Playa dust and pickletinis party
After being gone for a month, Chris and I were eager to see all our friends again and tell them all about our travels. What better way to show them what we saw on the road than to subject them to a slideshow party?
With the help of a borrowed projector and gifted screen, we projected the best of the 1065 photos we took on the way to and from Burning Man onto our living room wall.
What we ate: Since we were already feeling a little nostalgic about our vacation, we served foods that reminded us of the road trip.
- squeaky cheese curds in honour of Wisconsin
- diy ice cream in a jar (we used soy milk to make a vegan & lactose-free option)
- chips and salsa - a major part of our Burning Man diet
Chris and I discovered the awesomeness that is a Black Rock City Pickletini after one of our bikes broke down and we spent an afternoon hanging out at pimp-yr-bike while the guys there tried to fix the vintage European folding bike's inner tube.
