Medina Maitreya, San Francisco – Burning Man is an annual week long event held in the Black Rock Desert in northern Nevada. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy on Saturday evening. In 2008, 49,599 people attended Burning Man. The event is described by many participants as an experiment in community, radical self expression and radical self reliance. To some it’s a spiritual experience. To others it is ultimate artistic fulfillment. And to a select few thousand it’s hedonistic debauchery at its finest.
The gelcaps are packaged in a little bottle that comes in a little satchel with a little tag for instructions – very Alice in Wonderland but they go down smooth and feel all natural while they’re doing it. There’s kind of an herb-alicious multi grain scent to them, and the ingredients list reads like the salad section at Applebees. Below it, “embrace the oxymoron: become a healthier drinker.” Hmm.
