Playa Iron Liver Contest
For three years, the Black Rock Gazette held the Playa Iron Chef Contest, their thinly-veiled ploy to get fed gourmet food, cleverly disguised as a cooking contest. This year, the Gazette has opted not to do the contest, leaving the door wide open for Piss Clear to pick up the slack. But with a twist ... of lime, preferably.

Yes, Piss Clear is proud to announce our first annual Playa Iron Liver Contest! The rules are simple: Bring us your best cocktail, along with the drink recipe. We'll be accepting drink submissions on Thursday, between 2 PM and 5 PM, at our offices at Great Circle and Mainmast (2900 '), right behind the Artery.

The winner will get their photo and drink recipe published in our Fri./Sat. edition, along with a prize package that includes unrestricted use of the Piss Clear RV for two hours, including access to the fridge, wet bar, and shower; a collection of Burning Man stickers; and several Tasty Bite meals.

And we have a winner! It was tough deciding which cocktail was truly the best in our first Playa Iron Liver Contest -- especially towards the end, when our judgement was, shall we say, a bit compromised by all the fabulous entries.

In the end though, it was all about the Fandango Zombie -- mostly because it turned us into one! Thanks to our winner, Steve Courtney of Fandango, and to everyone who entered the contest! We had a blast meeting you all!

Fandango Zombie 1 oz. Jamaican rum
2 oz. Puerto Rican rum
1/2 oz. 151 proof Demerara rum
1 oz. orange Curacao
1 oz. orange juice
1 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. Grenadine
1 dash Pernod

Mix well with ice, serve in a 14 oz. glass.
