitting , chatting and drinking.It was a nice spot to catch your breath while exploring the deep playa. I didn't notice any moop at the time or any plates of half eaten food as art.

Kinda reminded me of the Last Super......

Turns out it was a NY foodie event. Apparently, with commercial sponsors.

What an unfortunate commercial exploitation of the playa. Very disappointing.

It was cleaner than you describe when I found it, but was still quite the mess. Empty bottles of (I think) Peligrino, and just a bunch of random garbage.

See...this part makes me sad. I think it was a wonderful concept and then it was ruined by leaving it a mess. (Unless it was cleaned up later by the organizer. I can't imagine putting that sort of effort into a project that was to receive national publicity and not take the small additional step of cleaning up after themselves.)

Yep, that was it! It must have been after everyone left when I saw it. The candles were still going and it was trashed. I did not see anyone there cleaning up. Glad a big gust of wind didn't come through.

I would have evicted everyone on the spot, just for the long table layout. Terribly hackneyed.

It's just sad that a) it turned out to be a marketing maneuver and b) they didn't even have the decency to clean up after themselves.

They did have a setup crew. Does anyone know for sure that they didn't have a cleanup crew that came later?

Trite.
The same comment has been made for years now, every time an article or story appears in any mainstream publication.
Last I heard, Burning Man has managed to survive intact.

Don't boo the day tour buses, that's an important part of the relationship with the local community. The BMOrg provides day tours/art tours to seniors and I think a couple other segments of the regional population. I think there's a value in letting them see some of the amazing art and creativity at the event.

I didn't see many seniors in either of the two groups gathering in chairs around the busses. If they want to see our event and art they should get out and see it then, not sit in lawn chairs.

Look at these moop-wearers :roll:



+100,000

looks like MOOPing entitlement and feather wearing asshats...it's time for me time to write these people:
At Zoo Camp, Krug Champagne's Carl Heline, Phil Winser and Ben Towill (co-founders of Silkstone & Fat Radish NY) begin the three day build of the dinner table.

boycott Krug Shitpagne, just for starters... :twisted:

This is where the bullhorn with built in siren comes in handy... It would have disrupted their little party if there was some crazed person screaming about the feathered headdresses and other MOOP atrocities.
