25-Nov-2006 (Sat) Wherein we take two steps forward and six steps back.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the DNA Lounge Kitchen is now open for business!

We're not serving full meals yet; our initial menu consists of nachos, quesadillas, and rice krispy treats. See, we've got a pretty decent menu planned out, but to buy the additional equipment needed to make that food, not to mention stocking the food itself, is gonna cost a few thousand dollars, which we don't have. So we finally said, "fuck it, let's see what we can do with a hundred bucks and just get this thing open." So Chef Sundance is up there making nachos for you all. Head up and say hi...

It's up on the balcony, on the other side of the room from coat check.

In less good news, we had no webcast on Thursday or Friday because our other Soundweb blew up. Soundweb, as those of you who have been reading for a while will recall, is the (pair of) computers/appliances that run our entire sound system. One of the pair died almost exactly a year ago, and we replaced it, but the second one died yesterday.

We've yet to be able to find a replacement, so the sound system is current being held together with chewing gum and strong language. A side effect of this is: no webcast. Oh, and a second side effect is that it's going to cost us like another five grand.

Imagine my joy.

    Just out of curiousity, where is the DNA-Lounge profit-wise, the black, the red, deep deep red, or is it running like a dotcom?

    I've been following the journal since before the place opened, so I hope you don't mind me asking.

    On the plus side, you have the makings of a killer nacho stand there.

    Perhaps a few more Top 40 or Hip-Hop nights so you can pay the bills.

    How much is usually in stereo? Just the webcast, or within the club, too?

    I'm looking forward to Halou...

      The club is stereo as well. In the main system, the main speakers on the left/right of the stage are what you'd expect, and the pair at the back (by the dj platform) are reversed, so lefts are diagonal. But that back pair is usually off during live shows (it's weird when vocals on stage come from behind you.) The under-balcony fills are a mono mix, as is the center speaker aimed at the balcony.
