Instructables' Annual Pre-Maker Faire Ice Cream Social! Answered

It's that time of year again! In the spirit of Maker Faire and all things DIY, Instructables is hosting our annual Pre-Maker Faire Ice Cream Social - and you're invited!

We want to thank our awesome community of authors for sharing all the cool stuff they're making, and for helping us grow our site to 75k projects! We will be hosting this free ice cream social at our downtown San Francisco headquarters for all our authors and maker friends. Come meet the team behind Instructables and get an inside peek at our lab.

In addition to some frozen Liquid Nitrogen ice cream treats and adult-beverage popsicles, we will be holding a "Show & Tell." Bring along a small project of yours to show off!

And, just in case you're not already going, we'll be raffling off a select number of tickets to the Bay Area Maker Faire.

So please come join us! RSVP in the comments below


When: Thursday, May 17 4-9 pm
Where: 82 2nd Street, San Francisco


Looking forward to meeting you,
Karen and the rest of the Instructables Team

I had decided against going to Maker Faire this year since I have Bay to Breakers on Sunday but maybe I'll go to this and let the raffle decide? :)

What are the guide lines for show and tell, particularly what size? I have some projects that are hand sized and another the size of a piece of check on luggage.

If you can get it inside and up a flight of stairs under your own steam, life is good.

I'll check and see if I have $500 for a round trip flight to San Fran in my piggy bank.
"Shake, Shake"
Only $0.75.
I need to get a better allowance.

Maybe one year when the kids are older and we've paid down some of Abigail's medical bills, we can lug everyone to the bay area and crash the Instructables HQ.

San Francisco smells like fish, though. The whole damn city.

There seem to be a lot of instructables members in Utah. Maybe we should have our own ice cream social...


my vote is to have it at Memorial Park in Provo. I can bring stuff. A few blocks of dry ice would be fun... we could mix our own ice cream in cups with chips of it, or freeze whipped cream rosettes on top of the dry ice.


Maybe if we get enough attending, some of the instructables staff will decide to drop by, too. It's only what... a 12 hour drive? There's even a local hacker space: http://thetransistor.com/ (I need to remind Josh to get a membership there)

Street parking will probably fill up. If you can, take public transit on Market street to Second, and walk two blocks south.

Lots of metered parking and lots nearby! No good free parking near that I can think of, though.
