Look at the new courtyard! The shaded area near the lower left corner – in front of HPIC. Underneath those pavers on the drawing is the asphalt that needs to be ripped up and taken away. Bring your muscles and whatever you need to vent on Depave Day and help us hoist chunks of asphalt outta here. The asphalt will be prepped, scored and ready to rumble into a big Dumpster that will cart it away. Starting around 10am till however long it takes. And yes, there will be beer.

In the spirit of Día de Muertos, we will have an Altar de muertos upon which you may place a small memento of someone who has passed that you would like to remember. This can be a (small) photo, a poem, or just their name. Between sets of the band (8:30 or so) people can come up to the mic and share a short (30 seconds) remembrance. This can be merely saying their name, a humorous story, or whatever you would like others to know about this person. It should be a celebration. Barry, our master of ceremonies, will read something for you, if you desire.
Parental Guidance – Kids welcome until 9pm. There are toys and games set up on tables. Parents, please be aware of your child’s activities. Chasing games are discouraged.
