Sunday, June 22:  The ECC's TradeMark G. will MC at Prepare For The Playa, a great mini-market of vendors, demos, classes, performances, and more to help you prepare for Burning Man.  Seriously, just getting to buy your playa needs under one roof really beats mail ordering blinky things from one place and pod belts from another (and paying shipping on both).  Be there!

TIP: Save $5 by RSVPing on the website.
