2007 THEME CAMPS & VILLAGES
Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro
For the eighth consecutive year one of the most anticipated, revered, outrageous, and personable theme camps makes it's triumphant return to Black Rock City: Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro, the friendliest concentration camp on the playa. Nestled within the confines of Wheeeee!Ville BDC&WB will once again be pouring vintage California merlot, zinfindel, and cabernet sauvignon while dismembering one of America's icons, Barbie. Be sure to drop by and have a glass of wine and feel free to dispose of any of your unwanted Barbies, Kens, and assorted trailer trash. BDC&WB has been written up and featured in The San Francisco Chronicle, Wired magazine, Burning Man TV, the novel "The Man Burns Tonight", "Desert To Dream: 10 Years of Burning Man Photography" by Barbara Traub, CNN, the Houston Chronicle, Washington Post, and The Sacramento Bee. And once again BDC&WB will be hosting one of the playa's favorite events short of burn night, the annual Eplaya/3playa Meet & Greet. Check the Burning Man calendar for the official listing. Your hosts again this year include Dr. Pyro, Frank the Vintner, Blowfish, Chickenbutt and his lovely wife Renee, Sunsetred, Garcia, Felony Arson, Buster, KJ, Gary, barB, Don, Tots, Shorty, Marta, David, Xander, Joe, Ferd, The Professor, Ron, Sue, Liam, Terry, Carly, and a whole host of characters better left unmentioned. So be sure and drop by our little slice of paradise, and be prepared to be offended by the Barbiebarians, the sickest bastards on the playa.

Black Rock City Hardware
We are the Black Rock City Municipal Hardware Shoppe and have been helping the playa since 1999. If you are building a camp and find out you lack something or that something needs to be fixed, come to us and see if we can help. We'll have power tools, hand tools, materials, fasteners, and people to help you when you are in need. If we can't fix it, we can at least drown your sorrows in whiskey and provide an ear to listen. Disclaimer: We are not a secret front for the Church of
Volis [praise be his name], the god of control although we will have a shrine to Volis [praise be his name] dedicated to the virtues of science and duct tape and how it relates to the foundations of the universe.
