One of the things I LOVE about Burning Man is that the unexpected happens.
Of course, that can be a double edged sword when your RV breaks down in Gerlach a mere 10 miles from the event.
Or, it can work in your favor when you’re gifting chapstick and come upon a group of people in desperate need of chapstick.
While I was venturing out to the trash fence in deep playa with my friend and her kid, we noticed a bunch of lights off in the distance.
And since we are a curious bunch, we decided to go there to see what it was about.
And we stumbled on an OASIS!
A guy in a fuzzy yellow wig had built himself a little BICYCLE BAR.
He had a bar around his bike and he pedaled out into deep playa, set up speakers, played some wonderful tunes – and sure enough – people flocked to him.
He was serving chilled beer or a tiki drink made with pineapple juice.
Oh, so delicious!
Isn’t it lovely?!
You can be just exploring a new area, expecting absolutely nothing to come of it, when all of a sudden something lovely drops into your lap!
So here’s to the Dusty Pineapple bicycle bar in deep playa.
I salute you in all my pineapple finery!
