open house

Summer 2016 BWC Open House this Friday

It's our Summer Open House. Please join us in welcoming our new robots to the shop!

From 5 PM until 8PM or so, we'll open our doors and fire up our new robot arms to celebrate the summer. We'll be showcasing some recently completed projects and raising a glass to all the great people we know and work with.

We'll be dancing (with robot arms), drinking, snacking, talking, and showing off. It's a great time to drop by and talk shop with us, if you want to learn more about what we do and how we do it.

Kids welcome, but it is a shop and a party. Lots of sharp corners around here. And they might learn some interesting new words!

October 14 2010 EatFoodTalkShop - Frank the Robot's Fifth Birthday Party!

Please join us for a happy evening birthday celebration: Frank, our trusty CNC machine, is turning five!

It's time for our regular 2nd-Thursday-of-the-month open house / project salon / OMGBBQWTF called EatFoodTalkShop! We're celebrating the fifth birthday of the beloved robot that changed our lives, launched our business, and has made many wonderful things for us all. I don't know what five is in robot years, but he's well deserving of praise for reaching an important milestone. So we're getting him a cake, and letting him blow out the candles (but NOT cut it).

Please come! When was the last time you went to a birthday party for a robot?

Please drop by and help us eat food, drink libations, and share project stories. We'll be showing off some big new exciting projects we're up to. Frank will strut his stuff as well with a few demos.

Kids welcome, but it is a shop and a party. Lots of sharp corners. And they might learn some interesting new words.

Eat Food Talk Shop June 18th, 6:30PM-9:30PM. Our first big open house at our new location! Lots to celebrate...

Please join us for our first open house at our new location. We've got lots to celebrate!

From finally finishing up our big move, to our great new fabrication studio & offices, to Jeffrey's passing his orals for his Architect license, to this fine hot summer that seems to finally have arrived... Boy we have so much to celebrate we're bursting at the seams!

So please drop by and help us eat food, drink libations, and share project stories. We'll be showing off our recently finished project: our new digs! Frank's got upgrades, our new office rocks, and the fabrication studio is all setup for fast production.

We'll have food and drink, you bring the friends! Kids welcome, but it is a shop and a party. Lots of sharp corners. And they might learn some interesting new words.

Hey there!

Rub your hands together and put your jacket on. It's time to warm your soul at Because We Can!
We'll be cooking up some hot cider (with a nip of something special if you're good), and making little BWC keep sakes.

Come see what we're making! We're not even sure exactly what it will be! But most likely, you'll get to take one home.

Bring some BBQ, snacks or drinks to share.

Hey there!

It's that time again for the Because We Can open house! Whoohoo!
We've been busy since the last one, and we have lots of stuff to show off.
But the most fun will be going through all our product prototypes that didnt work out!

We'll have a pile of stuff to see and a pile of stuff to buy! Think: Ray Guns, Trees & Robots.

So come on by, bring a friend, bring a project, buy a mustache, carve a pumpkin!

Yes- we will be having a pumpkin carving table. Why? Cause carving pumpkins is awesome. That's why.
Bring a pumpkin, leave a pumpkin, take a pumpkin, carve a pumpkin.
Im not sure what that means. But it'll be awesome!

March EatFoodTalkShop!

Hey there!

It's time for another *Eat Food Talk Shop!*

This is a monthly event where we get together and eat food and talk shop!

Come to our Office & Shop in Oakland and enjoy BBQ and libations while we casually talk about what we are working on next.

There is no stage, and no formal presentations. If you are a maker: please feel free to bring a project to show off. We'll simply pin a name tag on you and set you loose into the wild of the crowd.
We talk about everything from what kind of finish to use on wood, to how to fiberglass your car, to running a small business and making beer.

This event attracts people across multiple disciplines, and we hope it attracts you too!

*~~This month~~*

We'll be showing off some beautiful carvings for Hello!Lucky

As well as some new decorative milling ideas.

*~~Please bring~~*
Food and / or drink to share -- We'll have the grill going.
Yourself and Friends!

Decemeber EatFoodTalkShop is Friday, the 12th. Please come!

Hey there!

It's time for our Monthly EAT FOOD TALK SHOP!

It's kinda like a Dorkbot / Meetup / Maker Day / pechakucha but with BBQ & beer and a little more show-and-tell-free-for-all and no slideshows (thank god).

Bring something to share and something to show off, or at least the desire to talk to other folks who make stuff!

We don't have a video projector (yet), so if you need one to show off what you brought then you'll need to bring your own. We do have access to a forklift now, so if what you've got to show is really heavy we've got you covered.

Bring your friends too! Seriously! Please come! It's our monthly Open House!

We'll have some food and beer and 60's funk music and cool stuff to show off to help get things started.

The next one is FRIDAY, December 12th, it's holiday themed, and starts at 6:30 PM at our shop:

1722 15th Street, Suite C, Oakland CA 94607. Walk through the gate with the big wooden robot-cutout (decorated for x-mas) and we're down a bit and on the left. Huge roll-up door and Red '67 Dodge van. Can't miss us.

There's plenty of parking, 2 grills, a big robot, x-mas decorations, a stand-up vintage 'Toobin' video game, and a fire pit.

We hope you can make it!

You can also now subscribe to EatFoodTalkShop e-mail announcements & reminders, just by using the little box here on the right --->

November EatFoodTalkShop is upon us!

November EatFoodTalkShop is upon us tomorrow, November 13th, 2008!

It's kinda like a Dorkbot / Meetup / Mini-Maker Day / Pecha Kucha but with BBQ & beer and a little more fabrication-focused.

Bring something to share and something to show off (or at least some ideas or questions to talk about).

Bring your friends too! Honestly! We've had a number of folks show up that heard about it from our Blog. So don't be shy, drop on by!

We'll have some food and beer and cool stuff to show off and music to help get things started.

We all get to see neat stuff and learn something new! We'll be showing off video of the new Robot we're gonna be getting soon (fingers crossed)!

It starts around 6 PM, wraps up around 10 PM, but come whenever to 1722 15th Street, Suite C, Oakland CA 94607. Walk through the gate with the big wooden robot-cutout, and we're down a bit and on the left. Huge roll-up door and '67 Dodge van. Can't miss us.

There's parking, a (new) grill (yay!), and old grill, a big fridge, a big robot, and plenty of room.

We don't have a video projector so if you need one to show off what you brought then you'll need to bring your own. We do have access to a forklift now for the heavy show and tell!

We hope you can make it!
