The Pickled Jellyfish bar and lounge at Burning Man 2012 was a huge success!!
We are still clearing the dust and cleaning up our things, but have come back with a massive glow. The pickles were a major hit and the wine such a treat for the few hundred patrons who visited the lounge. To those who supported without being able to experience the playa this year; to those who came by and shared the Pickled Jellyfish experience; and to all of you that supported the effort that did stop by, Thank you!
The jellyfish bar was an awesome, swaying creature of comfort with shade and padded bench seating for a few dozen. That all became a stadium of comfort for our camp mate, Jason Starr's, mind-blowing 2-story fire tornado. It was the perfect storm of intention and space.
We will send out a survey shortly to get addresses for fun gifts!
The Pickled Jellyfish crew loves you and can not express enough gratitude for bringing such pleasure to the horizon of the playa this year. It was epic and we look forward to sharing the wares with you, the supporters, soon.
Chrystal, Daniel, Anais, & the entire Dusty Lady crew
Wow, that was exciting! Thank you everyone, we came in on our goal with only a few minutes to spare. We could not do this without you. We are now finalizing all the orders, putting the finishing touches on the structures, and letting the gorgeous jars and jars of pickles come to taste. This is going to be your lounge and we cannot wait to share the goods with you on and off the playa.
For those of you who will be on playa, please stop by and see us at the Dusty Ladies, on the corner of 7:30 and Alyssum. If we don't know you, be sure to introduce yourself so we can thank you in person. And be sure to come by for our official Jellyfish dance party around dusk on Wednesday Aug. 29th. We'll have a few interactive Fire art pieces, the bar in full swing and a sick lineup of DJ including: Left\Right (breaks), D Nice (glitch), Spotman (electronica), and Kelsey. Fun for everyone, we hope to see you there.
As for your Kickstarter rewards, we're headed to the playa in a couple days to set up the illustrious jellyfish, so we'll get working on delivering the rest to you all when we get back in September.
Thank you again for your love, support and encouragement!
Thank you everyone so far who's donated to the Pickled Jellyfish!! We've been kicking the project into gear and have made some great progress. After a few successful construction parties, a solder gathering, and a number of trips to the fabric store, we're well on our way to completing this project bigger and better than we first expected. The lounge seating is complete and ready to be packed, the jellyfish structure is painted and constructed, and the light projects are midway through development.
We have a bunch of pickles to make tomorrow night at our pickle party and expect about a dozen gallons in tow for the week in Black Rock City. All those who are getting pickles as a reward, you'll have your choice of a few awesome flavors!
There are only 3 days to go so lets kick this into high gear!! We have the project resources covered, but we still have some more to go in order to get all of the wine we expect to pour over the week. Let your friends know about the project so we can meet that goal! Thanks again everyone for your encouragement, your donations and for helping us get the word out about our fundraiser.
