The playa is a harsh mistress and overstimmed nights can lead to painful mornings. Pharmakon, open M-F mornings, 11am-1pm from, is the yourt "Oh, gawd!" hangover recovery station, replete with a full menu of tried and true playa picker uppers.

This year we have broadened Pharmakon’s offerings to include simple first aid items for (hapless) virgin burners who find themselves unprepared. We have found even seasoned burners can be surprised by the fragility of their bodies in our dusty wonderland. By offering various OTC remedies we hope to mitigate trivial demands on Rampart medical services and provide a gentle lesson in self-sufficiency along with the bandaid and a hug. (Unfortunately we will no longer be offering ameliorative trepanning or exorcisms as we broke the skull drill and drank all the holy water).

FATHER JACK'S PANTY SHACK offers solace for souls experiencing that ‘not so fresh’ feeling. Eager participants in need of a little freshening up can score a dainty thong, beefy briefs or a naughty hybrid that tap dances on the line between decency and profane. You never know what you’ll find when you put your hand inside the box of mystery but we can promise you’ll get rousing applause, catcalls and possibly even a consensual reacharound as you model your new underoos for our staff of helpful shackmasters.
