August Repair Cafe Pasadena

A special Repair Cafe will have a variety of tinkers and tailors as well as tours of the new Arroyo Food Co-op store, previously George's Meat Market on the corner of Villa and Wilson. The Really Really Free Market will be going on for your good condition items that someone else may need and for excess yard produce you may want to share...and there will be iced tea to cool all patrons. Other fun stuff is also in the works...stay tuned! If you have repair skills of any kind to offer, contact [masked]. Repairs may be paid in time dollars or by cash donation.

    [masked] (Arroyo Food Co-op)- Busy! Should have brought the other box with lubes and
    cleaners, but had some (limited) successes anyway. Encouraged our customers to get on the
    Web and find their _Manuals_, or ask on specific forums for their devices about their symptoms.

    As they say in the Maker community, "If you can't open it up, you don't really _own_ it!"

      Thanks Phil. This is a good point to convey for future events. Many new suggestions came out of this particularly exuberant event. This little idea is growing to a seriously productive and seriously fun community gathering.

    Just a suggestion to being a small light if you think that you may need it after dark in a somewhat dimly lit store.
    We will be there at 5 to set up. Repair Café is at 6-9. If possible, please unload your equipment and then park on the street as there are only a few parking spaces.
    It will be very fun tonite I am quite sure.
