I don't want to be a party pooper, but that stairwell is a fire exclusion zone. The idea of this is there is NOTHING that is flammable and nothing that is obstructing the path or for people to catch them selves on. Perhaps we paint the walls? We already have a hard time with the fire department, I d...

I think toilets are essential for the summer. Word will spread quickly that we have bad toilets, and it could tarnish our reputation as a good festival space. Maybe we can do something temporary perhaps? Although, I don't see how it could cost more than 2-3 K to do the toilets, especially with free ...
