[dorkbotpdx-blabber] Yet another question: Can we host a Make Faire

Is Maker Faire something that has to be in a place like the OCC (Oregon 
Convention Center)? God, I hope not.

Or is it small enough for ADX or The Wathershed to host it?

Can it be combined with, say, SOAK, which is the local Portland
Burning Man event in June?
