Welcome back Burners!
(updated 2:30pm Sept 1st)

 
I’m sure your time out in Black Rock City was nothing short of stupendous. Having the Burners from around the world all congregate in Reno afterwards to cooldown before they head back to the default world is almost as fun as Burning Man itself! Here is rundown  (below) of the hotel situation in Reno right now (as of 10:10pm, August 31st), so you don’t have to run around, get frustrated and end up sleeping spread over two porch chairs.
 
In case you missed it, we put this together for the stranded Burners last Monday about restaurants, bars, shopping, etc is HERE
 
If you didn’t hear, there is a giant rib festival in Sparks (which you drive right through heading west as you come into Reno today  (Monday). The Best in The West Rib Cook-Off is a huge street festival featuring BBQ fanatics and connoisseurs from around the United States squaring off the the title “Best in The West.” The food and people watching is normally top-notch. At the very least, go buy a ton of BBQ sauce  you won’t find in your hometown stores to take home with you.
 
TUESDAY: Thievery Corporation is playing with a full band at the Grand Sierra Resort with Mark Farina and Dirtwire as part of the 5th Annual Great Depressurization Chamber. Grand Sierra has been the spot for post-BRC for years. It’s definitely a great “last hurrah” to gather everyone in one spot to dance to one of the most incredible and influential musical acts of all time.  Tickets available HERE. Afterparty features Rob Garza of Thievery, jackLNDN, Miss Cooper and Her Pet Craigslist Hookup and more at the stunning new LEX Nightclub. Plus five four-star restaurants, cafe, spa, driving range and 24 hour bowling, to name a few things.
