JUNE 13th – BYODJ & SPLACE POSSIBILITIES – Bring Your Own Music for a BBQ (and art-making workshop!) in the Garden!
Happening ALL DAY (begins at 3pm)
Be Your Own DJ this Sunday at Le Petit Versailles! Our friend Orange will be setting up to DJ for an all afternoon BBQ (bring your speciality for the grill) at LPV. He wants you to BRING YOUR OWN MUSIC—Vinyl, CDs, iPods—and he’ll put it on! There will be good music, good food, and good people. What more can you ask for?!
2nd: Splace Possibilities
In the afternoon (from 3-5pm)
Bring a cork for a small boat making activity organized by Dillon de Give!
Splace Possiblity is a workshop that invites participants to build small boats with corks that have been collected from wine and beer drinkers at preceding events. This is not an instructional class, just a place to sit down and make a small boat however you like. Participants to the building action are invited to take a boat home as a souvenir, but must agree to sail it down a street gutter in a New York rainstorm, and document the experience in some way.
