Yesterday I saw Halloween decorations in Walmart.

Look, I know it’s September, but in the rush to reach the awesomeness that is Halloween, we’re skipping over one of the best fall holidays of all – Oktoberfest! This humble holiday features over two weeks of booze and bacchanalia, only to have been usurped by one night of cosplay. Well, to that we say “Nay!” This year, the Midsouth Makers is taking back Oktober, and to get things started off right, we’re going to brew our very own beer!

This Sunday at 2:30pm at the Space, member Ben Eishen will be hosting an informal discussion and demonstration of basic beer brewing.  We’ll have some hot wings on hand, but feel free to bring any food or pre-brewed drinks you’d like to indulge in during the demonstration. This will be an 18+ event, so please leave your kids at home for this one.  Before you crack open a pumpkin this year, come by and crack open a cold one with the Midsouth Makers!

Helping to bake a new future!

Happy October!

Can you believe it’s October, already? Time to start getting into the Halloween spirit. And what better way to do that than with lots of spooky treats? That’s right, the Midsouth Makers are gonna have a Halloween themed bake sale! We’re gonna have lots of sweets – cookies, brownies, homemade marshmallows, a few whole cakes; there’s even a couple of sugar free goodies. But, wait! That’s not all! We’ll also have a few non-food items, such as hand sewn pumpkins and decorated paper bats.

Sounds like it’s gonna be loads of fun, doesn’t it? Well, the more people we have helping and coming to the bake sale, the more fun it will be. So, we will need all types of help – people passing out flyers, donations of many types (food, non-food, monetary), volunteers for the bake sale, someone taking pictures, people showing off projects to potential victims… I mean, potential customers. Costumes, especially homemade, are GREATLY encouraged.

Here’s the specifics – The bake sale will be held on Saturday, October 30. Set-up time will start at 9 am. The bake sale will go from 10 am to 1 pm. The location is Kevin and Brandi’s front yard, at 850 Avon in Memphis. Here is a file containing the sign up sheet, a set of guidelines for food donations/ingredients list and the flyer. If you have any questions or want to virtually ‘sign’ the sign up sheet, send it to board@midsouthmakers.org and it will be forwarded to Brandi.

Let’s make this an AWESOME bake sale! Be there or beware!
