Here are photos from the 2012 Temescal Street Fair that kind of go along with the time lapse:

And now for the dog section of this blog post:
suspicious dog is sususpicious
curious dog with hidden eyes is curious
small dog has small dog syndrome. except with jason.
This is the part of the blog post where I post pictures of people checking out Jason and Alfie and Lisa’s bikes:
Is this guy looking at the waterford or the softride beam? (softride only makes trailer hitches and bike rack accessories now? how sad)
what about this guy?

East Bay Mini Maker Faire was rainy but fun. The mini-sized faire made for a much more manageable experience than the gigantor (but awesome) hodgepodge of overstimulation that is the full-scale bay area version. it was held at the park day school in temescal. originally scheduled to be mostly outside, the planners did an excellent job with the rain contingency plan.

the eggbot does pumpkins for halloween as well. It looks like the marker holder is hinged so that it just rests on the surface, which is helpful for not-quite-round surfaces like little pumpkins and gourds.
Photos of components of the world’s smallest post service kit from leafcutter designs. Pretty awesome idea. They send you a real letter with teeny writing and a magnifying glass for reading. Comes with a custom wax seal, stamp and all. check out their video.

such a cool project – it’s a growing (and shrinking) ice brain. Refrigeration coils form the brain and water vapor in the air condenses and then freezes onto the coils.

This year’s Taste of Temescal was Tuesday, September 14th. For $30 (proceeds went to the Women’s Cancer Resource Center, Good Cents for Oakland, Lion’s Center for the Blind, Emerson Elementary School, Claremont Middle School and the Oakland Tech PTO) you got about 20 tastings of enough tasty food to get painfully full – if you chose to eat it all yourself. (Note to self: split the ticket next year)
Los Malcriados, playing in front of Aunt Mary’s Cafe:
“Texas Caviar” (black-eyed peas), salpicon (shredded beef? pork?), and a sweet potato bar from Aunt Mary’s Cafe:
Remedy, serving scones, some of Ritual‘s La Folie drip coffee, and artful barista poses:
Chioke from The Dime
DJ Crimson and The Dime in front of Kasper’s Hot Dogs on 46th:
Raciel from Tara’s Organic Ice Cream serving a variety of flavors – vanilla bean, chocolate, lemon verbena, turkish coffee, blueberry mint, and strawberry and mango sorbets. Blueberry mint’s my favorite, but I went with the sorbet this time.
Barlata had paella again..
The akido institute was not serving food.
Scream Sorbet, who are opening their store “soon”. (it’s all good, they’re still at the farmers markets) I had a delicious citrus fennel sorbet.
Bakesale Betty. I had their chicken pot pie and banana bread, but only ended up with a picture of coffee cups. they are so damned nice.
