We’re turning this dilemma into a First Friday installation that will take place on Friday, March 5 outside of theStory from 7-9pm. Below you’ll find the questions that we’ll be asking via anonymous means. There will be a live DJ, food, and probing creativity…all for ‘free’…
Tallied results will be posted on this site by Sunday, March 7, 2010.
See you on Friday.
