Salon nearing half way mark in funding...


The Salon project is on the verge of hitting its half way point in funding!  If we get to $250k that means that we can start full on construction in August, and that everyone who donated for a bottle will unlock the whiskey option!

UPDATE: Thanks to Cameo Wood’s upgrade to the Manual for Civilization Level we have blown right through the $250k mark!  Whiskey option is now unlocked!

We just received confirmation that the Salon will be receiving a $25,000 gift from the Cordelia Corporation who will be sponsoring a shelf in the Library. This gift was directed by long time member and podcast listener Doug Ellis. This has put us within a few thousand dollars of our half way point of $250,000 which will let us get started on construction!

Many thanks to Doug and all our donors for helping us get here.  Next stop – $495k…
