Step 6: Organize a Production Party

Producing all the ingredients for the restaurant together with your family and friends is one of the most fun parts of it all, especially if you organize the production party well. Get this right and you are well on your way to opening an Instructables Restaurant

1. Make sure you have all the ingredients and tools you need to produce the items you selected available. It's better if everybody can really get to work and not have to wait if the only hammer is available.

2. Have enough space for working comfortably. And think about safety.

3. Organize groups for each item that needs to be made. Think about personality and personal qualities of the people involved. Practically it comes down to the people who like to do precise stuff for electronics and measurements, people who like to work hard and fast for sawing screwing and hammering? And don't forget to invite one or two people who like to clean and take care of everything else (calling for pizza, putting beers in the fridge) so the rest can do their job.

4. It could be a good idea to get one of each item done (chairs, tables, lights) before so you have a sense of the difficulties and timing involved. People will look at you for clear instructions.

5. It is a party so drinks and food are a must. If possible some of the snacks should feature on the menu of your future restaurant as well.

6. Good music, maybe Kraftwerk or Bauhaus.

This is really cool. I saw a <a href="http://www.giovannis-restaurant.com" rel="nofollow">restaurant in Ottawa</a> that must have been taken from this idea. It would be interesting if someone were to make the food purely from instructable things as well.
I really want to do something like this. I want to start a restaurant that serves <a href="http://www.chicagodeepdishpizza.com/en/about_us.html" rel="nofollow">pizza in Calgary</a>. Thanks for posting this here.
This is unbelievably awesome. If there were an Instructables resteraunt near here? They'd probably end up with most of my money....
This is like my dream... You, my friend, are awesome<br />
You're saling across the world? Nice!!!
When you're done sailing across the world come visit!<br />
How do you download the pdf?
You're Awesome!!<br />
Thank you for including the barrel chairs, I&nbsp;am looking into travel options to come visit.<br />
Hey great to hear from you!! Let us know and you get a royal welcome.<br />
&nbsp;Where is this Restaurant?
WOW&nbsp;!!!! that would be a cool place to stop in and check out! If I ever was in town it would be in the top 5 on my top 10 places to see and eat if I was hungry when there. Do you serve Coffee? I&nbsp; could always use a cup of good Coffee&nbsp; &nbsp; <br />
What?&nbsp; No butter pens for the toast?<br />
&nbsp;Does it have a jaw replacement machine, because when i visit, i will need one<br /> !
I'd do this if my peeps would let me. Unfortunately they won't.<br />
WOW - ya' all got free wifi too?<br />
Sure thing. Visitors need to be able to comment on the food at instructables.com. That's why we've put computers there as well.&nbsp;
<em>this is just amazingly awsm,<br /> congrats&nbsp; on planning &amp; design/construction.<br /> So Well Done</em>
If your were [at] Waag Society 15 anniversary party last wednesday evening you cannot have missed the flow jamming in this 400 years old building.<br /> <br /> Sorry party-people!<br /> Sorry amsterdam klezmer band<br /> <br /> ...I didn't RDFM: I've used foil for&nbsp; <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Mod-a-toaster-and-have-retro-art-toast-for-breakfa/" rel="nofollow">toasting the bread with nice figures</a>.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
holy crap! It's like christmas come early!<br /> <br />
is this a real restaurant that people can come visit? if so, where?<br />
I saw the group and forum topic (s)&nbsp; a while back, and to be honest, I didn't think you'd follow through (just another fun idea), but this party is fantastic!<br /> <br /> I'll have to have my own!<br />
seconded!<br />
Besides the three soups I&nbsp;see in the intro image, what else is on the menu?<br />
Until now we have the soup and the toast. We've had some chefs read through the recipes and pick several good ones. As we are not experienced restauranteurs ourselves we want to develop it slowly, have a few pilot events, and see where it goes. Next thing might be a cheese cake bar connected to a competition like you organize on the website. We'll provide all the cheesecakes on the web, each single one, and let the guests decide which ones they like most. <br />
Yes. Cheesecake Contest!<br />
Do it!&nbsp;I have a ginger and white chocolate one to enter :D Been meaning to iblise it for a while :D<br />
And then the next goal is to serve you Canida's venison dish here in Amsterdam some day.<br />
Amazing!!!!<br />
We're eyeing your truffles for the next time.<br />
Neat!&nbsp; The four-minute mousse is a crowd pleaser too!<br />
I can't believe that guide to Kiteman. It blows me away.<br />
Wa-hey, great work!<br /> <br /> I guess you are working up to a full-blown actual restaurant?<br /> <br /> <small>(Oh, please let the answer be &quot;yes&quot;!)</small><br />
Yes Kiteman, we are BUT it is also really meant as an instructable so I hope lots of people will adopt the idea and open Instructable Restaurants of their own.<br /> <br /> ps I still would like to incorporate some of the cool ideas you posted one year ago!<br />
That answer is so Instructables!<br /> <br /> Excellent idea (to just let others copy you), but (speaking commercially), you may want to require that users of your ibles credit your ideas.<br /> <br /> <br />
Yes the credit thing. To be honest this idea never crystalized in isolation anyway. I'm heavily indebted to Catalan designer Marti Guix&eacute; www.guixe.com (I worked with him on a concept restaurant Food Facility at Mediamatic in Amsterdam) and the whole instructables Restaurant only became more then an idea when Bas van Abel of Waag Society picked it up and said let's do it. He is now totally a co-author on this, and I hope we can find many more who are willing to co-write scripts for funky Instructables restaurants. The first experience was soooo worth the trouble. <br /> <br /> (I'm now thinking of a Kiteman/Instructables Speed Dating Hub. Hmmm what would that look like?)<br />
Actually... Arne and I are already working on an Instructables Bar as well. It is amazing when you look at the speed you can make stuff when you have good instructions ;-) I love the open approach! The team is already heating up for the next production party, for which anyone is invited to come to <a href="http://amsterdam.fablab.nl/" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam</a>.<br />
