The fine makers over at the Boiler Bar in Oakland, California, are hosting a May Day Party this Saturday, May 2nd, from 8 p.m. “till the flowers wilt.” There will be snake charming, cancan girls, fire and may pole dancing, burlesques, lots of live music, handmade hooch from the Boiler Bar, flaming aerial spectacles, and a chance to see the Golden Mean up close and personal.


Pictured above are Jon Sarriugarte and Krysten Mate, makers of the Golden Mean and key members of the Boiler Bar crew. We’ve featured them in MAKE Volume 16, on Make: Online, and they’ve been a presence at every Maker Faire we’ve hosted. Come see the Boiler Bar extravaganza as well as the Golden Mean gorgeous snail at this year’s Maker Faire Bay Area 2009 on May 30th and 31st.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
