I think this is what I would try--keeping 'em reasonably cool and wrapped tight.

This is probably the route I'll go. But, I still believe experiments will be required over the next couple months... purely for scientific reasons, PURELY!

I was kidding. By my standards, almost nothing goes bad. I suspect 5 days in the heat will not be great for them. Listen to everyone but me :)

OK! Good to know! I'm in the same boat for the most part- "Does it stink?"-No, "Do you see mold, fungus, or maggots?"-No... Yeah its safe!

I've never had the "cake batter" variety, (or I didn't know) but thats some good shit!
I've always had it as more of a peanut butter and chocolate sort of mix. The peanut better and chocolate kind really does look like dog chow.

We have a type of organic, BgHfree, processed style cheese up here that is so flippin awesome they make a cream style and a cheddar style. It is less salty tasting and has an expiration date. Wish I knew the name of it. But it makes the best mac. but what is also really good is Bacon Bits! Now wait! I know you wanted the Vegetarian stuff; most "Artificial" Bacon bits are Soy meal and toasted barley malt, dye( < usually paprika) and salt. add baby peas and herbs and your stylin'.

It managed to get to April - dammit!

OK, we need to start thinking about drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

Be great to get some interesting mixed sodas along this year.

Also, could our regulars please start encouraging new ePlayans to visit this thread and get them all excited about the M&G. (It really was quite fabulous last year...)

I've been absent from the real playa for the last 4 years (shit happens, sometimes a lot of it) but this year I WILL be there. The Land Yacht used to be famous for serving margaritas. I wouldn't want to tarnish it's reputation. The blender shall be active. Let there be frosty goodness!

And of course all eplayans are welcome to come out cruising!

a couple of years ago, I spent a few hours talking, laughing and general visiting with a boat, I thought was you.......I see it wasn't. My friends found me and led me home (see stories of getting "dosed" on the playa).

So, it would seem we have worked out our M&G conflicts. You changed to Wednesday, so we change to Thursday, it's all good!

Should I bring Absinthe Jello Shots (hopefully sans finger cock) again this year? I dunno what else would be quite as unique,,,

YES!!!
Though, I don't know what Finger Cock is? I assuming its the fact you have to run your finger around the edge between the jello and the cup? Thus adding playa dust and what ever sorta junk (junk, cock, haha) you have on your hands.

I've always been found of Jello shots made in those little white cups that fast food joints have, for putting ketchup, BBQ, and other sauces in. Because you can roll up the rim, unfold, and peel back the cup sort of like a muffin/cupcake. Though, if memory serves the absinth jello shots were not really firm so it might not work.

Postby Trishntek » Thu Apr 04, 2013 9:31 am

That's actually what I use, they have a nice lid on them just to keep the dust out and easier for storage in a cooler.

The finger cock was due to my injured finger which I had covered with a realistic penis extender. The jello shots look like the product of said appendage and I was kinda playing with that schtick during the party last year.

I've tried using agar to make them firmer in the heat of the day, but the texture leaves much to be desired.

So anyway, put me down for Absinthe Jello Shots!

I thought you use the little plastic cups, no?
Sorry, I should have been more descriptive, I mean little paper cups.
I used to think "Screw taking an ass load of pics at Burning man- Live in the moment!" But apparently I need to start documenting more, for confirmation/correction of memories.

I had TnT's absinthe Jello shots last year and lived to tell about it. I know Yggy did the same. Though I'm not a fan of Jello shots in general (little known fact: Tom Lehrer is the alleged "inventor" of the Jello shot), I do have a weakness for absinthe. So there you go, sacrifices sometimes must be made.

Absinthe in any way, shape or form is always good. TnT's jello shots were great.

Due to its popularity last year, I am planning to bring Honey Bourbon again - unless I find something even more interesting.

If I can work out the logistics I also plan to bring Chocolate Unicorn Turds as well.

my veg mac'ncheez turned out absolutely stupendous! however, after a freeze and a re-heat, not so much.

i am still determined to bring some sort of substantial food. a real meal, if you will. it may be the only one i make on playa!
