This memorial weekend, Larry Rinder hosted the most epic outdoor music, art, cooking, camping extravaganza at his property in Ukiah. Organized by David Wilson, Jesse Schlesinger and a crew of other makers, the weekend unfolded in mellow fashion with around 100 buddies meandering up and down the hills of the stunning property, finding art installations and music performances all along the way. Artist/chef Jerome Waag manned the hearth -- massive paella one night, slow roasted pig in the ground the next. I imagine Burning Man started with these kinds of best intentions (ambitious creativity shared among friends) and I was privileged to be a part of it.
