‘Tis the season! No, not for Christmas but for the annual flock of migrating Burners on their way to and from the Burning Man festivities! The Squeeze in LOVES our Burners for so many reasons.
For those unfamiliar with Burning Man, you may be wondering…
Burning Man is an annual weeklong celebration of its very own culture – arts, diversity, entertainment, music – the unknown. The event takes place the week leading up to and including Labor Day, in the secluded Black Rock Desert of Nevada.
It all starts with the playa (a blank canvas, if you will) and by the time it’s in full swing, people from all around the world and all walks of life have come together, evolving the pristine, unpopulated desert into Black Rock City with a population of nearly 70,000 people!
The culmination of the Burning Man event includes a 13 story tall wooden structure in the shape of a man, being ceremoniously burned to the ground. Then, after Labor Day, the great migration home begins and the Burners exit the playa, leaving no trace they were ever there.
Burning Man has a unique culture of art and self-expression, just like the Squeeze. Whether you’re on the playa or at the Squeeze, you’re encouraged to enjoy life by being yourself and expressing who you are. Although you should leave no trace when you leave Black Rock City, we encourage you to leave your mark here at the Squeeze.
You’ll see when you walk in, the countless others who’ve signed the walls, making it a form of self expression to all our visitors – making it unique with growth and expansion on each visit. We accept you as you are and we LOVE you!
In fact, that’s another thing we’re proud of at the Squeeze In — something you can also find at Burning Man – a spirit of love and acceptance.
From the Burning Man website: “Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.” We LOVE the Burning Man philosophy!!
As you meet Burners, you quickly find there are people from all economic backgrounds…from CEOs and attorneys to unemployed free spirited gypsies.
The beautiful thing is once you get to Black Rock City, your role in life doesn’t matter and you are there to have a good time while expanding yourself and growing with new experiences and journeys free of any judgment. Anytime you walk into the Squeeze in, you may have a similar experience.
You’ll just as likely find people in suits, families with kids and someone who just rolled out of bed, still in their jammies with a shock of bed-head-hair seated at the next table. Either way, suit or jammies, come as you are. We’re honored and eager to have the pleasure of serving you the Best Omelettes on the Planet.
After all, it’s YOU – our welcome guest – who makes the Squeeze In what it is. We love our EggHead Community – we’re eager to add our genuine welcome anytime you visit.
As Burners make their way through, they fill our seats and always bring such a good positive energy. Often times during the annual migration, it would appear the Squeeze In is a ‘Burners only” breakfast joint because the restaurant is overflowing with our many hot friends. We absolutely LOVE it!
So, if you’re on your way through town either to or from the playa, we’re thankful to be part of your journey. We welcome you to be part of ours – it’s one and the same. We guarantee you’ll not find a better breakfast, lunch, Bloody Mary or mimosa on your journey to or from the burn!
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves…
“Anyone may be an EggHead. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.”
Welcome to the Squeeze In!
