OK so sometimes I promise I’m going to tell people about events and then forget who I promised… heehee…. Here are some big events coming up that I’ll be doing, if you have any interests in joining then you can contact me.
Feb 8-10 – Wicked Faire in Edison NJ wickedfaire.com although the site is wonky lately. I used to do henna there. I’m not working there this year. I’ll be attending (probably Saturday afternoon only) to do some shopping cause I like some of the vendors.
Feb 16 – PEX “Heartburn” – party in Philly. This Philly Burning Man camp puts on a kick ass party, all kinds of music, performances, fire dancers…. Invite only, I MAY have some spares or be able to get you some quickly so let me know if you are interested. goes from 10 pm (I get there earlier to help set up and will be volunteering on the ice luge 10-11) until after dawn. It’s $20 with costume, $50 without. So dress your ass up!!!! (Anything fun and obviously not street clothes/jeans is prob. fine) Sign up on their mailing list if you want to hear about future parties (I think it’s about 3-4 a year?)
May 23-26 – PDF (Playa del fuego) in Delaware. Our regional “burn” event – tickets will go on sale March 22 and April 2 and may sell out almost immediately. I’ll try to grab ones for you if you know you are going.
June – most likely either June 6-8 or 13-15 – Wildfire – fire arts weekend with classes on poi, staff, hoop, breathing, etc. Location not final, probably 45 minutes south of Boston. Ticket sale date not announced yet.
August 25 – Sept 1 – BURNING MAN! I’ll hopefully be performing in the philadelphia fire conclave the night of the big burn! (the conclave needs to be accepted but it shouldn’t be an issue) Tickets on sale now, and will only go up in price. they MAY sell out, and they will NOT be selling any at the gate regardless of whether they sell out.
I don’t have many other things planned. After Burning Man, there’s Fall PDF, and maybe, MAYBE fall wildfire.
The veggie board retreat, I may or may not be able to go, depending on whether it’s driving distance and whether I have enough vacation time. Same for any paloozas (for those who don’t know, it’s a nickname for parties with friends from a private message board) — Lhia’s is for sure, anything in NJ/NY/CT most likely.
From the end of February until mid August, I’ll be driving to Philly most Sundays for conclave practice. (So – those in or near that route, if you ever want to do lunch or something let me know! I have to be in North Philly from 4-6 pm those days.)
Money probably will get tight for all these things, but the more pressing issue is time. Vacation time. We’ll see what happens. Spring PDF, Wildfire, and Burning Man are definitely going to happen, one way or another.
