Wherein we've got bartending robots and friendly neighbors

We've got quite a few entrants for the Sixth Annual Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge this Sunday! It's looking good!

Do you like ROBOTS? And DRINKING? Experience incredible robot bartenders serving you drinks, lovingly crafted with MAD SCIENCE by the finest competitors in the art of robotic mixology, Sunday, July 21 at DNA Lounge!

Some of this year's entrants not only squirt, but can also fly, scuttle, and drive on the freeway.

You probably won't get wet. Probably. Or disassembled. Probably.

Seriously, this is one of the coolest, silliest things we do all year, and if you don't show up, we can't be friends any more.

And now I'm going to turn the mic over to MC Kingfish! Here's a story he told at the beginning of Monday Night Hubba this week. I transcribed this from the webcast at around 10:10:00:

Did anyone here go to the Big Show on Friday night?

So if you didn't go, if you don't know, it was our big "State Fair" show, and it's all kinds of State Fair themed acts. We had clowns, and we had a clown marching band with tubas and trombones and drums and all of that. And we started the marching band at 11th and Folsom, and marched our way all the way down the street to DNA Lounge and into the room.

But when we started, down there at 11th and Folsom, there was a lady standing on the sidewalk, on her cell phone. And as we started up -- Pa-rum pum. Pa-rum pum. Pa da-da-da-da-da-da, da -- and we start marching down the street, she comes right up to me and says,

"This is a. Residential. Building."

At 11th and Folsom. On Friday night. At 10:15pm.

And I looked at her and I said, "And now we're past it."

Because we're a marching band!

Like, literally we were in front of her "residential building" for about eight seconds, ok? She grabbed one of the clown girls out of the band, and said to her,

"This is unacceptable."

[Laughter]

And then, the denoument, Ladies and Gentlemen, and then she called DNA Pizza to complain, and said... "I would like to speak to a manager."

[Laughter]

If you need any further proof that showing up, participating, coming to DNA Lounge, going out and supporting your local live entertainment, is something you need to do... well...

Marching Band Megan on her cell phone is there to let you know.

You may remember the occupants of that "residential building" from their previous greatest hits, such as: forcing the original Oasis out of business back in 1998.
