Makefair 2009


I happened to be browsing on Gizmodo and spotted a post that Makefair was taking place in San Mateo so I headed down to see what all the fuss was about. I had a wonderful time. My only complaint was there was too much to see! There was no way to check out everything in a single day. Next year I have to plan ahead, get some friends together and spend two days there.

The whole crew from the Boiler Bar Theatre did a wonderful performance.
