How-To-Get-A-Drink-At-A-Bar University

  • Summary

    Hi friend, I'm Lenny, and I'm here to help you. There will be many a bar at KB, and most of them will be confusing. Is this a drink line or a dance line? Where do I put my money? Who’s actually in charge here? Come learn the basics at HTGADAAB University!

    Full description of the concept

    *Important Disclaimer* - All alcohol and other beverages (alcohol-free options will be available as well) for this project will be paid for by me. This dream application is only to cover the cost of the rest of the project, including the structure itself which we will be built using bolts so it can be deconstructed and used again for years to come.

    You might recognize this project from the very first Kiez Burn where it was named “How To Get A Drink At A Bar That Got Denied An Art Grant And Then Had Its Location Taken Away” Or HTGADAABTGDAAGATHILTA for short. Famous for its whiskey shoes and vodka squeezeballs. The following year, in my absence, It was simply named “Lenny’s Bar.” But now I’m back, and ready with the help of the community to take this project to the next level!

    Our goal is to give you all a world-class education in what it takes to get a drink at a bar at a burn. This project blurs the lines between art installation, workshop, and community activity. Imagine if you will, a beautiful wooden bar with handcrafted countertops, bottles of the finest delights dangling from ropes, decorations and lights that call to the eyes from afar. A beacon of knowledge and refreshment open all day every day. The left side of the bar will be for undergrads, still new to the process of getting a drink at a bar. Upon your first visit, you must go to this side. The right side of the bar will be for advanced students ready to test themselves in a live action scenario. But if you fail, it’s back to the left side you go. Once you’ve graduated HDGADAAB University you will be prepared to visit all of the other wonderful bars at Keiz Burn worry free. What once were flashing hectic confusion zones tucked into a corner of a camp, will open up into a thirst-quenching Oasis at the mercy of your mastery.

    Teacher-Training will be held at the beginning of the festival where you can become a certified professor, and sign up for shifts during the event. This is, in essence, a community bar, so if there is no professor to be found, jump behind the bar yourself and wing it! It will be centrally located and not a part of any camp.

    As history has shown, this project will happen regardless of how many Waldos try to sabotage it. If the community supports it, we will have an Ivy League University. Without community support, it might just be a cardboard box and a bottle of whiskey, but I’ll still learn ya good.

    How do you plan to Strike the Project?

    I will break down the project, take it home with me and store it until next year.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    They can come to the teacher training workshops and become licensed professors. I would also enjoy a few hands during build on occasion.
