I feel very honored to have been asked to speak at Anarchapulco 2022 and as much as I would have loved to have traveled down there to do it in person I just can’t get away for that long in February. Dorothy and I have decided to run a very small select event for this occasion.
Anarchapulco runs from Feb 14th-18th but we are only going to run the watch party for the last two days, Feb 17-18. We will be putting tickets on sale first come first served like all events, and expect as always they will sell out fast, especially with such a low number of seats that are open. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday at 10:00 AM CST. To get a notice the minute they go on sale get on the TSPC Telegram Channel.
People camping or just wanting to hang out can show up Wednesday afternoon if they want. We do sort of a reception social with beers, brats on the grill, etc. Most people tend to show up Wednesday evening but if you show up Thursday AM you won’t really miss any of the planned events. It just makes it easier as we start early Thursday and most people coming in from out of town tend to get in the afternoon before.
We decided to limit this event to 20 people, keeping it very intimate and excellent for discussions and networking. Of course we love our giant fall workshops with 90+ people but it can be overwhelming at the same time. With only 20 attendees and a staff of about 5 we can really cater to everyone.
I wanted to give some updates as to where we are with planning. Let’s start with food, our plan is to really blow out both breakfasts and dinners and keep lunch simple and still have some awesome surprises.
Breakfast Day One – This is going to be a Texas take on what is often called a Keltic Breakfast or “Traditional Irish Breakfast”. It will include things like grass fed beef brats from butcher box, brisket burnt ends, a chili pepper bacon I have just developed, it is very thick and more like “roast pork belly” than typical bacon. We will serve this with 9 Mile Farm Eggs, jalapeño corn bread with a jalapeño compound butter and finish it off with a Tequila Sunrise.
Breakfast Day Two – This is going to be an Asian-Texican Fusion themed “Steak and Eggs”. I will be making my famous sichuan peppercorn steak skewers, served along side awesome eggs. When I made these at the 10 year anniversary event people ate them until they could barely move and still wanted more. We will also include biscuits and gravy with a jalapeño and black pepper sausage lump in the gravy. The sausage of course will be hand made by me. We will add in some grilled peppers and mushrooms and top it all off with a Bloody Mary Bar.
Lunches – This is were we are going to keep it lighter. With the size of breakfast and dinners we think that is best but we are still doing some very cool stuff. Day one we are going to do sandwiches for lunch along with assortment of fixings and a few surprises. Day two is going to be burgers with a build your own fixins bar and if you want a double burger, no problem. I phoned in a favor to our audio guy (Aaron Hatch) who is also the head brewer now at Cedar Creek Brewery. So the burgers will be served a matched paired beer the brewery.
Dinners – We are definitely finishing off the event Friday night with steak and chicken fajitas catered and grilled on site by Uncle Julios. We had them cater the first time this fall and they were a huge hit. Booze Whisper (David Seigler) and I will be running a margarita bar during this dinner as well. Thursday night’s dinner is still TBD but we think it is going to be BBQ also catered. We are shopping vendors and I will personally do that hard work of sampling each of them prior to selection. Thursday before dinner Booze Whisperer David and I will be staffing a pre dinner Martini Bar.
Remember this is a “watch party” for Anarchopulco 2022. We just invested this fall in major upgrades to our AV (thanks to Hatch) and now have a 100 inch drop screen and a bad ass projector. So we will be live streaming the presentations from Anarchopulco and having discussions about them. I will be doing my presentation on homestead life style design on day one, live-streaming it out to the folks an Anarchopulco.
The presentations from Mexico should be right up our ally. The presentations on Thursday are all about off grid and homestead living. The presentations on Friday will hone in on crypto and agorism.
I don’t have a full list of presenters and topics yet from the Anarchopulco side but we will likely pick and choose as a group the ones most interesting to us to focus on. We also will have plenty of time to do work in stuff from anyone that wants to present anything and with a small group like this I can really answer any and all questions about anything guests want to know about. Honestly we have never done an event with such a limited head count before.
Also it looks like I will have a guest who is experienced with 3D printers, he is making sure he can come before fully committing. If he comes we will be able to walk though exactly how to set up and use a 3D printer, which I really need to learn myself anyway. As always I have some other surprises in the works.
Okay – When Can I Get a Ticket?
Once again ticker sales on Saturday, January the 8th at 10 AM CST. The best way to not miss anything get on the TSPC Telegram Channel. We are going to do this one with a 250 deposit and 250 due upon arrival.
I always get burned with cancels with events and limited seating so this is my new refund policy. You have 10 days from payment to get a refund, after that I do not offer a refund, however, you can sell your spot to anyone that wants it and they generally go very quickly in the special TeleGram Group unless it is totally last minute. Again you will get access to this group after you join or if you are an alum of our events you should already be in it.
The Potential Downside
One reason I just can’t go that time of year is it is winter, stuff freezes up, etc. I am not comfortable leaving for over a week during that time of year. The odds are about 60% the weather will actually be amazing, it often is here in February, it is about 30% it will be really cold but no big deal, we will have heaters in the shop, etc. There is a 10%ish chance we will have ice, etc. Everyone knows what happened in February last year right? Still the last time something like that happened here before last year was the 1960s. So the 10% is likely a bit overstated but I do try to under promise and over deliver on everything.
If you do camp you will have to deal with cold nights no matter what, the back shop will be open to camp in always of course.
P.S. – And if you have never been here before you will finally know what “talk to the squirrel means”.
