I wish I could participate, but we have a busy Saturday. Swim class and then Robots and Rockets class at the Sci. Museum.

Have fun!
Make it happen.

Hell no to the eating beforehand. We should have someone hit up Crescent Moon for some Afghani pizza... either that or there's that new Thai place on Central that is very, very good. I will bring the Shop Vac (actually, mine is a Rigid) if it's still needed, and a cordless drill/reciprocating saw. Also, I was thinking about bringing a 5 gal keg of Maibock, if no one objects, but I completely understand if drinking and besieging do not mix.

I'm all for the food ideas, and I do likes them innerestin' beers -- but I like them after power tools, precision work, and the close proximity of high intelligence & enormous egos thrown together for their first crack at collaborating on a tricky task. ;)

I've got a 21" stainless spoon, I don't know if it'll work, though, we'll have to back it w/ something.

Mind if we bend the hell out of it, a la Spoonbridge, then reinforce it?
