Trying to find a meal plan!!

Postby rsoul » Wed Aug 13, 2008 9:52 am

Hi all,
A few of us (2-4) are out in the.. er, dust... trying to find a meal plan. Our camp can't do one this year and our second option (Benjamin/divinenurishment) has just canceled his plans :-(

Does anyone know of any open meal plans to non-camp members? you'd be helping us out loads!

C'mon, really? WTF is this, day care? Bring your own food. Cook it. Eat it.

what is a meal plan? Does that mean you are wanting someone else to plan your meals for you???

This has to be a troll.

If not, I hope your lame asses starve.

stay home - watch the burn on Saturday night on CurrentTV.com order Pizza and pepsi from a deliver store - then kick yourself for not being intelligent enough to bring simple food and other basic supplies.

That's true. Just leave those cans of spaghettios outside during the day and you'll have a hot meal come sundown.

Yes, if you've been a good little burner and leave spaghetti-Os out in front of your tent before happy hour, Chef Boyardee flies down in his magic Le Car, and replaces them with a delicious, piping hot meal at sundown. :D

...but if you've been a bad little burner, he rapes your mom.
Irony. You're soaking in it.

Just look for Cafeteria camp. Take the complimentary Burning Man Shuttle service from Center Camp, get off at the man, and then take the moving walkway out just past the Arby's. It's right across the street from the free showers and tents.

I heard the DPW is doing a meal plan this year. Cash only and bring your own utensils (knife, fork, plate, mug - recyclables okay). Three bucks for breakfast, five for lunch and dinner. Meals start promptly at 7:00 am, noon, and 7:00 pm, first come first served. Line closes two hours later.

I don't know where they'll let people in, so just show up with your utensils and ask where their cafeteria is.

You may have asked a question that made everyone want to mock you, but I still love you.

Wow.. thanks for all that

Postby rsoul » Fri Aug 15, 2008 12:50 pm

Clearly you all have the burning man spirit alive and well... thanks for all the constructive advice...

Actually, FYI, meal plans are ways to collaborate on sharing food, resources, and saving time to enjoy the playa - not to mention a great way to meet other people. 100,000 people/4X3 bottles of propane = shitloads of wasted gas and throw-away tanks... but GREAT idea. I wish I had as much time on my hands as you guys...

phil, Angry[M]onkeySalad - thanks for the friendly replies.

Hope to see you all on the playa... I'll be the one with the Taco Bell wrappers in my pocket.

rsoul, drop by this page:
http://www.cieux.com/bm/quickMeals.html
It's links to various companies that make food that requires no cooking or just boiling water to prepare. HeaterMeals, MREs and the like have self-heating food (water and magnesium filings create heat). Other foods are freeze dried and you pour boiling water into the pouch then eat out of that; some are the kind you drop in boiling water to heat. There are also survival rations, which are sort of cakes which provide a huge number of calories - just open and eat. Not filling, but you get your daily vitamins and such.

Divine Nourishment - Get a Clue

Postby Chris the Elder » Fri Aug 15, 2008 2:01 pm

Guys -
Had to register and reply - Love the negativity - give me a break.

Divine Nourishment, said meal plan, was one of the best things going last year, and Benjamin did a fantastic job. Having one person control the menu and then divide responsibilities between those that participated (i.e. cook and clean in four hour shifts) was really community in action. The same money that was spent individually for much lamer meals was pooled for some gourmet ones instead. Very much similar to any communal meal at a camp but open beyond a single camp's borders. Those that didn't want to concentrate on meals and instead put their energies toward running a camp were extremely grateful.

Haters - we all pitched in. It wasn't like getting served from a roach coach - get a clue. Go take your cold Tastee Bites and your orange fake fur and retreat to your tents.
