A big thanks to Cowboy for bringing the Bedrock Racer, Stacy, & Spanky for staffing the bar, HOTD for loaning the Playatech bars, Ed as Masseuse, Katrina for 24hr support, the fire artists, and all those anonymous donors that flooded the PartySnail coffers with donations for the raffle, bacon wrapped Hot Dogs, and Pina Coladas!

PartySnail Spring BBQ Fundraiser

Time sometimes flies like a bird, sometimes crawls like a snail; but a man is happiest when he does not even notice whether it passes swiftly or slowly.

– Ivan Turgenev (Russian author 1818-1883)

Hello PartySnailers!

Come out for a Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog and other BBQ’d treats! We will be selling these bacon wrapped hot dogs as a fund raising item. No work involved! Hot dogs will be for sale for $15 a dog. We will also be offering some other treats those who are not interested in hot dogs.

All proceeds from the hot dog sales will benefit the PartySnail. These funds go toward storage, transport, and improvements. There is no way to know how we will get the PartySnail out to the playa just yet. Everyone is working on settling their ticket needs.

2012 Theme: Fertility 2.0

With both DangerRanger and Playa Info saying the same thing, I am lead to believe it. It seems the theme for Burning Man 2012 will be Fertility 2.0

Be it birthing the ideologies of Burning Man into the world or how we bring our ideas to life at Burning Man, I think this is an exciting theme! Being pregnant with an idea or thought, carrying it with you, sharing it with others, allowing it to develop until it’s finally ready, and exerting great efforts to bring it to life, this really speaks to how many art projects, like the PartySnail, come into being.

How will the PartySnail incorporate this theme? Comment and discuss your thoughts and ideas!

JRS: Mutant Vehicle Exhibition July 2012

Caught this in the latest Jack Rabbit Speaks:


The National Automobile Museum in Reno NV, is hosting an exhibition of Mutant Vehicles, including the very first Mutant Vehicle brought to the playa by our very own Danger Ranger.  The exhibit will be on display through July 2012, so you’ll have to catch it before your trip to BRC!  More info at:  (Hot tip about this museum: there are costumes and clothing on display as well – cool stuff!)” – Burning Man Update: The Jack Rabbit Speaks, Volume 16, Issue #4

Now that sure sounds interesting! Anyone interested in going?

Fundraiser BBQ

Come out for a Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog! We will be selling these bacon wrapped hot dogs as a fund raising item. No work involved! Hot dogs will be for sale from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, $15 a dog.

All proceeds from the hot dog sales will benefit the PartySnail. We have collected over $700 dollars and are still trying to reach our goal of $2200! Every hot dog helps!

Looking for Artists Assistance

We need visuals here people! In trying to describe the the way the snail will look on playa, a picture is worth a 1000 words. Problem is, we’re not very good at making a picture of what hasn’t been finished. So we thought maybe someone who wants to help can help with that!

I have created a PDF with illustrations of the Party Snail in it’s current form. You can download this and printout, color, draw, sketch, crayon or whatever you like with them! We want to visually show:

  • Our new foot design (That extends from nose to tail)
  • Some meshing or netting that obscures the upper cab of the truck & shows an almost connection from shell to foot
  • Shows some new Stalks
  • Looks snaily in the foot, spreading wider at the bottom than at the top
I attached a drawing that is very rough and does not give a lot of good perspective. Please follow the link below or download the attached PDF. Please, we want you to be creative and express how you think the snail should look. We’re all way to close to the snail to be able to have visions beyond our boxes.
